Of Your Charity...

...please pray for John.  He has had to have major surgery a few days ago.  He was already very depressed beforehand, and addicted to his medications as well, and those factors and others are complicating and slowing his recovery.  Withdrawal on top of all the rest is not easy!  He's an atheist and he is in a lot of pain, no family except a grown daughter, and I've finally identified that pathetic look I keep seeing in his eyes that tears at my heart:  it's fear. 

Also, if you would be so kind, may I ask you to leave him your greetings and well-wishes, either in the comments or at my e-mail address:  anastasiatheo001 AT verizon DOT net or at  anastasiatheo001 AT gmail DOT com.  Either will work.  John isn't used to having people care for him, and it occurs to me that if I could bring him a whole sheaf of such notes, that would probably do him very great emotional and spiritual good. 

Thank you, and God reward your kindness!

Hi John,

Just to let you know that I'm thinking of you, and sending "get well" wishes to you as you recover from your surgery.
I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, and hope that Anastasia can give us further updates about your progress back to health.
Take care !
Love and best wishes from Elizabeth in Wales, UK.

Hi John

Sympathies on the surgery there. Hope you feel better soon. You know, Anastasia is like a sister to me ... maybe to you too?

Wishing you a speedy recovery!
