The website to which this article is linked is devoted to achieving Sustainability for the sake of all life on earth, and has a section entitled "Hug Spiritual Trees". Pastor Tim hugs them often, and his prayer for all of us on earth is posted there. Here is part of his message of yesterday for relay to Care2 friends: "My dear brother Greg, I am moved nearly to tears by your message. I deeply appreciate, more than I can tell you, that you and others would do a prayer-chain for myself and Jill and for the sake of all life on earth."

Thank you ALL for getting this together so quickly! I speak with Tim every morning, and he spoke nothing of this, so he must be crying with tears of JOY, knowing so many Love and Care for him. Tim and Jill are the kindest people! This will bring great HEALING to them, and I thank you again. If you read this "little bro", we have lots of things to talk about tomorrow morning!

Please do enter your li'l prayer for them on the Hug Spiritual Trees page, I'm sure it will be special for them. And just in case I don't reach him before you next speak to him, pls do convey gratitude from G & S for his prayer for them and all of us, and let him know I'll be calling.

I was going to go write some roaring and ferocious thing for a friend's blog, and all my "voice" can produce right now is a whisper.

Some of the most wonderful people I've met have been on Care2, thanks Gregory for doing this and for Pastor Tim for his loving kindness shown to others as well as for Jill who will need our strength while she deals with her own health issues in additon to being a support to Pastor Tim.

My comment left on SEN

This is the greatest gift we can give is our prayers for our Earth Mother. Without her none of us have a home on which to live. We are taught to not look at just what we do today, or how things will impact our life today, but how what I do today, will it impact those who will live 7 generations down the road.

The ancestors who lived upon the land of North America lived on it so gently that you will not find much in the way of them having been here. They left no large monuments as the Egyptians, there belief was to leave the land as pristine as they themselves had enjoyed it. Oh if we had only followed in their footsteps, our Earth Mother would be so clean and free of pollution. I'm sure we would of been using solar, wind, and other clean energy sources as well of our being in a rat race to gather more than we needed would never have happened.

We all need to learn from our mistakes, as Hugh stated the way many of the Countries people's are living is unsutainable. Our Mother has finite resources and we need to live in a way that regenerates the resources we have and that requires our thinking in another way than the way it is going now. Again, how will what I do, my Country does, will leave those who are here 7 generations from now. Will they even be able to live in 7th generations or will all be destroyed by the shortsightedness of the Leadership and the unwillingness of the masses to make their Leaders change the coarse of disrespect upon our environment we now see.

Thank you Gregory for the Honor you have given to me, I am so grateful that you continue to pass along the video above done by Oren Lyons of which I sent to you and other friends. I have much respect for Oren Lyons and his continued reaching out to the peoples of the world to open their eyes and most importantly their Hearts. When our Hearts are open we want to do better by those around us, and we want to live better upon our Earth, it is a flow of Being, and many Humans forget that they are also Beings.

It is an Honor to be mentioned on the same thread as such wonderful people that are above on the thread, many of you I know and am fortunate to have been allowed to meet by the blessing of Great Spirit. Thank you for your prayers FreeSpirit Running, all positive thoughts and prayers are always accepted in graditude.

Good luck Tim...Your cancer has not yet been diagnosed as positive?...And so I wish you well and a great life ahead. You have many years to go and I looked forward to sharing them with you, but you cut me off your mailing list so that is impossible.

If Jill will not accept you as you are (You and I know she won't) then move on and get a new life?

I wish you well old friend but I do not waste my time praying for anyone...God may move in mysterious ways but, let's face it. There is no God.

Your inner strength will get you through, and that is all you need.

You know I care for you so please accept that fact and rest easy in the knowledge that someone cares for you but does not waste his time praying to ?.

It is a tribute to Pastor Tim and all of you wonderfully caring and loving people that in just 4 hours -- at a time on a Friday when Care2 is usually quiet -- our Prayer Chain for Earth, All Life and Our Beloved Care2 Friend became the most noted and commented-on in World on Care2.

I hope that as the earth turns and we here in the USA enter hours of sleep, good people in waking hours will join here to share their thought of prayer, no matter their religious or spiritual beliefs, for here we are one WORLD, just as Pastor Tim and Jill would want for all of us.

My Beloved Friend Gregory: I'm so Honoured to be part of this Beautiful and Inspirational Chain of Love for our Mother Earth, for all Living Things, for our Beloved Friends, Pastor Tim and Jill, and even for our Beloved friend Spyke, who is saying that "there is no GOD", but I bet that if he finds himself in a problem, sadness, or losing a Beloved one, the first thing that he did, he is doing, and he will do, will be PRAYING AND ASKING FOR MERCY FROM GOD!
Much Love my Beloved Friends.

No Dalia, I have an open mind but I grew up and have thrown off my Sunday school, bible class, church brainwashing in favor of logic...I do care very much for Tim and wish him well...I wish him every success in his recovery.

Will put Pastor Tim on my prayer list and forward to my Prayers group.

May the Lord bless and keep you in his safe and gentle care Pastor Tim, goodness it is so hard to find out you are sick, but my heart is going out to you.

Free Spirit you are wise!

Gregory thank you so much for getting this out there, the fact that this was a forward proves to me that people do care about others and since I was brought up in a Lutheran Private School for 10 years my parents installed an outstanding belief in prayer.

The Lord works outstanding wonders for those that believe, may you have all of the POWER behind you from all of your friends on Care2 to take care of you and be healed with all of the Lord's Blessings. M

God Bless! Praying hard! Usually do that only for relatives and animals, but Pastor Tim, you are put on the list for healing!

My candle is lit~and will stay for better news. My deepest Blessings go out to dearest Tim and Jill. I know about back and neck pain. And I also know about cancer.
My deepest thanks Gregory for setting up the prayer chain. I will also include our Mother Earth, along with Tim and Jill in my prayer circles.

ALL WHO HAVE SHARED HERE, all who have done so below by noting, all who yet will, pls note:

I just read a prayer left on the "Hug Spiritual Trees" page by David (above on Friday at 6:43PM). David, I'm certain I speak for all when I say, HAD WE KNOWN, you would have been added from the outset with Pastor Tim and Jill to the purpose of our prayer for our mother earth and all her life. God has seen to it that you are added now, as you were from the beginning, for HERE and THERE we are all one and ever were and ever will be.

I need to talk to Suzanne by webcam before I retire -- a vigil for prayers on SEN is in order -- but first must offer something for all the wee ones in the world now or soon asleep, for being reminded of something long forgotten by something David said: "Now I lay me down to sleep....".

Tim and Jill, you know I am sending that beautiful energy in the act called prayer and many other things.

Love and peace, Hugh

Tim is someone who is the antithesis of the money loving,bigoted,unread type of so called Christian that over in Britain is mistakenly seen by some (who it could be said adopt a superficial view and are too quick to stereotype ..and perhaps I fell into that trap too sometimes in years gone by)as representative of US Christianity..Maybe if all beleivers were like Tim i'd be a follower myself.
My own view of American Christians has been enriched by knowing some fine Christians on this site..and none better than Tim who is a humanist,socialist and true believer in Jesus.
I can send you human warmth by the trainload from this side of The Atlantic..people like you represent all that is best about America .

Geef niet op MAAR GA op Zoek Naar sterven Schat.

Die kostbaarheid Advocate JE Juist datgene
Wat JE ALS JE hebt Nodig JE VerLoren voelt.
Je zult JE Sterker Gaan voelen.

Saturday April 17, 2010, 1:16 pm
So that Pastor Tim, Jill, David, James and others would always be able to find this where his own prayer for us is posted, I've entered a WITNESS comment bearing a link to this page. I've reproduced it below for the benefit of those here who do not visit the page themselves, and to share the thoughts I expressed there with all of you here:

WITNESS: In just the first 24 hours over 150 good Care2 people worldwide joined a Prayer Chain for Earth, All Life, Care2 Friends Pastor Tim, Jill, and Pastor David in the USA and James in England. They joined from Belgium, Montenegro, Australia, Finland, Sweden, Holland, India, Canada, France, the Phillipines and UK, Mexico, Pakistan, Israel, Palestine, Romania, Greece, the Dominican Republic, Cyprus, Germany, Bosnia, Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Indonesia.
Their religious and spiritual beliefs are as diverse as humanity's rainbow, but even those who say they do not pray found the common ground of compassion for all earth's life to join in peaceful sharing and witness. You may witness them here:
On this day I myself swing the sword of Excalibur with which I was honored and entrusted for having sought worldwide peace in the wake of Sept 11, a day I swore an oath witnessed by thousands I would never cease seeking a better world for all life. On this day I do not swing the sword "terrible and swift", but seeking God's mercy for the sake of all life. For on this day all of these good people have fulfilled a prayerful hope I expressed last year only to few closest to me:
"It makes me want to take Excalibur down from the wall and rush outside on this moonlit night, to give the great sword a mighty swing, the wondrous whooosh of her the butterfly effect released to the sky, her rippling rounding the world, blanketing the Chalice of Mother Earth and all life she births with the freshening of Excalibur's mighty Blade, the glint of moon streaking from him, as angels of love from the sparkle of our children's eyes. --Gregory, Christmas, 2009"
All of you are having that butterfly effect. You are sending angels of love rippling round the world, and surely your prayers and caring words and thoughts and acts are freshening the air of earth and the lives of those you send them to. Please do not respond to this comment. It would break my heart to see the lovely simplicity of this threaded prayer-chain broken.

Tim Redfern (581)
Saturday April 17, 2010, 2:16 pm
Gregory and Suzanne,
I really have no words right now,
but I'll give it a try.

To the 165 of you who have noted;
to the 146 of you who have left comments on this post,
you have mine and Jill's deepest heartfelt gratittude and appreciation.

It is my belief that prayer is the most powerful force in the universe
given to humanity.......a direct link between our hearts and
the heart of God our Father.

My beloved wife is sleeping at the moment, and has not yet had the chance
to read this thread, nor does she even know it exists.
Well, even I didn't know it existed until I spoke with my dear friend and sister
SuSanne Dawn late this morning, when she told me about it!
SuSanne, you are the most awesome Hippie Chick that Canada
has ever produced, and it's my honor and pleasure to be your "kid brother".

The vast majority of you fine people who have left comments and acknowledged
your prayers for me and my wife, I must admit, I don't know you, but I'd sure like to!
This thread, and the prayer chain at SEN proves to me that I am correct in my
belief that we are One Planet, One People, that we are ALL children of the same
God, children of the same Universe.

I feel the need to share a bit more personal information,
as long as I'm here.
Jill & I met here at Care2 in the summer of 2008.
In November of 2008, I wrote a blog about Christianity.......
the TRUE Christianity......which Jill read, and it was less
than a month later when she sent me a private message asking me to give her
s phone call. She wanted to talk about my blog.
We were on the phone that first time for close to 3 hours, if I'm remembering correctly.
I DO know that with that first conversation, I knew I'd met a "forever friend".
As 2008 became 2009, Jill & I began spending every evening on the phone,
and for one night, we were on the phone together for 9 hours!
By about this time last year, she & I had fallen in love, without ever
intending to. Honestly, it "just happened", and that's the most beautiful way
for it to be.

I was approved for disability in August of 2009, and quickly began to recieve
my "back-payments". Jill knew I was in a horrific living situation in Tennessee,
and by early October of 2009, she invited me to come to Missouri, and move in with her.
I did, and on Christmas night, I proposed, and she accepted.

With every new day, Jill & I fall in love with each other all over again,
and our love becomes stronger with each new day, because the center
and the foundation of our marraige is our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are both in desparately poor health, though I am somewhat stronger
and healthier than Jill is.
I mentioned to Gregory the Pain Management Clinic in North Kansas City which Jill & I
visited twice last week.. This past Thursday night, Jill decided that she wants to put off
her own treatment at the Pain Clinic until this lung cancer issue of mine is cleared up.
I objected, then she objected to MY objection!
The point is, I care more for her well-being than I do my own, and she cares more
for my well-being than she does her own. This is precisely how every marraige should be.

I'm very tired and in considerable pain right now.
I was at the local hospital at 9:30 this morning, where I consulted
with a rheumatologist, and then had 22 X-rays taken....................
no joke, my friends, 22 of them. It was the Whole Body Experience,
but this is how good and thorough and caring my doctors are being right now.
I AM going to get thru this, as will Jill, and it's going to be by the power, mercy and grace
of God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, and the prayers of our wonderful Care2
family, and likely tens of thousands of people all over the world that Jill & I do not even know.

I am honored and humbled by the immense outpouring of love and compassion from you fine folks,
and I know Jill will be too. In my 48 years of walking around on this rock, this is certainly a first
for me, and there are no words in the English language to fully convey the gratitude and love
I feel for you all.
Please know that you will be in our prayers, just as my beloved, precious wife & I are in yours.

Gregory, at your earliest convenience, PLEASE phone me, sir!
You have my number.
You and Suzanne also have my eternal gratitude......mine and Jill's.
I promise, this is going to make her weekend!

May the Peace, Love, Grace and Mercy
of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all,
now and always, and this is my prayer to you.

Romans 8:38-39,
which reads as follows:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The heartfelt love and prayers expressed by your many friends on care2 shows how you have been a beacon of light to many of us Tim. May your God have mercy on you, so that you can continue to spread love and light to those who you touch far and wide for much more time, starting from your family, friends and those from the care2 family.
When I read the various postings here, on so many topics, read some very "testy" replies, I am so amazed that there could be this depth of love and feelings... that have come from all on this is a shame that it takes bad news to bring out the deep deep love that has hardly been tapped within our membership. IF WE COULD ONLY BOTTLE IT, AND SEND IT TO EVERY CORNER OF OUR WORLD, our world would be a much better place.Tim, I join all on this posting, send love and healing to you, and those near and dear to you, Ken

Dear Pastor Tim and your beloved wife Jill. I just found out tonight about the prayer chain. I will pray to our Lord Jesus Christ. May his kindness and love and healing powers go directly to you and your wife.
May god Bless and watch over the both of you.

As I begin typing this post, it is 12:40 AM,
Sunday morning, in Missouri.

While I am deeply grateful for the prayers being
offered for myself and my precious wife Jill,
I must make a clarification on our personal situation
as a couple.

While I am no doubt a very sick man,
Jill is in worse shape than I am. She has had
a very bad day, suffering in tremendous pain,
both physical and emotional. Please allow me to explain:

Jill has suffered a very bad life. She has been wounded and scarred
by unimaginable trauma, both physical and emotional, her entire life.
She lives in constant pain, 24/7, which never ends, due mostly to
her insufficient doctor, who has had her on hydrocodone-based
pain meds for more than 10 years, pain meds which are no longer doing
her any good whatsoever. We are very close to getting her to see MY doctor,
who has treated me as every doctor in the world should treat every patient.

In my post above, I mentioned the Pain Clinic in North Kansas City
Whch we visited twice in this past week. Jill has with her a CD-ROM
of an MRI scan which was taken the Sunday before Easter. The Pain Climic
also did a large number of X-rays on Jill.
There is no part of her back and spine, from the base of her brain, to her tailbone,
which is not affected, and/or out of alignment.
Jill has suffers from tremendous migraines.
When she was 11 yrs. old, she was attacked by a boy who struck her in the back of the
neck with a baseball bat.
The X-rays of her cervical spine have shown that it is 48 mm and 155% out of alignment,
which explains the migraines from which she has suffered for years.
In her late teens, she was pushed backwards down a flight of stairs.
She has been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease.
She has discs that are bulging to various degrees.
Her lower spine shows signs of the degeneration already.
Her hips are badly out of alignment, and we both learned only this
past Thursday that her left leg is one-half inch shorter than her right,
and she is now wearing a heel lift in her left shoe to correct this problem.
Along with all of this, she has been worn down to a nub due to suffering
constant, ongoing, 24/7 chronic pain for too many years.
She has severe and advanced Fibromyakgia.
She suffers from sleep disturbances and nightmares,
often wakes in tears after having gotten insufficient, non-regenerative
and unrestful sleep.
Jill also suffers from a form of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) which is
worse than some cases seen in combat veterans.
I've told you all that to tell you this:

It would be my personal preference that these prayers
be directed toward Jill rather than myself.
In comparison to my beloved wife, I have a case of the sniffles.
Jill needs the prayers far more than I do,.
I really don't want to come across sounding like an ingrate,
but Jill is in far more need of prayer than I am.
So, while I (of course) appreciate the prayers for myself,
my wife is in much greater need of prayer than I am.

I will close this post with a quote from a song by Steven Curtis Chapman,
and this is my prayer to all of you, and to all the world:

"But in my mind's eye I can see a place
where Your Glory fills every empty space,
all the cancer is gone
every mouth is fed,
And there's no one left in the orphan's bed.
Every lonely heart finds their one true love,
and there's no more goodbye
and no more not enough
and there's no more enemy.
No more."

Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

Pastor Tim and Jill! What can I say that hasn't been said already!?!? Nothing! But I want you both to know that in getting all of us at Care2 to pray, you've sent an SOS to Jesus to look over you two and keep you in the palm of His hands. Of this I'm sure. My prayer is for you two to not suffer any pain, be relieved of whatever it is that you're ailing of...and be here on Care2 and keep us together! I love this prayer-chain and will keep my prayers going. Wow! Look at the number of people here in whose thoughts and prayers you are present!
God Bless you two with strength, courage and His own Canopy-Hands over your heads. I also want to say that I love everyone here! This is positive energy galore! I've noted and thanks to Tierney!

Saturday 17th @11:23p.m where Pastor Tim writes a comment just proves to me, though do not know either Partor Tim or Jim that he is very special. He asks more for Jill in these prayers than himself.

What greater love has a man...I am deeply moved. Couldn't sleep and you two amoung so many others were on my mind that need our prayers.

Originally, I had only put you Pastor Tim on my request for the Church Prayer list, but the other two I am involved with did, since today is Sunday, I will also request that Jill be relieved of some of her horrible pain.

Know that you are watched over by God and are in his loving care. Blessings!

My humble apologies to Jill. I commented before I finished reading through the posts so was unaware of what you have been enduring until just now. My thoughts are with you also as you and Tim navigate through all this suffering together. I am moved to tears just hearing about how you have had to cope with the continuous pain. With much love, I wish you both well.

A little known fact for some of those that like to ruin a thread with their own stupidity, Smoking an "Herb" for medicinal purposes has nothing to do with sending out good vibes to others in the world that are need.

Sending good vibes out to ALL those that are in need, stupid is as stupid does, need to blessed.

Spread the love, not the hate people, thank you!

I agree, FreeSpirit Running. I've smoked my share of herbs over the years and there's nothing wrong with it. The way the laws here in California (it's on our ballot!) and other states are moving toward legalization, it appears Tim was way ahead of his time. I sincerely hope Jill is using "herbs" now for pain management, and Tim to calm his nerves during this trying period. The herbs are needed now moreso than any other time. I'm so glad Non S mentioned this so I would have this opportunity to encourage using herbs for pain.

Rather than slight Tim in the eyes of those who love him, it has endeared us to him even more.

Ah, ask and the Universe provides...

To the person who wanted to comment on this "PRAYER CHAIN OF HOPE" and wrote a negative comment, I feel sorry for you!

This is a PRAYER CHAIN and for whatever reason that someone did get horrid cancer, it DOES NOT matter.

Peace Pastor Tim, Jill, David and James.

No negative thoughts coming from ALL of us here at Care2, one person is not the norm and we all there is one in a group!

My uncle had to smoke in 1974 when it was so hidden for pain and it was the only way he could get through his treatment.

PRAYERS/PEACE and Understanding! xx Blessings!

Prayers and expressions of love and care are now spreading as Mother Earth turns, for Pastor Tim, Jill, Pastor David, James, Claire, any suffering in silence who are joined. Above at 11:23 Care2 Time, Pastor Tim has appealed for a re-direct of our prayers from he to she. All shall do as they elect, God and Mother Earth will smile, and we will be one here no matter. Speaking for myself alone, solution comes easily. Pray for all while yet again and again for Jill, honoring the love of Pastor Tim's greater than this no man has.

while i agree with spyke that i don't turn to god in crisis ( a common christian misconception), when people ask me to pray, i do it. nobody knows the truth. if there is a god, surely pastor tim and jill deserve help. even the most aggressive cancer with the worst odds of survival has been beaten by someone. you have to believe you are that 1%. same with jill. somebody out there has gone through the exact same thing and has now recovered. you just have to keep pursuing the solution. best wishes.

It has taken me a day to digest the info I got yesterday...Pastor Tim has helped here and behind the scenes, and has been so selfless (as he has shown by his posts here!). Religious or not, there is so much love and hope available. Tim, you don't have to worry that you will be slighting those you love by getting more prayers. It's like watering a flower-it grows and blooms, and we all enjoy its' beauty. You are a strong flower! Peace.

Sunday April 18, 2010, 12:24 pm
Dear Tim,

I understand what you asked and I think you are awesome :) Still I can say that my prayers for you didn't take anything away from my prayers for Jill... I am not a very religious person but I do believe in positive thoughts and prayers... To me what matters is the sincerity, the hope and love in them, rather than the amount or quantity... However by telling us what Jill has had to face, you help us in understanding better what we must hope and pray for. Also you seem to be such a source of support and love for Jill that praying for you is another way of praying for her. May Jill heal soon from the pain or at least feel much much much better!

Yes keep Jill away from doctors who are incompetent or misguided. Also doing your own research may help... not to risk dangerous things but to be well informed.

For example you may want to read research about Vitamin D and how taking certain (very large) amounts of it can make a significant difference even in serious health issues including some forms of cancer and fibromyalgia. And how this is more or less kept a secret as it goes against Big Pharma. But there is scientific data on this and specific treatments based on this.

In another field but not entirely unrelated, I viewed an online documentary yesterday which l think is a must...

Making A Killing -The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging:
A Documentary – Video
Documentary rips the mask off psychotropic drugging and exposes a brutal but well-entrenched money-making machine.

That's all I'll say as I don't want to distract from the issue of this thread. It's just that it shows how vulnerable we are when greed takes control of science. And unfortunately this goes on with many other types of medication too, and many vaccines. So we have to try and protect ourselves by informing us about the truth the best we can.

Prayers and loving, caring and positive thoughts continue for both of you with all my heart.

Please say hello to Jill for me from Greece, and many get well to her and to you. Stay strong and keep your faith strong as always, dear Tim!!

Sunday April 18, 2010, 12:25 pm
thanks for the formard Marion and Dalia. Tim and I had been friends for a long time. But sometimes when things get tense,friendships get damaged and friends go in different directions. Never thinking that this time may the last. I am here to say Tim my thoughts and prayers are with you and your wfe. And with all this positive energy that is going your way,brigther days are going your way.

In response to Brigitte T. - you are correct about Big Pharma. I would go a step further and state that Big Pharma and food manufacturers claim Vitamin D and others but they manufacture and insert synthetic vitamins which our bodies cannot assimilate. Big Pharma is smart - they have tapped into the vitamin/supplement industry so we must also be cautious about the brands we purchase.

Non S: Words have power and energy as do thoughts and emotions.

On the eve of 9/11, my personal prayer is that I:

Never take a single moment for granted;
Never miss an opportunity to let those I love know how I feel, even when it is not reciprocated;
Never forget to smile amidst my tears;
Never be too busy to help someone, whether friend or stranger;
Never pass by a mountain without taking note of its majesty;
Never rise in the morning without thanking God for another day to live and love;
Never lose wonder in a rainbow;
Never let the sun set on my anger;
Never deafen to the sweet trill of a bird;
Never deny forgiveness;
Never become so independent that I cannot ask for help;
Never assume the gift of freedom;
Never grow so stubborn that I cannot apologize for hurting another;
Never believe that I have learned all I can;
Never become so proud that I become my only friend;
Never own so much that I want more than I need;
Never grow so weary that I cease to fight;
Never become so numb that I lose compassion;
Never forfeit hope for defeat;
Never trade love for money;
Never hang my head so low that I forget I am an heir to the Kingdom.

I was blessed to speak with Pastor Tim shortly ago. I choked several times, while he was selflessly strong throughout. He spoke of the profound joy he and Jill are experiencing despite their trial, over the outpouring of prayers, love and caring support you all are sending them and others and Mother Earth around the world, here and on SEN via this Prayer Chain, where all are one, and for all the right and selfless reasons.

I am neither a religious practioner nor a poet but hear me from From Eccl: 11
"You have cast your bread much upon the waters and you shall find more: You have given the portion of your spirit regardless of where the tree falls; you have sown of your good humor without waiting for the weather; "
May all the cells of your bodies come together and greet in healing: may they yet rejoice all life is One: as you as a couple has stayed together may all the organs know each other as an altogether:

It has not yet sunk in for either of us,
to know that there are tens of thousands of people
on every continent except Antarctica who are praying
for us. Again, there are no words in the English language
to tell you all what this means to us.
We give the thanks and glory to God our Father,
and our Lord Jesus Christ.

As Gregory mentioned, he and I had a womderful conversation
this afternoon.
Gregory, once again, brother, we thank you very much for calling.
As I told him, I feel that Jill is far more deserving of these prayers
than I am. She really is far worse off than I am.
I'm just me.
I am a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, considering myself to
be a farmer, scattering seed, and hoping some of it lands on good ground.
I've been a member of Care2 for almost 3 years, and God has blessed me
with the best friends on the planet.
Now, in this thread, Jill & I are finding that we have far more friends
than we ever could have imagined.

Many of you who have contributed to this thread know Jill, and you
have known her longer than you have known me. She has not been
participating at Care2 for perhaps the last year as her pain has increased,
and her functionality has decreased. She had been on Facebook for awhile, but
is now no longer able to do that anymore, because it has become too much like work.
We are both hoping and praying the day will come, sooner rather than later,
when she can rejoin this Beloved Commmunity. amd be the participant she once was.

Again, I would beg of you all, to direct your prayers to God
more for Jill than for myself. She is in far greater need of them than
I am.

The outpouring of Love, Peace, Compassion
and Understanding which we have recieved in
this thread is simply overwhelming.

I also want everyone to know that we are printing this
thread, we will treasure it forever, and we will keep it in
a very special place where we know nothing will happen to it.
In the years to come, when trials such as the one we are in now
may come again, we will be able to pull out these many pages,
read them again, and have our faith bolstered and renewed
by knowing how many people, many of them total strangers,
have stepped forward to assist us in this time of great need.

To Non S.:
In the immortal words of Oliver Hardy............
I have nothing to say.

May God our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ
pour out upon you all Their Love, Peace, Grace
and Mercy, now and always.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

Pastor Tim & Jill Redfern

I would just like to let everyone know that any writings or poems I post on Care2 is for your use as the Spirit leads or as you desire to share.

Though I wrote them, they are not meant for me to hide or covet. I am simply the vessel that God uses to pour the words into

For Frank - and for anyone else here or elsewhere who has shared a request for prayers for someone who is in need... I give you all my prayers, love and energy, my strength, compassion and courage during these difficult times and those you may yet face in the unknown ahead.

To share with all here who have not been to the SEN page or maybe you have been and with all the lovely sharing, caring words, may have missed seeing it... I share with you here my comment and ask you all to know that it is for all who need strength and support:

Pastor Tim & Jill, you’re two very special people touching so many hearts with love and caring. I give you all my prayers, love and energy, my strength, compassion and courage during these difficult times and those you may yet face in the unknown ahead. It’s not often that someone can truly know the depths they touch a heart or someone’s life, but when those special people come along you remember them for a lifetime. As you’ve touched so many, we give of ourselves to you and share with you in this journey, we’re all with you.

As Ghandi said, “Where there is love there is life.” There is much love here. Everyone commenting, sharing, and reading ~ you’re all very special people. Together we share our strength and hope for the future.

~ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

This is absolutely awesome in many, many ways. Tim and Jill, your own goodness and love has moved us all to join in this outpouring of spiritual energy and light to lift you and uphold you and move The One Spirit through your bodies deeply and with quiet but awesome power. It is no wonder that you have been able to rejoice in the time of great pain and trouble. I thank you for your honest sharing of Jill's history of pain because too few people have the trust to open their hearts to give people the privelege of knowing what to ask the Divine to help with. I want to remind you of something you already know Tim. There's plenty for both of you :) The flood of Spirit washing over and through you both will accomplish its task, using doctors and healers on its way. Just relax and feel all the love and accept whatever is to be accepted my brother and sister, whether it is miraculous healing as we all hope, or the miracle of accepting that non-healing too has a purpose. Already this amazing event of oneness of purpose, of deeply felt community, is a better reason to be horribly ill than most of us can claim. Sorry, perhaps I'm showing my eccentric side there but I know you know what I'm on about. May you continue to swim in a sea of Holy power. I love you both.

Tim Redfern (581)
Monday April 19, 2010, 10:12 am
Hugh, my dear brother,
go ahead and be eccentric.......
I am too!, and I've always been
drawn to eccentric, like-minded spirits.
Jill and I love you, too.

You mention "the miracle of accepting non-healing".
My late mother passed into Glory in March 2007.
For the last 40 years of her life, she was in dreadfully
poor health, roughly the same amount of pain that Jill
is in, and she was bedridden for the last several years
of her life.
Mom was a Systemic Lupus patient for the last 33 years of her life.
Her physical pain was never really brought under full control, but
she was a woman of enormous faith, full of the Love of God and
her Lord Jesus Christ, and a tremendous inspiration to all who knew her.
Mom almost lost her faith in the 1970's, (soon after she was diagnosed with
Lupus), due to Fundamentalist, Legalist-minded "Christians" who told her she
was not being healed (by God) because she had "unconfessed sin" in her
life. It took the ministry of a brilliant Bible scholar in Los Angeles, the late
Dr. Gene Scott, to restore Mom's faith in Jesus Christ, and eventually enable her
to accept "that non-healing too has a purpose".

I have long-since surrendered my life to Jesus Christ.
It is a matter of "letting go of the steering wheel", and
sometimes putting one's hands over one's eyes, too,
Whatever God my Father and my Lord Jesus Christ
have willed for my life is
going to be perfect, because God's will is perfect, and His timing
is perfect. If non-healing is a part of His will, then there will be a reason
why He wills for me to be NOT healed, and what's most important is that
His reason for that non-healing will be for His praise and His glory
............and that's just fine with me.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.

ITim and Jill, I read this yesterday, and I am honored and happy to be part of such a big, compassionate group of people. I have often read and liked your comments on news stories, Tim. I didn't realize that Jill is the same person as the lovely Jillyann on my Care2 friends list. We had just been friends for a short time when she seemed to disappear. Now I know the whole story. Times as hard as these are so painful, but are only a bat of an eye in the context of eternity. When I read this last night, I just couldn't even find words to add, because everyone seemed to have just about said it all. I know there is a Higher Power, but as humans we are just very limited in our understanding of this world. Rest assured you two will stay on my mind, and I am visualizing you both enveloped in a protective cocoon of love and light, without limit. Judy C.

Little bro~Tim and my sister Ms. Jill. I had no idea you were actually posting on this site! Even though we speak daily {just spoke over 90 minutes.wink!!}, I would have truly revisited to send my prayers and blessing to you both! Even though I've been offline for almost a week, I would have surely made myself get out of bed to let you see in print how much love and how many prayers I have for you both. This AMAZING Prayer Chain that Gregory,Suzanne,Sheryl,Hugh,Dalia started for you! {I THINK that is who started this, if I have forgotten someone, please understand}. I am overwhelmed with the love and prayers {religious, or non religious} that are reaching far and wide for you and Ms. Jill, as you now know how many truly care about you. I know how terribly sad you were, that when you sent your original message to the first 25 of your closest friends {of 560}, that only four or five "friends" responded to you! No, you didn't have to say it broke your Heart, I knew! It would break anyone's HEART! Then, you sent out to more, and got the same. Then you sent a personal message with another problem, and received a horrible response! God bless, the Great Spirit bless, the good thoughts and good wishes bless, every spiritual and God of every Religion bless, every prayer and "well wish" is reaching far and wide into the Universe. Dear Tim please put yourself on the Prayer Chains that you put me on...yes even the Vatican...that you have so selfishless done for me! When we spoke earlier I didn't connect the fact how excited and appreciative you were of the Prayer Chain. I thought you just looked at it, and weren't able to post. I am so happy you get to go here daily, and now I understand. BLESS YOU BOTH! All my love and prayers to every God, lil sis~SuSanne

if it's any consolation, i get very few responses to requests as well. i don't think it's that people don't care. i think care2 can be completely overwhelming. so much to read; so little time. i sent an introduction to james carpenter's wife, anita. she's probably too busy to read it now, but wouldn't it be nice if she found a bunch of friend requests in her inbox. just a thought. she only has 4 friends since she signed up a couple of days ago.

We are indeed sorry to hear of yours and your wife's illnesses. We send our sincerest good wishes and prayers for healing to be given to you both - in whatever form He thinks best.

There is an association in West Virginia called the Association for Research and Enlightenment(A.R.E) - this was started decades ago by the man known as The Sleeping Prophet - Edgar Cayce. The association is for non-profit and holds testimonies of healing for around 14,000 people. I. myself have received positive help from this group. It may be worth considering. God Bless.

You are SO right Catherine.....the ammount of mail in ones mailbox DAILY is INDEED overwhelming!....& although many are MENTALLY & PRAYERFULLY noted & diligently carried by us throughout each day!.....the personal response needed......& left on file for often lost in the daily influx of mail!
But I beieve that thoughts are living things.......but wether by thought word or deed....we ALL have an equal capacity for good or bad.....negativity or it what you wish........& the way you mostly excersize it will beome the dominent factor in your own life......& directly or indirectly affect the lives of those you come in contact with!
We may not be responsible for the attitude of those we come in contact with.....but we ARE responsible for our own REACTION to it!
Attitudes create Attmosphere!........the question is.......are you happy with the attitude that you are attempting to create?
Believe me Hugh M when I say I truly get your drift!......Eccentric is just a word some people use to explain away the fact that they have ommitted to ask WHY you feel as you do!
To Frank David James & no doubt many others who has been drawn into this link......everything that happens has a purpose......If when you see the awsome might of nature.......such as the volcanic erruption that currently is in the news......when you see the HUGE billows being constantly blown into the attmosphere.....visualise it as representing the love & healing being sent your way via this link....& many other unseen ones......I know thats what comes to my mind along with your names....including those of dear Tim & jil....when I see it!
& James.....please remember that "Tomorrow is promised to non-one"....but today is the "present"...we ALL have the opportunity to "share & care" in!......I'm praying that any pain or discomfort is eased for you @ this you can truly take part in the sharing caring & reflection that this chain has evoked in us all!
Sorry I'm unable to comply with your earnest wish P to me you & your beloved are "as one".....wrapped & encompassed in a bubble of love healing & hope.....along with the pets that I know will give you the strength & courage to carry on viewing each days responibilities as a "CHALLENGE" to your opposed to a threat to your welbeing!
Love & blessings to all concerned from Jay Cosbab!

We have just learned another gift to mankind and beloved Care2 friend to many including me, LONE WOLF, was just tranfered from life-support hospitalization to another hospital in Ohio. He is now added to our Prayer Chain and in that way at the very least, Lone Wolf is not alone. Further 12 more of my own family who are not Care2 members have messaged they are enjoined to our Prayer Chain.

TO MY OWN WONDERFUL FRIENDS: I am at present in Arizona searching for a place to live when I surrender my home in CT later this year or early next year. I logged on using friend's computer to send green stars and so on, and discovered all my messages had been deleted, my friend list severed, and the contents of my profile removed. I suspect this is a punishment administered by Care2 for my having made an appeal for Pastor Tim's Jill via a message to friends, but I do not know the facts of the matter, for I find no notification from Care2. One part of me wants to raise a voice thundering in protest against an inhumane cruelty, while another feels the right thing to do is suffer it quietly, grateful no man can sever spiritual bond made here in decency and selfless compassion. Perhaps it is not for me to judge, but God and all of you. At present I am helpless to do anything else than say I may be cast out (I do not know whether this comment will be deleted), but I am not one outcast from compassion for life including humankind. I am blessed and so are we all, for so long as this prayer chain lives in your hearts and minds.

Thanks so much Gregory for keeping us informed about our members and friends. I had heard about James C but had not heard this about Lone Wolf. My thoughts will be with all of these members of care2.

My best to you too as you find a better life for yourself and your family out there is Arizona.

Gregory Hilbert (422)
Wednesday April 21, 2010, 8:57 am
I was relieved to discover just now my friends list etc reinstated, if in fact it was temporarily severed. Perhaps an illusion of a programming glitch arising from my use of friend's computer. In any case, for benefit of those who do not know Lone Wolf for whom we now also pray, he has long been a steady voice raised peacefully on Care2 seeking justice for the sake of Indigenous people. He is a Great Giver.

Good to hear from you Gregory and that you made it out to AZ safely. I trust all is going well for you out there.

Terry aka Lone Wolf has been a tireless advocate for the North American Indian and it has been an Honor to have him among my list of friends. I have missed him and of coarse he will be in my prayers and thoughts.

I have known of another woman, a Care2 friend of mine that has informed me of a return of her breast cancer which has now spread into her bones. She has faced this news with great dignity and strength and has informed me she will still do what she can for the animals until her last once of energy is gone. As I do not want to evade her privacy I will just list her as Linda, a very sweet and kind woman. Great Spirit knows of whom I speak and so when you add the name Linda, Great Spirit will know of whom you pray.

Let's keep our Dusty also in your prayers, she has recently been told she has cancer as well and as she put out a general letter to this I feel free to add her on here with the name most are familiar with. Another brave woman who has had more than her share of heartache, a Warrior not only for the animals, the American Indian of whom she help with sending heaters to this winter, but also served in the military and wounded in her service. So keep her also in your prayers that she can overcome this newest challenge in her life.

Sheryl G (359)

Forgive me, but it goes without saying that both Jill and Pastor Tim are still in my continued prayers. May Jill be relieved of some of this pain she is suffering from both physically and emotionally. I hope she finds a good Dr. that can assist her with that. Pastor Tim, I know you have great Trust in Great Spirit, so I will pray for you to stay strong for Jill and that whichever road Great Spirit leads you down that you are treated with dignity by the Caregivers and kept free of physical pain each step of the way.

Thanks for the heads up on Lone Wolf, Gregory. I had no idea.

Gregory Hilbert (422)
Wednesday April 21, 2010, 11:34 am
As dear friends above have said so well and kindly, as our prayer chain progresses it gives rise to learning of others among the many on earth beloved and deserving of our prayers and so added to our prayers. Today alone Lone Wolf, Dusty, and Linda are added to those before both named and silently enjoined. All are free to add any person, and to share in this outpouring of compassion for Mother Earth and one another.

Yes, each life is precious. Prayers goes out for Pastor Tim & any others that are at Care2 that may have a life threatening issue. Prayer does move the heart of the Father. Just because a diagnosis is given, does NOT mean you have to give-in to it.

I am so sorry to hear this news. But I am glad he was allowed to leave this earth peacefully on the wings of angels. I was at a Butterfly Festival on Saturday celebrating one of God's wonders. It was a very peaceful day with very mellow people. Everyone one was having a good time. And the children were amazed as they were trying to feed the butterflies.

in case anybody hasn't heard the good news, lone wolf is back and feeling well enough to post the news again!

Lone Wolf is back indeed, and who can doubt your prayers and caring helped!
Added to the Prayer Chain today is a Care2 friend of Henriette and others, Nick, who entered a hospital today for open-heart surgery. May he recover and thrive.
Also added to the Prayer Chain today is a friend of Care2 friend Ian, who must remain Anonymous but who is suffering a terminal illness in deplorable circumstances and has young children, and may we also say Ian himself, not because he requests them but because among his own trials is the pain of being unable to do more for his friend. May our prayers comfort him also, and those of ALL Care2 friends suffering in silence, whether or not known to others.

Henriette is such an extraordinary giver that I quickly added Nick without realizing he was the Nick H who is Care2 friend to me and over 1,000 others. Surely this good and kind man will know the comfort of your positive thoughts and prayers.

Henriette Matthijssen (154)

Just to let every one know that my friend Nick H. & a friend to so many of you, is due for open heart surgery & will also need all our prayers for a full recovery! I have lit a candle for him as well as for Pastor Tim & Jill for God's healing hands to restore health so that they can rejoin all friends who care so deeply for them all! Thanks.
Here is the link to light your candle!

My thoughts and prayers go out to my dear friend Nick who has been a blessing to me and so many others here. He has a kind heart and always finds the time to uplift others with his thoughtful messages. My thoughts and prayers also go out to my new friend Ian and his friend. Ian has a kind heart as well and thinks of others before himself. My continued thoughts and prayers for Tim and Jill. I have lit candles for them all.

Henriette ~ Thank you so much for letting us know about Nick. And are a living angel for keeping this thread alive for our friends who needs us right now. Blessings to you both.

Hi Gregory,
Thanks so much for taking the time to keep us posted about Pastor Tim & Jill, not to mention our good, mutual friend Lone Wolf. I will add Terry to my prayer list. Remember, as long as there is life, there is always hope. I wish all of you a wonderful weekend.

To our dear friends and loved ones,
an update on my beloved wife and myself:

8 days ago, Jill was dropped as a patient by her primary care physician of 8 years,
due to the fact that this doctor now feels that Jill's
"condition as a patient has gone beyond my ability to treat (her)."
This doctor had been giving her inadequate, substandard, negligent care for 8 years,
but due to Jill's problems with money and insurance, this doctor was her only option.
We've gotten the insurance problem straightened out, and Jill is about to see a range of
specialists who will treat her for problems (severe problems) both physical and emotional.
It's become a blessing in disquise that this doctor "fired" her as a patient;
Now, we can move on to get my precious lady the genuine care she needs.

I'm doing well, and I can't (and won't) complain.
This past Monday morning, I saw a surgeon who has identified the type of cancer I have.
It is an adrenal adenoma, and the surgeon assures me they are 90-some percent benign,
and relatively common for a 48 year old man, which I am.
All the same, he says, a biopsy is "highly recommended", and he didn't seem to be in any great
rush to get the biopsy done. He is doing blood and urine tests on me, and the biopsy will be scheduled,
likely at the University of Kansas Medical Center, probably sometime in late May or early June.

It is FAR more important to me that Jill recieves the medical care she needs before I recieve what
I need, as her needs and conditions are far worse and more urgent than mine. As the timing of everything
has worked out, it appears that this is exactly how things will progress.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

i would like to add josephia t. (who is actually in this thread). she is a tireless animal activist with a small rescue in indonesia. she has been hospitalized with typhoid, mild liver failure, ulcers in her intestines, and is on an i.v., unable to hold down food or water. and, if that isn't bad enough, we all sent donations for surgery for her cats and paypal froze her account for 180 days due to 'unusual activity'. when it rains, it pours... and always on the wrong people.

Gregory Hilbert (422)
Friday May 7, 2010, 8:13 pm
Catherine, I was saddened to learn of Josephia's condition. I remember feeling guilty sending a pitifully small amount, such a kind and selfless person, running her little rescue shelter like Mother Teresa, a shelter not small if you were one of those animals she rescued. May our prayers serve her as well.

Gregory, Thank you so much for adding Dusty to this wonderful prayer list.I hope with all my heart that God grants Dusty the strength to cope with the massive health problems facing her,and that someone will be there to help her cope.My thoughts & prayers are also with josephia too for her speedy recovery,and for all who are troubled,suffering,lonely,or in any unfortunate circumstances..God be with them. Big hug to all the wonderful people on care2....NOW GO HAVE A GOOOOD DAY.

Barbara K messaged today:
Hi, my friends, today I talked to Nick Hardy (Nick H), Care2 friend to over 1100 people. He requested that I send this update to all my friends and ask that you forward it to all your friends, or check out some names from Nick's friends to send it to. He is in good spirits. However, still in the hospital as they are still trying to stablize his heart so they can run tests to make a diagnosis. They believe he has a blockage, but unable to get his heart stable, to see where the blockage is. He will contact me again with an update at a future date and I'll send out another update. He is missing care2 and all his friends very much. Please keep him in your prayers for a full recovery.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior,Amen

I just came to know that our friend Susanne T is in much pain and is under medical treatment. I believe in prayers as they have great strength and power to heal. As I pray for my loving sister, I sincerely request you all to pray for at least 1 min from your valuable time for my sister's good health. I shall remain grateful to you all. One God, One Family.

Pastor Dave M has messaged that his liver has shown no change and that's good news for now. However he asks that friend Kristy be added to the group's prayers for peace and guidance. He expressed a wish that we all keep up the great work we do, and said he keeps all of us in his own prayers.

All, please know you are free to enter requests for prayers or compassionate wishes here for any life on earth in need of them. I am happy and blessed to enter them for you, but please feel no reluctance to do so yourself and remember that any and all religious and spiritual belief systems are honored here.

At this time I feel compelled to ask prayers for the families of those killed in the Gulf oil rig explosion, and both prayers and other action for the people and animal life yet to suffer its consequences. May God and you have the mercy denied them by the men whose greed did not.

a little good news from josephia (as relayed by ekeim t.):
very good news, sent by josie HERSELF (fragments of her message to me) : "I am a lot better. The i.v (the needle they put into my vein to give medicine, fluid, infusion etc) has been off and hopefully I can be strong enough to get out of the hospital this week. True that the hospital fee made my head spin, but I will figure out how to pay it. There's must be some way. I believe nothing in this world is a coincidence, and therefore, if God put me into this, He will get me out of it. The doctor didn't want me to go back to work just yet until my jaundice is completely off, but I never intent to back down on nursing my refugees once I get home. Spending the entire 2 weeks at the hospital doing nothing is excrucitating, and I am suffering everytime I remember my cats. They are part of me, and being away from them is the worst torture possible."

The Buddha's Teaching on Loving Kindness

This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in saftey,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!
Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

i live by this teaching... i hope all who read it, feel it...

I send waves of spiritual and physical strength from the ocean of life to our dear friends, Pastor Tim and Jill. May the pain experienced open your inner peace and light for those things most important in life!

With Love, Stephen

I have expressed my condolences to Kit on her page, but I will also leave a remark here should she read it. I lost my husband to cancer, he fought a brave battle for 5 years, with two types of cancer, and he was only 57 and I had just turned 50.
I can't even begin to pass across with words the deep emptiness and void that his journey to the Spirit World left in my life. I was left with an aching pain so deep in my "Being" that I actually had physical pain in my body from this emotional pain. I saw no future, only darkness, for I couldn't imagine a life without him in it, for he was the love of my life for 22 years, and I still had two teenagers to raise without their Father and they too were in grief.
The loss of one family member will affect each person that was attached to them, but spouse to spouse, that is a deep deep pain a major loss that until you experience as a widow or widower you just have no true understanding. I always felt compassion to someone who lost a spouse, knew it wasn't easy on them, but I had no actual idea of how truly hard it is until it happened to me. I don't want anyone to join this club of widowhood to understand.
So Kit, if you read this, I realize there is little I can do for you at this time, but I do have an understanding, my own heart aches for you that you also must experience this pain. Even my beloved Wayne felt compassion for me, and he was the one dying, for he said, "once this is over my pain ends, but you must live alone and your pain does not stop, I just pray for you that you will find a way to endure." He also said, "you have the harder road in this, for if the moccasin was on the other foot, I don't believe I could withstand the pain of seeing you like this and knowing I'd have to live life without you, it would be too hard, this is easy compared to what you are facing."
Take it a day at a time Kit, know if you need to talk contact me.

I'am not really a believer, but some "fluid" is passing through your souls, reaching mine too. A very nice, peaceful experience ...
I don't know Pastor Tim, nor the others who need help. My thoughts are with them.
Thank you, again, Sioux, for showing me this way ...

My prayers and deepest condolences are with Kit
and her family at this time of tragic loss and deep pain.
Though I have never been married, and still am not,
I can only imagine the pain involved.
Thank you, Gregory, my friend, for taking the time
to update this chain.

I would kindly ask that all continue to pray for Jill,
even though she and I are no longer together.
She is a dear, sweet lady whom I will always love,
and she is in need of great relief from all her pain.

May God bless and keep you all.

Thank you Pastor Tim for your renewal and what I will call your blessing of the addition of the link of prayers for Kit to this chain, this chain that having commenced can never be broken nor lose its power. Entries since Sept 26 2010 at 5:37PM by Kathy, Cher, Sioux, Poppy, Ness, Stephen, Dandelion, Charmaine, Luciana and yourself are testimony to that. Stephen, I thank you for your kind words, but I am only among the lightning rods who too often roars the lion -- would that I'd given as much of my warrior life to the PEACE-GIVING light that a loving man such as you has shed on this world, or for that matter the patient virtue that Kit so often sheds, or the sheer wisdom of Dandelion or gentle kindness of Hugh. Moreover there would be no moments of peace in green pastures for the likes of me, not on this earth at least, were it not for ALL the caring and gentle lambs above. They stand for all I cannot silently bear to see led to suffering or slaughter, and yet see how selflesslessly they stand!

I am sorry if this comes out twice but I just wrote it and Care2 sent it to who knows where. Ok, I'll try again.

I was just informed by Dolores, more commonly known as Blu AbbeyCat, that her brother, Robert Boba Fisher, has just passed away. She shared a piece of trivia about her brother that he had the 2nd largest Star Wars collection in the world. The clip to the youtube video about her brothers collection can be seen by putting his full name into the youtube search engine. Let us send prayers or how you observe to Dolores and her family during this difficult time.

Some people spend their lives, do no more than than only
sit on their behinds, who take and give little at all.
In time they find they have few friends and are lonely
and find they have no one to call on, when they fall.
Some people spend their lives working very long hours,
and give little of themselves to family and friends.
They find that all the money and power this means little
when all goes pear shaped, when there is no one to call friend.
Rev Tim and his good Lady Jill, were always there and gave more
guidance and assistance to their friends on care2 , and we hope always will.
Your fingerprints will always remain on many hearts for evermore.
Great Spirit above, beam down your healing Love to our good Friends Tim & JILL.
Also Great Spirit far above, send healing & help – may it be your wish
that all those Good people on care2, who are suffering from health,
and at the hands of the unscrupulous,greedy & the selfish.
May you smile & bring comfort and care to family, friend and even a little weath.
Great Spirit far above, please come close to us all,
I thank you in anticipation of your Love and Grace,

Sorry folks, but life seems to get busier as I get older, so have not been on care2 too much lately.There's a lot of loving folk in here...keep up the good work....K
Hugs to all.
