Subject: RE: BS: Healing thoughts & prayers please
From: Nigel Paterson
Date: 17 Feb 12 - 03:14 AM

Woke up early this morning with a head full of thoughts & 'what ifs' which I really didn't want to confront or have to deal with. However, one of the thoughts needs to be shared here. This 'Ship of Hope' which I launched on Jan. 12th, whilst we know it's probable final destination, the time taken to reach our ultimate port of call remains, and will almost certainly remain, unknown for some time to come. The voyage could be longer than we had anticipated, the seas hostile & rough, supplies could run low...it feels unreasonable of me to expect all of you currently 'on board' to remain so until we drop that final anchor. Maybe you could join me in my metaphor & let me know how you feel about this.
                                                    With Love to You All,
                                                                                    Nigel & Ann.

I think I speak for most contributors to this thread - when I say that we signed on for the journey no matter how long it takes. You need support and prayer for yourselves as well as for Jane, and I know that you are included in all our prayers and best wishes.
Your ship of hope has a first rate skipper in yourself, and a trusting and dedicated crew. We will keep you in mind even if you feel you may have to stop contributing to this thread.
Bset wishes to you both
Pete

"it feels unreasonable of me to expect all of you currently 'on board' to remain so until we drop that final anchor."

Nigel, I was on-call for 15 years as a volunteer firefighter. Of the 8760 hours in a year I spent 2000 of them working at a job I couldn't leave. I also spent 500 hours out of the province or otherwise indisposed. That left 6260 hours when I answered the pager. I don't think keeping your daughter, your missus and you in my thoughts for however long you need it will be much of an inconvenience if you know what I mean. In the words of my grandmother, "Are you daft?"

Friendship doesn't look at clocks.

Nigel, thanks for telling us of your thoughts and concerns for us. I echo what Pete/Banjoman said...in it for the long haul, that's what life really is anyway, isn't it? Prayers, good thoughts, thanks givings...these cost nothing and whatever good we each send out can return to us threefold or more. That's NOT why most of us offer it, but it is said to show you it is NOT a burden to help in this way, as we are each able. Fair sailing through thick and thin, stormy, sunny, and in-between to land on the shore, wherever and whatever that may be, we are here with you.

With all good wishes for Peace Profound,

My Dear Friends...What a Crew! I couldn't have hand-picked a better one! As we voyage together, along with your intercessions & words of wisdom, perhaps we could also include the occasional: "You'll never guess what happened to me today" type of thing or a simple reflection on how your day has gone...I'll endeavour to do the same. Whilst my feet are firmly planted on the deck of this wondrous vessel, I don't want to forget what dry land feels like.

Good morning, Nigel and Ann. I reckon it's spring here in Maine, because:

*The skunks are on the move, with their "perfume" wafting along the road
*Black-capped Chickadees are singing their spring song
*We have tulips, crocus, and daffodils on our windowsills
*Our bantams have begun laying again
*The seedling tomato we potted up in November is full of ripe, golden, "Garden Peach" tomatoes... inside...by our south windows.

Carpe deum!

Can't make up its mind here whether it's gonna be winter or become spring. Knowing Canada, it'll get right nasty later, thaw for a few hours, freeze overnight and be just fine for skating whether or not ya want to. Only fell on me arse once this winter. Had nowt to do with weather. It ain't the vodka that gets ya, it's those darned steppes.

Saturday afternoon...a wet, chilly East London...not much to lift the spirits, so a clumsy attempt at poetry will have to suffice.

"Walk beside me, hold my hand.
We're using time that wasn't planned.
Don't walk behind & force my pace,
There is no need for us to race.
And if in front your feet should stray,
Hold back, slow down, don't run away.
So walk beside me, touch my face
And feel the warmth of my embrace
As walking side by side forever
Binds so tight that none can sever".

       Ann is spending the weekend with Jane...just Mother & Daughter together, so I had them both very much in mind as the lines above took shape.
       Much Love to You All,
                                        Nigel & Ann

I was thinking about all things nautical today, but mostly the music. Today was the start of the first weekend since Mystic Seaport reopened on Thursday, so that's where I spent the day. The weather was beautiful: not too cold but with a brisk wind. Now I'm home, remembering you, and praying.

Sunday - weather is fine & sunny. Played music at vigil service last evening & met a priest visiting from Africa. He gave a sermon about people ignoring each other in Church. Reminded him of the wealth of people (This site) who really do care for each other. Anyway - his prayers are now included for Jane.
It suddenly dawned on me that a lot of people are praying for me, and probably lots of others on this thread who have health problems.

Monday morning & the sun is still shining. Two days in a row...that's nothing short of a miracle for the UK! My mind is suddenly filled with an image of Jane, standing in some wide open space, way out in the countryside, bathed in sunlight. As she stands there, the rays of the sun gently heal her...wouldn't that be something.

As jacqui said, that is a GREAT visualisation to hold onto!

Your poem went straight to my heart. How beautiful, loving, and poignant. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Our part of Colorado is laughingly called the Banana Belt for its mild winters. Yesterday we had a raw, cold wind with huge grey clouds filling the sky. This morning we woke to 2-3 inches of snow, BUT a bright sunny, deeply blue Colorado sky and it was gloriously beautiful. Most of the snow is gone and the sun has remained.

Each night, my grandson and I read to one another over the telephone, then I sing him a couple of lullies, and we say a prayer of giving thanks, part of which includes, "...we give thanks for blessings for all of our families and friends..." May it be so for all of us, esp. Jane, Nigel, and Ann.

You wonderful people never cease to amaze me...your words of wisdom so eloquently expressed...your intercessions & your desire to 'crew this ship' on it's voyage of hope...it takes my breath away. I'm reminded at this point that I always write in the 'first person', but rest assured, my beloved wife, Ann is standing shoulder to shoulder with me at the helm.
            I've received PMs, emails, handmade, thought- filled gifts...what more could I ask for.

I'm not a "God-fearing" man...not too keen on labels either, but if pushed, I would describe myself as a Humanist. I worship at the church of Life & Nature. I do, however, believe fervently in the power & integrity of The Human Condition, which includes our desire & ability to 'do whatever is needed to alleviate the suffering of others'. This thread underscores that 'desire & ability' in ways I have rarely experienced in my 64 years. Please continue with your intercessions, your prayers, your meditations, your positive thinking...whatever it is you do when you reach out to that 'needy other'. Ann & I try to visualise all of you every day...a sea of smiling, welcoming, compassionate faces. Knowing you're all there is a great comfort...stay close,

Nigel, Ann and Jane surely know by now there's a gang of us pulling for all of them. And we'll continue to keep doing so. Our mamas didn't raise no quitters (and neither did theirs). Good people do good things. This is a good thing.

We'll keep taking care of the thoughts and prayers for y'all and you three take care of business.

PS I don't presume to speak for the group, and I pondered this post for a while as a result, but I think it safe enough given the quality of the folk hereabouts.
