Big John you hit the nail on the head. When I think back to when I first joined this forum it was Mike who inspired me to keep writing lyrics and to buy a keyboard. Hell I had barely kept up with my acoustic guitar playing in 20 years. Just reading Mike's posts inspired me to keep with it. .....So Mike just remember, people can make a difference in other people's lives. You've proved that for so many of us here on the forum.

Hey Bro.  I've not been around much lately, but this whole bunch of folks here at the forum are in my thoughts daily.  Just want you to know I think of you as my brother in Christ, and I'll do whatever I can to help in any way that I can.  You will be lifted up in my prayers daily, numerous times throughout the days and nights ahead. I just got home from work a few minutes ago, my days are completely filled up with working hours lately.  It's been so long since I've sat down and wrote a song; I've probably forgotten how to write one.  But the song of my heart tonight is for the great out-pouring of The Father's abundant Grace.  Poured right into the heart of your every need.  May there be complete healing for you, may there be great joy for you, may you experience the presence and the peace and comfort that comes in knowing that He is with you throughout each and every trial.  May every burden be lifted, may every need be met. 

The Lord is your shepherd...you shall not want... surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow you all the days of your life, and you shall dwell in the house of the Lord Forever...

We love you Bro., a whole bunch, But Jesus loves you even more! I call upon him now for intercession on our Brother's behalf.

Dear Mike,

Keep the faith....
Keep laughing....
Keep smiling...
Keep fighting....
and....Keep knowing....that this big global family out here is thinking about you as you go to battle against this.

You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Troy

P.S.  Promiss us you won't burn any of your valuable energy watching and worrying about national news stories that can add stress to your day while there is nothing you can do to fix them. Turn off the news and turn on your favorite music and movies that bring humor, hope and inspiration. They are the better choices for quick recovery.:D

Roy, this is one time it's makes me very happy to have someone say to me " I told you so!"  

Mike it's really good to see your smiling face!  We sure do miss you hanging out with us, but right now all we want you to do is take care of yourself and get healthy again.  I did say to Roy that 'business as usual'  just didn't feel right, but they have all convinced me that it is indeed the right thing to do.  So, just for you, Mikey, and because we love you, we will try to keep the forum...business as usual!

Troy, this is soooo true!!!!  Mike, don't even watch the dang news, they only like to dig up the worst they can find for scare factor. Or the saddest most depressing stories.  Keep up your strength and stay away from anything that causes unnecessary stress!!  You are only allowed to watch music videos or the comedy channel.  ;)  Love ya!!!

Checking in.  Heading for early treatment this morning. 

Decided to try to put the melody to "Love is a River" and get something recorded maybe this weekend with my buddy James if we feel like it.  You can look the lyrics up here somewhere.

Bless you all.

-Mike

That's the spirit Mike.  I would imagine that throwing yourself into your music when you're up to it will help you in few different ways.   Hang in there, bro.  You let us know if you need something.

Good Morning Mike, I pray today will be a good day for you.

I went over to Gospel Lyrics yesterday and read Love is a River, it's a beautiful song.  Sure hope you feel up to recording it this weekend, we would all love to hear it.

Material suffering is suffering from hunger, homelessness, and diseases. Still, I think the greatest suffering is being lonely, feeling unloved, having no one.

I'm sorry it took so long to find this.   I know it's a hard thing to endure.  Please know Mike that you have your entire "musical family" behind you..........and you will be in my prayers daily.

Hey Mikey!!! At times like this words for all their power and versatility lack the required nuances to convey the deep feelings of frustration and powerlessness we feel upon learning of someone we care for has met with misfortune. This is a note to add to the many beautiful wishes of recovery and solace expressed here by the membership.I have a chronic condition as well and so am familiar with some aspects of your condition. I know you have been praying fro me and others of the forum and certainly now it is our turn to repay.Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water. Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea. My prayers are with you and I am putting you on the prayer list of our retreat centre. God bless you with faith and recovery,and may he be a constant companion and solace to you during this trial. Yours Sincerely John Valaire

Hey Mikey!!! More words!!! Just hearing you going to record something bucks me up quite a bit. Heaven loves a song, consider that the Lutheran church has about 130,000 songs in its portfolio. God Bless. Johnnybgoode!!!

Hi Mike, Just thought I'd drop by and say hello and let you know I'm thinking about you today.   

You have been in our hearts and on our minds all week and even when we're  not posting it, please know that everything remains the same...we love you, we are praying for you and we are here for you.  Just hang in there and do what you have to do to put this part of your life behind you.

Thanks for the support everyone.  I am here.

I'm on my last 4 days of this stage of radiation and chemo, then a break for a week or so.

Seeing as I had to close my business, I have now taken the office in the house and turned it into a full fledged recording studio.  I barely have my computer up and most of the network in the last few hours but it is getting there.  I got just enough going so James and I could try to practice "Love is a River" this evening.  We didn't get too much done but we're working on it.  Did get some pictures so will try to get those posted when I am able.

Good night everyone and God bless.

-Mike

Mike ole buddy! Great to hear from you. Believe it or not, but I was just sitting here thinking about you and wondering how you were doing .

I know you must be bushed. A few of us here know first hand how those treatments can zap your energy. You rest old friend and get your strength up and know we're all praying for you and your family and if there is any thing any of us can do for you please let us know.

Can't wait to hear the song and see the pics!

John
