The server for TPL was being updated this morning.  It is back, so here is today’s post.

“I have told you these things,

so that in me you may have peace.

In this world you will have trouble.

But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

~John 16:33~

Connor Corkern is continuing to improve.  Hopefully, he will be home soon.


Mrs. Flo Hatcher has had some good days, thanks to a new medication.  These good days have make it much easier for all her caregivers.  


Mrs. Catherine Yarborough is enjoying being at home again.  Her wonderful spirit is always encouraging.  

Pam Drury, interim youth/children’s minister at New Zion, was a passenger in a car yesterday that ran into the median at Wardline Exit because someone who got on I-55 wanted the space where their car was.  Thankfully, everyone was okay.  The did get a scary mud-ride though.


The service for David Wickham was a  wonderful testament to all those present about the real person David was.  I left the service thinking what a wonderful man he was and wishing I had known him better.  Please pray for his wife, his mother, his siblings, and other family members.




Read the Bible in 3025Haggai


Devotional, Scripture, and a Song


  • Praise be to the Lord my Rock,                                                                                                        who trains my hands for war,                                                                                                             my fingers for battle.                                                                                                                                                                 ~Psalm 144:1~
  • “Wherever He Leads, I’ll Go”


If you like cowboys and westerns, this certainly has wonderful images you’ll appreciate.


Thankfulness: Day 6

Today, I’m thankful for God’s faithfulness.  When I think about the memorial service I attended, the words of my friend “Cissy” as she faces life without her husband, the words of a new friend, Pam, who was in a vehicle “mud-riding” in the I-55 median yesterday, seeing faces at a medical clinic, etc., I know God’s faithfulness can take us through any situation we might be in.  I’m also reminded of the poem, “Footprints”.  I’m so glad we can have God with us in all the various trials of life.  Another thought is that He equips us for His purposes.


Have a fantastic Friday.
