Stuff Hitting the Fan

Ever since Easter when I shared at church, stuff has been hitting the fan—and lots of it. It’s been piles of one thing after the other for a week and a half straight. Everything from a flood that ruined a bunch of my students’ clay projects, to hornets and tons of freaky crickets (the kind that play dead, jump eight feet, and can swim while being flushed down a toilet) in my house, to piles of very hard heavy plastic cafeteria trays falling on my kneecap, to random physical pains that I haven't had for a long time, to.... etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc.

So please pray for the ability to stay flexible and resilient and gracious and all of those nice things.... I thought it would calm down after a while but it hasn’t yet.

Also, I have an appointment on Friday, April 23 to get this piece of junk under my right arm snipped out, so please pray for that too. I’m not worried about the surgery itself but the medical process will be protracted and time consuming and tiring.... I guess I'll need to heal afterward too.

Thank you....

  2. You are in my prayers, as always, Martha. Hopefully all of your bad luck has now passed and your junk-removing procedure will be flawless. And, by the way, freaky is not even close to describing those dead-playing, ten-foot jumping, swimming crickets. They're mutants... I think I'll say a prayer that they simply disappear from your world completely, Amen. :-) Hugs. Karen

  3. Ms. Depp,

    Thank you so much for allowing me to share in your journey with Jesus. I am moved! Please be assured that you are bringing Honor, Praise, and Worship to God Almighty.

    You are in my prayers. How sweet it is to know that Jesus conquered death and has prepared a place for each of His beloved. You are a beautiful sister-in-Christ.


  4. I'm always praying for you... Love love love you! xo :-)

  5. Martha, you are always in my prayers. I'll walk over to your house & do an exorcism rite (bugs) if you want!

  6. love you, martha... hoping we can catch up soon. love, joanne
