Now may the Lord of peace himself
give you peace at all times and in every way.
The Lord be with all of you.
May each of you have the peace of the Lord today.
No matter whether you candidate won or lost, the Lord is on His throne!
Thankfulness, Day 9 – Today, I’m thankful for a grandchild who is lovable, athletic, and outgoing. No name given, just wonderful qualities he possesses.
Children in Action will meet tonight at 6 P.M. at FBC, Kentwood. If your children and/or grandchildren have not been coming, tonight is a wonderful night to start. We include boys and girls from age 3 – fifth grade.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
~Isaiah 1:18 (NIV)~
