Martie's reply to my "Can I Pretend". Who better to define what is taking place here.
Gob Bless Our Flower Girl! :-)

For Our Beloved Martie


Why must the clouds so feel the need
To block out all the light
And cast their darkened shadows upon
Those that we hold tight

Why must a din of somber so encase
The ones we love
And make us hold our hearts and question
As we look above

This world in which we live in
Can be anything but fair
The weight that some are handed
Can be more then most can bear

The challenges can test us far beyond
The widest bounds
And press upon us firmly till we lay
Upon the ground

We come together on this day to lift
One of our own
A very special person who shall
Never be alone

We gather here now one and all
To send the love we share
We gather now to tell you Martie
How so much we care

So come with me and join your hands
and wrap her in our arms
And shroud her with our thoughts
And prayers to shield her from all harm

It’s feelings just like these
That almost cannot be expressed
The words that we are looking for
we simply don’t possess

Sometimes it’s more then just the words
That tell us how we feel
Sometimes it’s so much more then that
That helps to make us heal

Our Martie is the grace within
That keeps our hearts aglow
We care for her and need her
Much more then she’ll ever know

Dear Martie and Taylor, and family and friends,
I just know that everything will turn out all right.
I could never even begin to think otherwise.

Please know that I will have you near me in my thoughts and prayers.
With all the blessed love and thoughts coming your way, I just know
That you will be up and running in no time.

Martie, you hang in there now okay.
I absolutely refuse to imagine a world without you in it.

Big Hugs

Most Sincerely,
Your Friend,

Richy

Dear Ed (Rat Leader), thank you so much for the note!
That meant so much to me.
I had no idea this was happening, I am still in shock.
Thanks Again.

I spoke to our unflappable Martie this morning…I think she’s taking care of everyone else and making sure they are at ease and repeats that no one is to worry.

The surgery will begin at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.  Her surgeon is Dr. Chen.  She didn’t know the anesthesiologist’s name at this time.  Her nurse is Milena.  Let us keep them in our thoughts as well, as they take care of our Flower Girl.

I have continued to let Martie know of all of the love and support she has from all of you.  She feels this in her soul, and it does her heart good to know you are all pulling together for her.  I told Martie I would call back this evening, and talk to Taylor if she is too tired to talk.  I know from my own experience that it was but a matter of hours and my husband was very active after his surgery.  It was a couple of days later that the adrenalin wore down that he did a lot of resting.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your messages.  I know it takes time away from your family and friends to come in here and check on updates, but please know how much your words are appreciated.

Thank you.

"Our unflappable Martie" - oh Sunshine, I just love that!  That is her to a T!  In fact, to an M and an A and an R and a T and an I and an E!

I am sure that Dr Chen and Milena could not have had another patient with so many people rooting (or is that routing? - I have never thought about the origin of the term before) for her!  

I will certainly include Dr Chen and Milena in my prayers to God to guide them to make things as perfect and as easy as possible for "our feisty, unflappable Martie"!

Martie, even if it is too close to your op for you to get these through the Internet, you’ll get them through the ether – lots of smiles, hugs, strength, confidence and hundreds of powerpunch-prayers that will continue until you are through the operation and the rest period (except for when I fall asleep – but when I wake I will continue them non-stop).  I have taken note of the 30 minute change, and have co-ordinated the times for the probable end of the op and the probable recovery time before Taylor will be in contact with Sunshine.  Now, it's fine to be feisty, but take things slowly and rest a lot.  We lovvvvvvvvvvvvve you.

Hello Martie,

Can you feel the prayer circle growing?
The love and prayers of all your friends at PiP continue..
and will not end until you are better
and back here with all of us.

Taylor and your family, the wonderful doctor and nurses
are all there for you, as we are here.
You do as the doctor asks okay?

I will be back for further updates from Karilea.
Prayers and healing hugs continue Martie.

Holding you close to my heart...you take care.
We love you Martie!

*Thank you Karilea for all you are doing keeping us informed*

Three cheers for Sunshine!

Martie, you'll read this later....but I know you feel it now.

Editing this in, at 1:45 Pacific Time...

Prayer is many things. It is talking to God, first and foremost, for anyone who believes.

It also can be also something else, something that even non-believers can give. It is the offering of the spirit's own substance, its strength, for a goal that we feel strongly enough to give of our very selves. It has an effect, whether we direct it to and through God or not, because there is that which is God, but there is also that which is humanity, and it is in our nature to give, not merely receive.

This is one of those times, when we all can pray....and all of us are praying, believers or no. We share this, all of us.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Amen.

Prayer For Someone At A Distance

Find a quiet place, be quite in it:

Imagine your heart pumping
Energy, from feet to head
As you inhale each breath.

Let the life force flow,
Back to ground on each exhale
Send messages to earth,
Let time stand perfect still..

Employ your hands as vessel cups,
Then curve your arms in circle shape,
As if the distant anguished one
Was there with you, to share embrace,
And in that grasp, hold on to peace
Transport the person to safe place,
Carry them within your wings,
Unburden them with touch by joy.

You might hear music (your heart)
Playing a Divine orchestration,
And your voice may raise to sing
Without intent or instruction,
As your prayers on breaths emit-
Particulates, atomic quick dispersing
Prayers that world wise spread,
Across the miles to heal the one
Distressed and at a distance.

Pray the highest spirit take
(Over) both your human lives,
Ask for creations intervention...

The seas cannot stay apart
the hands in reach to hold;
the sky in beam of every heart
as sands stream still in gold;
lines of lexis knit a sound
and all in breath of you;
flowers stand around in still
quivering heartbeats true.
All have come a’gathering
plucking at a tune,
Come home Martie, come home please,
to sing your poems…and soon.

Martie it is exactly 2 hours into your operation time and our vigil time.  It should be only another 2 to 2½ hours more and then another 2 t0 4 hours in recovery and then Taylor will be giving the good news to Sunshine.

My powerpunch prayers are shooting up continuously.  I can feel how well it is going.  Hang in there, Martie, Taylor and family.  Not long now.

Lots and lots of love

- Owl
