Thoughts and Prayers


It wouldn’t be home without a place for our prayers and good wishes for loved ones. Please add those you wish to be remembered, during good times and bad, as a reply.
It is not possible to put a candle in replies, so the ones at the top of this  page will
continually cast their glow on all who enter here and on all who are remembered here.



  1. Kerri, I’m thinking of you & your husband during these times. (I did try to copy & paste the candle, but I now see Sarah’s comment about that.) Take care.


  2. Please remember Maryse’s sister-in-law, Carol, in your prayers.
    She is ill and is at the hospital now. Your strengths are needed.

    Blessings and prayers, Carol. We hope you are feeling better soon.


  3. Dear Kerri

    So sorry to hear of Pete being ill and in the hospital. I send you dear friend all my prayers and heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Take care and God Bless


  4. Dear Maryse

    I am praying for your sister-in-law and hope she gets well soon. God Bless you and her and all your family!

    Take care


  5. Since 9-19-17 things have changed for Rose and her family. Her cancer battle was short-lived. Let’s remember Rose’s family in prayer as they adapt to life without her.



  6. Prayers for all who are being deluged with grief in one way or another. I think of the hurricanes, the fires, the
    flooding, the mass shootings,

    and send prayers and good wishes to all who have suffered through them.

  7. Wendy needs your prayers

    I heard from Wendy just a few moments ago. She has fallen and cracked her knee cap.
    She is badly bruised and has a lateral crack on the kneecap. At first, they thought it would heal on its own provided the bones did not move and misalign . Now a week later, she saw the orthopedic surgeon again and he says she needs surgery to stabilize the kneecap because the bones moved. They want to insert pins into the area. She has another consultation next week as pre-op to the surgery. She is seeking a second opinion. She also sprained her right arm and has bruises all over it.

    Please remember her in your prayers and send your very best vibes her way.

  8. Please pray for Kallie, and do whatever you can to brighten her holidays, and her time in the nursing facility.

    Kallie’s husband, Paul, (known as Phishgod at the Pub) gave me an update and it is not the best of news. Kallie is temporarily back in the nursing facility because she has lost mobility.
    An excerpt from his note:

    ” Kallie wanted me to email you & let you know she hasn’t been
    Online & pojo-ing with you because she is back in the nursing home,
    & has been for about the last three weeks or so……

    Her lymphedema and some related medical problems made it progressively harder to get up and move to & from her chair(to) wheelchair or even enough to stand a little– because she lost feeling & movement in her strong leg.

    ….She may be there for an extended period of time, so it may be sometime before she is back on line.

    …She wanted me to let you know that she misses her poet friends and to wish you all the best for the holidays.

    …Kallima Hamilton
    Medi-Lodge of Okemos,
    Room 302-1
    5211 Marsh Rd,
    Okemos, MI 48864

    Happy holidays to you, yours and to all her poet friends!”

    It really breaks my heart that our jazzy-girl Kallie is spending the holidays
    in a medical facility. I know she would rather be home. It would brighten
    her day immensely if everyone would send her a card from time to time.
    Lets do our Pub thing and make her Christmas as bright and cheerful as


  9. Hi Deb

    I send my prayers and hope for your husband to heal and for God to give you both the strength and comfort you need to weather this storm.

    Take care and God Bless!
    Love Wendy


  10. Hello Deb,
    It’s nice to see you back at our Pub. Welcome home here. I am praying for your husband & you. May the Lord’s peace fill your heart as you’re going through these struggling times.


  11. Thank you so much for the warm welcome home…
    Thank you for your prayers for Donald.
    I pray for his comfort and ease of pain
    Again Thank You All


  12. New Room # for Kallie…

    Let’s make our goal this week to be sure that Kallie gets a record number of cards to bring more sunshine into her room. See below for links to her work. Knowing that
    her work is being read would be a huge boost to her spirits, even if you don’t know
    her personally. Her address follows:

    Same place, different room:

    Kallima Hamilton
    Medi-Lodge of Okemos,
    Room 121-1
    5211 Marsh Rd,
    Okemos, MI 48864

    She loves getting cards…so all of you poets and writers
    can really brighten her day by letting her know you
    are thinking of her.

    For those of you who have not read her poetry,

    Here are a couple of links:

    Even if you don’t know Kallie, it would really
    make her day to get a card mentioning that you read her
    poetry at The Peaceful Pub. Putting a smile in the heart
    of one who is suffering a devastating illness is a great way
    to make this world a better place.
