Thursday

Don’t repay evil for evil.

Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you.

Instead, pay them back with a blessing.

That is what God has called you to do,

and he will grant you his blessing.

~1 Peter 3:9 NLT, 2nd ed.~

 

David and I had a good visit with Johnny Belgard Tuesday.  Four months in Ochsner was a long time.  He is looking better.  We thank God for his return to good health and for all your prayers for him.  One of the benefits of his improved health is the opportunity to again teach his Sunday School class at FBC, Amite.

Kathy said that Chris Wales may be able to return home tonight depending on how well he does in physical therapy.  Pray for Chris as he adjusts to his new knee,

Linda K. Graves is in Kentwood until Friday.  Thank God she has this opportunity to visit with friends and church family for a few days.

Thankfulness Day 10 – I’m thankful for my grandson who has many outdoor skills/ love for country living, even though he was not raised in the country, leadership skills without being domineering, and is also very tenderhearted.

I hope you enjoyed “meeting my three grandsons”.  Tomorrow, I will begin to introduce you to my three granddaughters.
