Prayers requested
Shlama friends,

I had to get a new username because when I got a new computer I tried to import my passwords into it but it didn't work for some reason. Tried to retrieve the password through this site but no luck. Wrote to the only email address I know for Paul to see if he could do something about it but I think it might have gotten lost in the email system.

Anyway, I've been popping in and out here for a while. I've been silent because of a eye problem I developed. When everything started blooming out this spring apparently I got some kind of allergic reaction when pollen got in my eyes. I didn't think too much about it until I woke up one morning and thought my eye balls were going to pop out of the sockets they were swollen so much.

Long story short, one of my worst night mares came true, for about three weeks I had no vision at all but with a lot prayer (thanks be to God) and patience with medical treatment, I now have 80 percent loss of vision in my right eye and about 15 percent in the left and the doctor is hopeful it will get better.

At this point in time I'm just trying to reevaluate where I am and where I'm going but most importantly what Maran wants me to do. I have a lot of pending, unfinished projects: Spanish Peshitta, English translation of Aramaic Tanakh, etc. etc. etc. Too many things to do and little time to do it. I've gone through the whole depressed, why me, feeling sorry for myself thing but I think the Lord is saying "Get up, get moving," but I just don't know. I keep wondering if anyone would even benefit from such projects and if I should just "close up shop", so to speak. Maybe I'm still feeling sorry for myself. <!-- sBlush --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/blush.gif" alt="Blush" title="Blush" /><!-- sBlush -->

I'm asking for prayers for clear guidance from Maran as to what I should be doing and I apologize for being gone for so long. I feel really bad about being a part of asking for that Old Testament board here and then probably hounding dear Paul about getting it going and then not being here to participate in it. I really am sorry about that.

Albion, I know we talked about those Biblical Hebrew language courses a while back. Not sure what you're up to these days but I apologize and have to say I don't think I'll be much help to you at all now. It's hard enough to type and find the shift key without hitting the caps lock key, let alone teaching Biblical Hebrew. For that I'm sorry.
