Mrs. Theople Hurst is thankful to be home.  Today, she will have some testing done as they try to determine what her problem was.  Pray all goes well.

Jadon’s Journey

As a parent with a child with a rare diagnosis, I can so relate to this. I have spent many hours researching in order to find the best help possible for Jadon. I’m very thankful that his doctors not only listen to me, but research themselves to find the best treatments and therapies for Jadon. If it wouldn’t have been for the research we have done, Jadon wouldn’t be where he is today. So thankful!

Maggie Lee Henson passed away due to injuries she suffered when the church bus she was riding on had a tire issue that caused a wreck.  Her parents kept us updated as we all prayed for healing.  God healed Maggie Lee in heaven.  Her parents have made good things happen because of the years they had Maggie Lee living with them.

Devotional, Scriptures, and a Song

  • “New to the  Family” –
  • There will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents   than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.                                                                                                                     ~Luke 15:7~                                                                                                                                                  “He rejoiceth more of that sheep,                                                                  than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.”                                                                                                                         ~Matthew 18:13~
  • “The Ninety and Nine” –

I remember hearing this song for the first time.  I was at Natalbany Baptist Church.  Uncle Charles Tolleson was leading the music for revival.  After church, I asked my parents why 99 sheep would be left alone just so one could be saved. That very night, I learned how important each and every person is to God.  I was five or six years old and have loved the song every since.  I just shared the story with David for the first time.  I’m glad the devotional for today triggered this memory.

I hope this “favorite” sticks with me today and that I remember the value of each person to the kingdom forever.

The last I heard about “Miss” Theople was that the hospital is continuing to run tests, but has no answers yet.  She has been moved to room 4103, rather than the second floor room the hospital first talked about.  They are waiting for someone who is able to read the x_rays.  I’ll post more later.
