  1. Homemade burgers for supper tonight.
  2. My folks specifically chose these types of windows because when they got the house, they had my then-almost-95-year-old grandmother and my 11-year-old nephew living with them. They were then in their mid 60s as well. They thought this type of window would be safest and easiest egress for the disparate age groups. We have a ranch-style, so none of them are far off the ground. I personally like a little more wall, but it definitely gets light in here. That's nice, too. Fire alarms were mentioned earlier. We have a number of them. One in the sitting room, one in our bedroom (formerly my grandmother's), one in my mom's room. They not only sound - very loudly! - but they also have a light alarm. My folks got these because my grandma was almost completely deaf, so they wanted to make sure if there was a fire she would wake up some how. We also have a carbon monoxide detector and a smoke alarm. Not gonna talk about what weapons we may or may not have. =D
  3. Have prayed. Will be praying.
  4. Our windows lift up to open. What I meant by "push out" is that, from the inside, we can push on the windows and they will go out of their frames. They are also a bit lower than most windows, so that, in an emergency (like a fire that blocks the way to an exit), anyone can push the window and get out that way.
  5. Our windows were designed to push out easily (they don't push in, though). How's that? =D
  6. Celina, here is the address: Mel-Rose Building, Unit no. 19, 6 Gen. A Luna St., Tuktukan Taguig And the phone number: 63 915 494 8573 I'm sure if you contact the Hardeckers, they can help you find a church closer to you if this is too much travel time. Let them know Mrs. DePriest told you about them.
  7. Biscuits and hamburger gravy. Num-num!
  8. Hey, Celina. Glad to have you back with us! Where do you live? Maybe between us, someone knows of a good church near you. Friends of ours just started a Baptist mission in Taguig City. Are you anywhere near there?
  9. Just got this update: "Jon is stable. They did an MRI yesterday and were able to identify no neck injury so they could take off the neck brace. This morning they did a tracheotomy and a direct feeding line into the stomach so all tubes are out of his mouth and he looks so much better. He looks like he'll be perfectly fine, but the doctors always let us know they have no idea what will be when he wakes up. Some severe brain injuries like his come out fine after a time, others less severe were vegetables."
  10. Since board policy is to not do this type of thing, editing is the direction we wanted to go. Thanks for your input, BrotherS.
  11. I just received word: "It was difficult yesterday and not looking good, but he was stable so they took him off the sedative drugs. He maintained through the day and night so they took a pressure sensing "bolt" out of his head this morning. He is breathing on his own which is good, but still in a coma. He may be in that state for days, weeks, or months. When he comes to, they have no idea what is state he will be in. They do know the brain damage was severe. All are here, Hannah coming tomorrow, and Ben on Thurs. His wife Laura will hardly leave his side, but trusting God and will be with him to the end, whatever that may be. God certainly is orchestrating all this and part of his plan. Pat Gordon sent a pastor he knows from here to visit. They are having a prayer meeting tomorrow afternoon for him. The military is amazing, wanting to cover all travel expenses. We have a peace but don't know what the outcome will be. We are planning to be here till Friday." They appreciate the prayer. As do we.
  12. I just found out today that the son of other friends of ours has passed away. I don't know the details, but I do know that he was only in his mid-20s. The family name is Hammond. Please be in prayer for the parents and his siblings, as well as other family/friends. Thanks.
  13. Thank you for editing your post. I hope that you edit the post on Facebook as well. This is a good lesson in not making assumptions about our brothers and sisters in Christ. Have a great day!
  14. @brandplucked - please edit your post to remove references to "Bible mocker." MountainChristian was not mocking the KJB - he was asking a question. Granted, mayhap the first part of his statement didn't need to be worded in that way, but an immediate assumption that he was mocking was wrong as well. Mountain is a member of this forum and has never given any indication that he does not accept the authority of the KJB. I would assume, since you wrote your answer in the format that you did, that you placed this on a separate site. Integrity would dictate that you change the accusation there. I thank you for your answer to the question, which was quite detailed. But, again, please edit the attack on his character out of your answer. Thank you.
  15. We just received this email this morning: " Jonathan was in a serious accident on Friday morning. He had a shear to his brain from the whiplash-the brain shifted inside his skull. The last MRI on Jon’s brain showed that the shear on his brain was severe-many broken/bleeding neurons that often do not show up on the scan, but in this case are very prominent which shows considerable tears. The next couple days are the most critical. They may bring him out of the induced coma on Monday and have no idea of the results: brain dead, normal or somewhere in between." This is one of the sons of very good friends of ours. They headed out for the 12-hour-drive this morning, as have their other kids. Please pray for them. For Jonathan, their request is God's will (he is married, so his wife needs prayer, too). For them for wisdom in communicating with their kids. And, we would add: for the entire family to grow closer to God through this. @BroMatt - do you remember the Grants? This is their son.
