Husbands, love your wives,
just as Christ loved the church
and gave himself up for her.
(Yesterday, while in Amite for a wake, I noticed the sign at Master Chef that always has wonderful thoughts. The sign said, “Husbands, love your spouse”. Later, I saw the other sign which also had a good message. I took the opportunity to speak to the owner, Tony LaMarca, and ask him who chose the sayings and congratulate him for putting such messages out for all to see. Tony said while getting ready for church Sunday he heard a TV pastor, Charles Stanley, talk about that. I expressed my appreciation. When this scripture came up on my computer this morning, I considered it to be a reminder of what happened yesterday and take the opportunity to ask you to encourage Tony and others who boldly express their faith in a public way.)
Bonnie Blue Baham, granddaughter for Rufus and Margie Williams, was involved in a head-on traffic accident in Hammond last night according to Bonnie’s mother, Scarlet. Bonnie was carefully checked out and sent home. Her mother is with her at home. Thankfully, Bonnie has no broken bones. Pray for Bonnie and her family.
Mr. John Alan Blackwell will be spending some time in Hood Memorial so he can get PT. Please pray for him as he continues to recover from his accident.
Mrs. Grace Chadwick is at the nursing home in Greensburg. Please pray for her.
Mrs. Mary Varnado, Gretchen Simpson’s mother, had a pacemaker now and will be recovering from the surgery in the coming weeks. Pray for her as she limits her activity.
Sherman Cutrer continues to improve following his last surgery and will probably get to return home next week. Keep pray for him and his caregivers.
I found this report of the accident on highway 38 yesterday. I’m sure you can identify prayer needs from both of these accidents.
