“I once thought these things were valuable,

but now I consider them worthless

because of what Christ has done.” 

~Philippians 3:7 NLT~

 

 

 

Update on Mrs. Peggy Luce from her daughter:

My mom is doing pretty well today. She says thank y’all so much for the prayers, and she would like for you to pray for her tomorrow as she is going to the doctor. We will know more after her appointments. The Lord has surely watched over her and is the Great Physician! All the thoughts and prayers mean so much to us! 😘😘 She had to joke a bit tonight and said to please not put her picture on fb lol! Glad she’s joking about it!!!

 

 

David had labs, saw a new doctor, and got his Procrit shot yesterday.  While at Ochsner, he learned his blood count was 9.8, the highest it has been since the MDS diagnosis.  We are so thankful for the medical staff and treatment David has received.  We are also thankful for the prayers many of you have faithfully uttered daily on his behalf.  We believe in prayer and are especially thankful for all of you who have prayed for us since David started this medical journey.

 

 

 

Yesterday, we saw three Seymour sisters that I taught years ago.  We had a brief, but sweet visit.  One of them has had cancer.  We have prayed for her as she received treatment.  She looks great and is doing well now.  They have pray for us, just as we have prayed for them.  That’s what it is all about!

We also saw another couple we know.  Although they are younger than we are, life has also started to have some medical issues for them.  I ask you to remember to pray for these friends too!

Yesterday, it rained on us all the way to Baton Rouge in early morning traffic and back home again.  I thank God for watching over us.  Although I drove locally almost daily to get to work, the grocery store, etc., David drove us any time we were together.  It has been a big change for me to drive all the time, especially to all the places David has needed to go for medical attention.  I have had some family members to help with the driving, but have done most of it.  Sickness brings about numerous life changes that we don’t expect.  God has been faithful to “ride” with us on the highway and all the other new experiences too!  Many of you have offered to drive us and do things for us.  We appreciate your offers and your help.  It humbles us, but makes us appreciate sweet friendships so much more.  Thanks for being there for us and for others when we reach our limitations.  May God richly bless you for your ministry to us and to others.

Monday Addition

KK Huckaby shared this.  Please pray.

So the original plan was for Josiah to be discharged tomorrow but Friday he ended up with a stomach bug that is going around and they aren’t sure if we will be going home tomorrow or not. As of a couple of hours ago, Job now has the stomach bug and it’s hitting him hard! We definitely need some prayers for quick healing, that I don’t get it, & that Josiah doesn’t end up with another round of it.

Monday

Praise the LORD.Blessed are those who fear the LORD, who find great delight in his commands.

~Psalm 112:1~

Saturday

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

~2 Peter 1:16~

 

 

 

We have prayed for Dollie Frazier and her eye problems recently.  We need to continue to do so.  She has been having mini strokes in both eyes and is now hospitalized at North Oaks to help her save her vision.

Calling all Prayer Warriors I am now having strokes in my right eye as well. Dr Rhodes put me in the hospital at North Oakes for a few days to try and save my right eye. Thank you for prayer. God is Master Physcian!

Let’s support her with our prayers.

Two Rivers’ WMU will meet Monday at FBC, Kentwood.  Attend to learn.  Leave to do missions.  Keep your church involved.

 

 

 

One week from today, at 1 P.M., FBC Kentwood will have their packing party.  You are invited to come pack and pray for shoeboxes.  Wear your Christmas colors and bring a Christmas “goodie” to share with the other packers.  Packing always goes quickly, so don’t be late.

 

 

 

Yesterday, I shared that I believe in praying.  A reader responded with example of how prayer has working in their family.  The more we believe, the more we will pray!  I had an older friend who now resides in her heavenly home.  She told me for several years about all the things she wished she could still do, but couldn’t.  She always ended by saying she could still pray.  She faithfully prayed for my family and the families of many of you.  As soon as David and I would get settled in to visit with her, she would begin to ask about those she had been praying for.  She wanted her prayers to be timely and consistent with the current needs.  I miss my friend, but I greatly miss her Christian example.  I’m thankful for the lessons I learned from her.

 

 

 

Thanks for reading and praying today.

Friday

Nothing is wrong at our house today.  Our schedule has been turned around though.  The Scripture below about being downcast does not describe us today, but the portion about hope does.  It was sent to me today.

 

 

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

                                                                ~Psalm 42:11~

 

 

 

Scripture Writing for 10-18-19 – 2 Corinthians 5: 15-21

 

 

 

I certainly am enjoying the cooler temperatures this morning.  I hope you are too!  David went to sit on the porch, but came right back in.  God blessed us with needed rain and cooler temperatures this week.  I’m thankful!

 

 

Pray for Micah Simpson and his family.  Micah will be leaving for the Marines during November.  Pray for the family as they adjust to Micah not being there.  Pray for Micah as he learns all about being a marine.

 

 

 

Our oldest grandson, Miles Hatchel, has joined the US Air Force.  He doesn’t know when he will be leaving yet.  My daddy, who was in the Army Air Force during WWII, will be happy about this choice.

 

 

 

Pray for all those in our military.  Be proud and thankful they love our country and are willing to serve.

 

 

 

Do you believe in prayer?

Betty Taylor shared that her sister, Glenda,  has continued to improve and was released from the hospital yesterday.

 

 

 

Carol Ann Cleveland shared that her daughter, Betty Rainey, had the shunt implanted and was doing so well she went to a regular room rather than ICU following her surgery.

 

 

 

Andy Taylor’s niece had a lung to collapse for the second time.  She’s better, but was informed her lung will probably collapse again.  Pray her her lung to improve and for the number of collapses to be fewer than the doctor expects.

 

 

 

Smiley Conerly had a MRI done yesterday and will get the results in about a week.  Pray for him as he searches for answers.

 

 

 

Buddy Morris got another good report yesterday.  His good reports are not what the doctor expected when Buddy was diagnosed.  Thank God for the improvement Buddy has made since that first diagnosis.

 

 

 

Josiah Huckaby  continues to improve, but is still dependent on oxygen, which means he will be hospitalized for a while.  Thank God that Josiah has two caring parents who chose him knowing he would require special care.  Josiah was blessed to be chosen by Job and KK!

 

 

 

Ladies, make plans to be at the Two River’s WMU meeting at FBC, Kentwood Monday.  Leadership will meet at 9:00 before the 10:00 meeting.  All ladies are invited.  A covered dish meal will follow the meeting.  I thank God for the ladies who stepped up and are doing an excellent job in my absence.
