Title: I'm burned out
Post by: Little Joe on February 28, 2008, 10:58:00 PM
Hello everyone,

I need to focus all my attention on the Lord and my Family now, especially my son with all of his emotional and physical problems.  I also need a big attitude adjustment myself.  I'm not going to quit the forum-I made that mistake before-I'll just keep it on the backburner.   Please pray for me and my family.  Fell free to PM me if you wish, I'll check in every few days.

ciao, in The Lord,

Hi Little Joe...your thread title struck a chord with me tonight. I just wanted to wish you the best. I'm going to take a breather too. I have 3 teenage sons and they take a lot of energy. You sound like you have special challenges with your son and I will certainly try to keep you and your family in my prayers.

For me the time I spend on the forum takes away from the time I have to study and read the Word. Focusing attention is a great way to put it and I wish you all the best.

Ciao, in the Lord, back at ya,

Hi Joe,

I have been there from time to time, a need to slow down and absorb the things I have experienced and to seek His Peace. Your contributions here are appreciated and I am sure I speak for many when I say we look forward to your return as your spirit is refreshed.

God bless you and yours,

Hey Little Joe,

                    My prayers will certainly go out to you, I really enjoy your comments at Bible Truths, it can be tough at times with family members that require special care. My Brother has a son thats' Autistic, he still wears diapers at almost six years of age, it puts a strain on his Marriage, he and his wife have overly indulge and spoiled him since birth, escalating the problem, most of us Siblings stay out of it, caring advice has proved futile. I worked at a State Mental Health Facility for 20 years(1976-1996), working for awhile with ones that have severe emotional problems, besides their MR status.

                    May the peace of God that excels all thought, guard your Heart and Mind through Jesus Christ, our Lord.          Your Brother, Samson.

Hi Joe,

I can relate and I probably need to force myself away occasionally as it is good to step back, take in some fresh air, and return with new insights.

I also wanted to add that I too appreciate your contributions to the fellowshiip and look forward to hearing from you soon.
