Hey friends. It’s been a long time.

Post by revspipes » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:02 am

Not because I don’t like you, but because I have been very busy with my gym. As usual though problems can slow you down and make you seek out your friends that pray.

My back is so bad I am currently using a walker. I am getting surgery on Dec 3. Please pray for me and my business which is a bit me centric. I will be gone for two months and not able to wrestle or spar for 6. I realize I need to change. Just because I can beat the 250lb twenty year old doesn’t mean I should. In fact my current state proves it. This is my fault, I have spent a lifetime trying to destroy my body and now I am feeling it. Every year a new major ailment.

Anyways, I know you all pray so please cover me

Rev

I had to double check the date before reading the post. ;) Good to see around, Rev, wish it was under better circumstances.

Much respect, rev. I suppose a man has to know his limits...wish I could beat a 250lb young man.

I hope you can find balance. I wish you well. I miss seeing those sweet little pipes of yours.

Hi Rev!

Glad to see you again. And sorry to hear that you are suffering from crippling pain.

I have added you to the Post-It note of prayer intentions.

Rev, I also will be praying for a quick recovery and wisdom on how to handle the future.

Don't neglect your body of believers. You really need this during your rough time. My son works for Amazon. They recently lowered his hours to 55 a week. He works nights. He is largely unable to stay awake in Church at this period. We tell him he has to listen to the sermons online. When we are at our weakest moments, that is when we need Christ's help the most.

Lord have mercy.

I’ve met the good Rev face to face. He’s one tough dude. Darn near broke my back just looking at me!
