This is the third gun-related death in my family since Drew’s death in May, and it has everyone rattled. I don’t have a role in the service, but want to open doors for on-going conversation. Grief is an unexpectedly difficult situation to wrap one’s arms around–there is no manual and every situation seems unique. It seems its two steps forward, two steps back these days. stephen says: January 7, 2017 at 9:33 am Filberts: that is tragic and my heart and prayers go out to you. Jean says: January 7, 2017 at 9:36 am filbertz, I’m very sorry for your loss. May God grant you an open door for conversation at the funeral and wisdom for what to say (or not say). May He give you holy timing. stephen says: January 7, 2017 at 9:39 am As for me…thoughts running through my mind are: 1). I wonder hoe Biblical the “visionary pastor-leader” role is…the kind that says “I think the Lord wants xyz,” and then basically leaves it to the people “on the ground” to do the work… 2). Apparently Jack Hibbs’ show was cancelled on KWVE. I wonder why…(I mean, he IS one of the biggest prophesy/end of days teachers out there niw). Maybe I’ll mention some more later London says: January 7, 2017 at 9:50 am Fil, I’m sorry to hear you guys are going through all that. You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers today. Hang in there. Linnea says: January 7, 2017 at 9:56 am Fil- I’m so sorry to hear of these tragedies. You and your are in my prayers. David H says: January 7, 2017 at 10:02 am fil, Take care. That’s all I’ve got. em ... again says: January 7, 2017 at 10:19 am joining in praying for filbert and for his nephew’s family – for all of us as the times seem so chaotic, so ungrounded JD says: January 7, 2017 at 10:32 am Our young step nephew shot himself in the head the day after Christmas 2016. So many whys to which only God knows the answers. Our prayers go up for you and your family filbertz. dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 11:04 am Oh FIl, sorry for your losses! Praying for you and your family! dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 11:05 am JD, sorry for your loss, praying for you and your family as well David H says: January 7, 2017 at 12:04 pm I can never find the right words. I know to just listen. I lost a lifelong friend to suicide two years ago, then another one to the same thing six months later. I miss them a lot. jlo says: January 7, 2017 at 2:36 pm Stephen, a couple of days ago there was a statement on the CCCH website that basically said due to differences Hibbs would no longer be on KWVE by his choice. The statement has since been removed. filbertz says: January 7, 2017 at 2:49 pm The service was awkward and difficult–lots of tension due to the unresolved investigation, school resuming Monday, social media finger pointing and rumors, a minister who didn’t know the deceased…and lots of plain old hurt, grief, and loss. Hopefully my nephew and others I spoke with will seek and find help–it’s a big mess. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. DavidH and JD–sorry to hear of those losses. Suicide is such a brutal situation to work through. jlo says: January 7, 2017 at 2:50 pm the statement was moved here: https://reallifewithjackhibbs.org/message-socal-listeners/ stephen says: January 7, 2017 at 3:23 pm Jlo: That letter sure makes it sound like KWVE made the move to remove the program…not that Hibbs and associates made it… Scooter Jones says: January 7, 2017 at 3:34 pm This happened recently here in Oregon. This story is almost too much to bear. http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/news/2017/01/06/hubbard-case-focused-murder-suicide/96248012/ Scooter Jones says: January 7, 2017 at 3:35 pm He was an “elder” at their church. Yeah, right. Linnea says: January 7, 2017 at 3:42 pm Lord have mercy… mk says: January 7, 2017 at 4:48 pm I’m so sorry, Fil. My thoughts and prayers go forth for you and your family. dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 4:49 pm Mk! Still praying for you. dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 4:52 pm Fil sorry it has been so rough on you this past year. ((((Hugs)))) will keep praying for you dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 4:55 pm Michael still praying for your recovery. mk says: January 7, 2017 at 4:55 pm Thank you, Dusty. You are so dear.<3 mk says: January 7, 2017 at 4:55 pm Dusty, <3 mk says: January 7, 2017 at 4:56 pm I apologize…was trying to send Dusty a heart. 🙂 dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 5:50 pm Mk <3 mk says: January 7, 2017 at 6:05 pm Dusty, Received! dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 6:07 pm 😉 Linnea says: January 7, 2017 at 6:16 pm Folks, My sons went skiing today and took a few friends. One of the girls, Dannie, hit a tree and is in the hospital, requiring multiple surgeries to put pins in to repair broken bones. She is very special to us. Would you pray for her quick recovery, and for Mom, Lori, who is at her side in another town? I appreciate your prayers… dusty says: January 7, 2017 at 6:27 pm Praying now linnea. John 20:29 says: January 7, 2017 at 8:20 pm Linnea, while thankful that she wasn’t killed, joining in praying for your friends (a few years ago my grandson was taken off the mountain by ambulance with a head injury and i am confident that the prayers here had much to do with his recovery) mk says: January 8, 2017 at 5:29 am Linnea, Joining in prayer for Dannie and Lori. Praying for Dannie’s quick recovery. Linnea says: January 8, 2017 at 6:49 am Thank you, dusty, John 20:29, and mk for your prayers. We still don’t know much this morning–they airlifted her to a trauma center hospital and the last we heard docs were trying to identify the cause of internal bleeding before proceeding with repairing her limbs in surgery. John 20:29–I’m so sorry to hear of your son’s head injury. I’m so grateful for this community for prayer… Linnea says: January 8, 2017 at 11:59 am Just got an update on Dannie–she was in a 6 hour surgery this morning to fuse several vertebrae. They took x rays during the surgery because she has also a punctured lung and they were monitoring that the lung didn’t collapse. The surgery to put a plate in her arm will be in the next few days. If you would, could you continue to pray for her and her family? Thank you so much… dusty says: January 8, 2017 at 8:01 pm Filbertz, still praying for you my friend ((hugs)) dusty says: January 8, 2017 at 8:04 pm Linnea, still praying for dannie and her family and yours. My sweet friend ((((hugs)))) dusty says: January 8, 2017 at 8:06 pm Still praying for you big brother. Get better soon. We need you. ((( hugs)))) dusty says: January 8, 2017 at 8:07 pm Mk (((((hugs)))) <3 ♡ dusty says: January 8, 2017 at 8:09 pm John 20:29 praying your area warms up. Stay warm sweet lady. (((Hugs)))) John 20:29 says: January 8, 2017 at 9:33 pm we have a respite from the deep freeze, but have added to our snow pac – about 24″+ out there now… except for a couple outdoor chores it is a good time to stay inside and think about God’s promises and pray that God the Holy Spirit will bring healing and comfort and truth (God’s truth heals)… i believe the Plains native tribes have referred to January as the month (moon) of hard times… it certainly is for so many in so many different ways this year – Psalm 30 might be worth a read this nite love those dusty (((Hugs))) back at you dear woman God keep all close and comforted Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your Comment You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <s> <strike> <strong> Name (required) E-mail (required) URI Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
