I apologize if I offended anyone in my response to serobgirl. My intention was to offer support, not impose my religious beliefs on anyone.  In the future, I will choose my expressions more carefully.

At the risk to re-ignight the fireworks, I am not Christian, but I did not at all find the original mitdav's comment offensive. First, I respect immensley people with strong faith. Second, there was nothing specific to Christianity in the post. Words God, Lord, and prayer universely used in many, if not all religions. I found the comment refreshing and heartfelt.

OOOO, I guess my footnote is not quite PC then? If it isn't, Latin or not, perhaps I should change it?
