There is no way to say this without sounding dramatic, but here goes. Last Wednesday, I had another heart attack.

I was visiting ChristianWriters.com when I was hit with a wave of nausea and chest pain. I managed to send off a plea for prayer to Rulan and then everything went dim.

I’ll spare you the gory details, except to say that there doesn’t appear to be much, if any permanent damage. Time will tell.

My doctor warned me it was coming. I’ll give him that. For a couple months now, I’ve kept the nitro pills close at hand. It doesn’t seem to take much to bring on the angina.

Lucky for me, last week’s blogs were already written and uploaded. All I had to do was go online and click “publish” But even that felt like a lot. At least I’ve found a purpose for my laptop.

Yesterday, I got to go to church. When I walked through the door, I was hit by a wave of love and concern. I saw kids there who I’d never seen in church before. They came to find out if “Pastor Dave” was ok. It really blessed me.

Ten minutes into the service, it all hit Darla at once. She had been carrying such a heavy weight. She broke down and I held her tight as she released it to God. I love her so much.

I am taking the rest of this week off from blogging while I rebound. But I do plan to be back for Friday’s “Bad Pun Contest”. I enjoy your wacky comments so much.

Thank you for your prayers!

David, my friend. You have my prayers. And I'm believing and claiming your full recovery and healing. God is mighty and He loves you and your family. His mercies never end.

It touched my heart when I read of the kids asking how "Pastor Dave" was. That is so very cool. Reading of Darla, brought tears to my eyes.

I pray peace to you all and healing and protection to you in Jesus' mighty name.

amen!
wow, dave, you don't need to try and sound dramatic! that was quite dramatic enough!it was like the words "heart attack" jumped off the screen and hit me. i'm so sorry for being slack and not checking here sooner. were it not for Rulan leaving me a message to pray for you I may not have taken the time to check this morning either. (thanks Rulan!)
I too really felt for Darla as I read of her tears. PLease, Lord, by your grace be a comfort to David and his dear wife. I join the others and ask for your complete and swift healing, in the name of Jesus your son, who died to carry our sickness, sin and pain for us.Thanks for your grace, Father.
God bless you and Darla, David. Thanks for letting us know so we can pray for you.

You are healed in the name of Jesus. God is the Father of healing. He made your heart and He knows how to fix it. So keep positive. Keep saying that you are healed, because you are.

Dave,

I also came over from Rulan's blog. I've seen you around Christian Writer's but we've never had the opportunity to get acquainted. I pray that the Lord will give you his perfect peace during this time of storm. May He be with your wife and family also, and may He restore to you your health in record time!

Rest assured that I am still praying for you David. I hate to bother you at your time of rest but I also have an urgent prayer request. Some friends of mine just lost their 11 year old boy. The details are on my blog but their names are Lisa and Tim. They also have an 8 yr old daughter named Casey who needs prayer to handle this great loss. Thank you. I know you are a prayer warrior or else I wouldn't bother you right now. God bless you and I hope you recover swiftly!
