A Short Message From the Heart

This will be, for me, an unusual post. Those of you who know me here, and on Twitter, know that I’ll readily join in the round of joking and banter. But there is a time to be serious. Yes, there really is. Now, I’d like to say that, as a Christian, I have tended to refrain from posting anything on here that might be interpreted as ‘pushing religion down people’s throats’ and I would rather try to set out something by way of humility and compassion than by exposition of doctrine. I am concious of measuring up very poorly.

But tonight is different; Liska over at New Mum Online, just here, has made an appeal that I could not ignore. It’s about the plight of a blogger called Kerry, aka Multiple Mummy. I don’t know her really, myself, but those who do speak of a kind, compassionate woman with a big heart. Now, at the end of July this year, Kerry suffered a brain haemorrhage. We now gather that her progress since has been somewhat erratic.

Hence the direct appeal from Liska, for prayer.

I’d just like to say that I have prayed to the God in whom I believe and trust, about Kerry, and I will continue to do so; that God may be pleased to spare her life, and restore her to her loving husband and family – and also that her husband, children, extended family, and friends might be aware of genuine comfort, including the concern of a great many people, at this very agonising time.

With best wishes to you all. Thank you.

    Such a lovely post, like you for the first time tonight I have come out and openly declared myself as a Christian on my blog.as I don’t like to ‘preach’ but it was so important. Hoping with all my heart for a full recovery, amazing how something like this has united us all in prayer and collective good wishes.

  2. I had prided myself that I had personally visited every single post and commented on them all, tweeting each and everyone out and adding ones with images to Pinterest, but then at 10 p.m. the Twitter took over and as we trended #Healing4Kerry for 2.5 hours I didn’t get chance to get back on my rounds.

    Phil you are so beautifully eloquent here. So touching.

    And Fran, so beautiful that you both opened up.

    Liska xx
