“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10
Today’s Bible reading – Genesis 41-42; Matthew 12:1-23
The celebration of life service for Miss Carmen Reyer takes place at 11:00AM today in our church auditorium. It will be preceded by ninety minutes of visitation with the family. Pray for the family and for the service. We are certainly going to miss Carmen as we have missed Louis since his promotion last February.
Visited with Ruby Gulley yesterday morning. She remains in ICU and they are keeping her sedated. They drained fluid from one of her lungs. Saw her daughter, Christy, and Ruby’s sister, Sharon, and they were “thinking” the doctor was going to try and wean Ruby from the ventilator yesterday. Keep praying for Ruby.
Visited with Miss Kathleen yesterday. She too remains in ICU but seems to be better. She was not on oxygen and we had a nice, albeit brief, conversation. She complimented me on my tie which is very normal for her. That is a good sign of her improvement. Keep praying!
Visited with Carla Kyser yesterday. She was asleep when I got there but then came to the table for lunch. She and I talked “some” but she continues to weaken physically. Folks, Marisa is a great caregiver to her daughter. She and Carla need our continued prayer support.
I met with a group last night and we spent time specifically praying for Carla, Becky Sellers, Lisa Thompson and Tim Knighten. I ask you to join us in those prayers!
Fourteen folks took the time to join me last night in prayer between 5:00 – 7:00PM. I appreciate that! Two of our most consistent prayer warriors are out of town and they were missed.
We are on a regular schedule tomorrow morning/evening with one exception. We will have breakfast at 9:00AM in the fellowship hall. This is our monthly senior adult gathering but this breakfast is open to anyone who plans to attend the 10:00AM service.
Continued to receive positive feedback from folks yesterday regarding the message and the altar call Sunday night. Just praying for chains to be broken. Pray fervently!
Yesterday’s entry received comments from our two Texas readers – Gena Davis & Sommer Brock. They were “upset” because of my comments about the Cowboys! Listen, I did not like the Cowboys when these two sweet ladies lived in Grand Bay and I do not care for them now! Now, I am running the risk of losing two of our thirteen readers but a man has to stand firm! Hooray for the Packers and go Falcons! (Actually, I lost interest in football the night of 1/9! Just saying!)
This weather has me itching to get some seeds in the ground. Have to get ahead of John Milton. However, I will not do anything until after I return from Guatemala in February. I do not anticipate us having any sustained cold weather at all the rest of this Winter.
I pray that you will have a great Tuesday with Jesus
