I found out a few weeks ago that my dad has a brain tumor. It's not cancerous, but is causing hearing loss, a "full head" feeling, headaches, and more. About 5 or 6 years ago, by Dad also had a head injury, so this is somewhat familiar to my family but still hard. He has several options on how to either remove it or slow its growth, but it sounds like there's a good chance of him losing all of his hearing on his right side along with other possible complications/problems. I just wanted to ask for prayer for him and my family, since we've been through alot in the past and are going through alot now and the near future.

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13
First, let me introduce myself: I'm 39, a mother of 3 children, ages 17 (girl), 9 (girl) and 7 (boy) . . .

My question is my son: he's a little effeminite (sp?) and whines a little and shows tendancies towards being submissive etc. etc. etc. OF COURSE this concerns my darling hubs & I . . .

Let me tell you a tad about hubs--he's more of the conviction that being a man is about hunting, fishing and telling people "exactly what's what" and has his strong opinions on political issues etc. My husband was raised Catholic and I'm Evangelical and I think we're Co-dependant. *anyways* there's tons of problems, there . . .
I think I have a tendancy towards people-pleasing (esp. HIM) but, yet, I'm trying soooooo hard for Christ to be Master . . .

*anyways* I'm asking for your prayers and advice over my 7 year old son!!!!!! Hubs's recent response towards his whining has been to say "be a man" and "stop being a baby" etc. and stop whining. but usually, we've treated it "as usual". Which would be, "stop it" (occasionally) or to just ignore it . . .

I mean, what do you do? already at Cub Scouts one boy has labeled him a "sissy" or something and he's been beaten up once, by a bully. I mean, he's in first grade?!?!!!!!! what the heck!!!!!!!

I know that my son is very sensitive and that it's a good thing. Other than that?!!! He wears a hat and we try to keep him separate.

I'm just asking for prayer and wisdom, I guess.

It's hard. I don't want to have to go to *another* bible study or read some book but *any* prayer or advice would be helpful.

My name is Krystal Strickland and I just joined the group, and figured I'd intoduce myself...I'm 20 years old and am in college finishing my generals at a community college and will transfer soon to a bigger one to become a counselor. I'm a leader in the ministry at the community college (we're affilliated with Campus Crusade for Christ), and enjoy encouraging and advising other Christians.

I grew up in church and accepted Jesus as my savior when I was five, but I didn't really live for Christ until I entered my first year of college. Since then God had been doing amazing things with and through me. He's so great! If you want to know anything more, you can ask me or look at my journal.

God bless you all!

Thank you to all who have been keeping me in your prayers...but i'm afraid that hope is no longer an option...he confessed to cheating on me...so we have officially broken up three months shy of our five year anniversary...never had i ever thought that i would be typing these words...but yet i am.

Please keep praying so that my body stops trembling and spasming....and that God will someday heal my heart.
