Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
~Psalm 95:1-2 (NIV)~
I’ll start off this morning with news of a new baby. Raymond and Brandy Cutrer are now the parents of Ramsi Shaye Cutrer who was born yesterday. Ramsi weighed 8 lbs. 4 ox. and was 21 in. long. Both mother and baby are doing well.
Pray for Ginger Simmons as she has surgery today to correct some back issues.
Macy Lee, the daughter to Tim and Beth Graham Lee, had emergency surgery yesterday to remove her appendix. Pray for a good recovery time.
David got a call Saturday night about an infectious disease, Cat Scratch Fever, which does not work well with David’s present condition. The doctor wanted David to check into the hospital Sunday and plan to stay for six weeks to receive a strong antibiotic.. David told him we would be at the clinic Monday for his weekly injection. Yesterday, with the vehicle packed to stay for a long time, we saw the hematologist who checked into the situation. David was sent home after receiving his injection and giving more blood for testing. We will be waiting for test results and praying for a better option than six weeks of hospitalization. Join us in praying for the lab results and good decisions. On a very position note, David’s blood level and weight are holding strong. We returned home with more reasons to be thankful!
David will have a procedure on the 28th in Covington to again look for a place where there might be a blood leakage. Please add that date and procedure to your prayers. The next four procrit injections are also scheduled. We are thankful to all the medical people who are working to improve David’s health.
Read the Bible

I received this report on the Operation Christmas Child Collection at FBC, Kentwood. A total of 1409 shoeboxes were packed in 86 cartons and send on their way to Dallas and eventually to boys and girls in other countries. I’m not sure how many churches and other groups participated, but I will share that information when I have it. Thanks again to those who “stepped-up” when David and I became unavailable to do this special task. You made it a success! To God be the glory! Statistic show that each shoebox impacts seven people. That’s almost 10,000 people! Yeah to everyone who packed a shoebox and helped in any way.
Be sure to name some of the many blessings in your life this Thanksgiving season.
