He gives strength to the weary

and increases the power of the weak.

~Isaiah 40:29~


I’ve seen so many weary people in doctor offices and hospitals.

We’re going again today.

Lord, help people to feel your strength as they go through difficult times.

Please pray for David’s family this week.  His brother, Jimmy, is having a procedure this morning in Baton Rouge.  He nephew by marriage passed away and will be remembered at a memorial service Thursday.

Thanks to those who gave blood for Mr. James Miller yesterday.  You can always go to a blood center and donate blood in Mr. James’ name.


Put a spring in your step this cold winter day.  Put a smile on your face.  “Let Others See Jesus in You”.
