Merry Christmas . . . and Pray for Michael Spencer

Merry Christmas to all.

I have met many of you though Michael Spencer's longstanding blog page. As most have known, Michael has been ill for the last couple of weeks, but information was limited, as I assume that the family was totally distracted by the urgency of the situation. I think I irritated some people on his blog by me asking too many questions. Most of you probably know, even before me, that he is suffering from a brain tumor and had brain surgery to have it removed. The family has updated the information on his facebook page. On the last look, he is out of ICU and hopeful will be discharged soon. It may be a long time before we are able to see him blogging again. Keep him and his family in your prayers.

I hope that everyone is doing well. I know that this time of year can bring out the best and the worst (at least some sad things) in all of us.

Merry Christmas, Michael, to you and your family.

I had no idea Michael Spencer was that ill, thank you for the fb link.
He has been a bright spot on the web.

I know I was getting irritated because I really care about the guy and wanted to know what was going on . . . but no one was talking. I understand now that family has been over-whelmed, too over-whelmed to post anything until the last couple of days. I had been checking his face book and twitter several times a day just to know something. They do need our prayers.

I hope you are doing well. Mike

Mike, I too, have been following Imonk for a couple of years. He really has a gift for putting good thinking about difficult issues on paper, and I would not have wanted his baptist bible belt heritage to work through. I just found out how serious it was and will be praying for him.
