Oh give thanks unto The Lord;
for He is good:
because His mercy endureth forever.

“Doodle” learned she is cancer free. When one medicine quit working, her doctor always tried another one. Now he says to her to come back for scans periodically for the rest of her life. What a blessing!
If all goes well, Larry man get to go home today. I’ll let you know later.

Daily Devotional – Our Daily Bread – “Attending To Our Words”
Moral Stories – “Let Go of Your Stresses”
Hymn of the Day – “Near to the Heart of God”
I think this hymn should calm our stresses! Can you imagine any other place that would be more calming?
Thankfulness – Day 30 – Thankful People
Today, I’m thankful for those of you who “Count (ed)Your Blessings” this month. I’m glad you realized all the blessings God has sent your way and took the time to let Him know you appreciated them. May we have a thankful spirit all year long, whether we write out our thankfulness or not. I’m sure God appreciates our thankfulness today and every day of the year.
Do some things today to make tomorrow flow smoothly. I think Sunday is not to be a day of confusion.
