It was a full moon and the smell of death hung in the air. Rock Starr doggedly pursued the murderer into his evil lair. One hand gripped his 45 auto and the other clutched his chest. He was having a heart attack, but he couldn’t stop. A little girl’s life hung in the balance.

“Please God; let me live long enough to put a bullet in that scum’s head. That’s all I as-k...”

His face twisted and he dropped his gun. It was as if God answered his prayer by dropping an elephant on his chest. His one good hand fumbled for his pills. They spilled!

He fell to the ground and groped in the moonlight until he scooped them up along with a handful of dirt. He placed a pill under his tongue. The nitro burned. He waited. Nothing. He took another. The elephant got off his chest. The second pill did it. He was going to live!

“Thank you God!” He said.

He was back on the trail.


It’s a good thing ol’ Rock didn’t have to take a third pill, because the instructions clearly state that after the third one, to call 911 and go directly to the hospital. Doctors get kind of pissy about not following their directions. I ought to know.

Anyway, I seem to need that second pill more and more these days. Every time I take it, it’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop. But I guess it’s all good as long as I don’t have to take a third nitro, right?

But I should count my blessings. I’ve started going to the Healing Room because of it. Wow! Each visit is like being transported to Heaven.

They don’t even know me, but the words they get from God blow me away. They say that God is going to do something mighty.

Third pill or not, I’m excited.

Hey, wish I lived near one of those healing rooms. They sound awesome and full of Godly people.

Whoa, get the elephant off his chest Lord, I pray.

I'm praying that the Lord heals you before you need another nitro pill. I praise God that He has work for you to do. God is awesome and He will have His way. Nothing is too big, too small, and nothing is impossable for Him.

Raise a standed, shout the Lord's name on high, march on. The battle belongs to the Lord. Praise the Lord for the battle won.

Come here, baby. let me smack you on the forehead, Ernest Ainsley style.

Now, eat your olive oil and a glass of red wine with supper. Eat your salmon and tuna twice or thrice a week. Get your antioxidants and CoQ10. And pray so your BP is nice and happy.

God, heal the hearts of all your kids.

Mir, - Hit me baby, one more time.

Thanks for the nutrition tips. Except for the occasional BBQ or dark chocolate, I eat a healthy diet.

I forgot about the red wine though. I should try it. If a glass a day is good for the heart, then a gallon a day should cure me in no time.

When I'm not so tired, I'm going to post to you some really great stress relief things that I ran across the other day.

In the mean time, I am praying for you, bro. God is not finished with you, yet!

Lord, watch over the Curm. Heal him. Totally. Cover his family with Your grace.

I've had a lot of friends in those healing rooms lately (both visiting and praying). I hope you soak in a whole lot of Holy Spirit.. :)

 

At Wednesday, June 21, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Wow, thanks everyone for all the support.

I’m doing fine. Really!

The doctors can fix this problem anytime surgically, but I elected to try the medications first. It did the trick a few years ago when this happened before.

Thanks again. I am humbled.

You've got a healing room in your area? Cool! We just got one here about a year ago. I haven't had tto go for anything, but I've heard good reports about it.

Praying you'll never need that third pill! :)

 

At Wednesday, June 21, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Ciera, - Wow, you’ve got one too?

We had two close by, and a third that’s not too far away.

But I’ve always wanted to visit the one in Spokane, just to see where it all started.

wow, that's awesome. about the healing room. i love it when things like that happen- people who don't even know you give you a word that just has to be from God because it's so right, y'know?
still praying for you, your heart, your writing, and for courage and strength and grace for your precious wife.
God bless!

Donna, Thanks for the prayers and encouragment!

 

At Thursday, June 22, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Karen, Wow, your post popped into my inbox just as I was clicking send on the one to Donna. Talk about timing!

Yes, I agree, it is encouraging when there are identical prophetic words given by complete strangers. These same things keep coming to me again and again.

Only God knows the future and when He tells us what is coming, there is always a reason.

Thank you for your prayers!

Yea, Mirtika! I want to pop him in the forehead too....

Stop playing tug-of-war with strapping youths and take care of yourself...I'm praying!

 

At Thursday, June 22, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Ouch....

And thanks for the prayers!

Awe, are they beating up on you? Poor man. You look out numbered. I just bought some chocolate and would give you some, but it won't fit through the mail.
Drat, eh? :)

 

At Thursday, June 22, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Yeah right.

Like you’d part with your chocolate.

We're praying, brother.

Thanks Michelle.

It means a lot to me. You are a blessing.

Wow, I'm like Rulan, I wish we had a healing room! That sounde cool! I'm glad you keep visiting, bro! Praying for a mighty work to come your way!

 

At Friday, June 23, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Thanks Michel, your prayers mean a great deal to me.

BTW - I LOVE the new story. My all time favorite!

Hmmmmmmm this looks a lot like Bonnie's set up....but not for long....mmmmwhahahaha...we are working on hers right now!

Love your colors. Oh, my right half looks funny here...the right boxes are too wide and overlap the center.

 

At Monday, June 26, 2006, Blogger The Curmudgeon's Rant

Mimi,

Yeah, I got my template from the same place that Bonnie did. But she fixed hers up a bunch. I’d love to find a template that’s curmudgeon proof.

Getting ready for the Scenes and Beans blog is proving to be more work than I imagined.
