Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
~ Psalm 100:4-5 (NIV)~
Mr. Cete Dillon also is sick. He and “Miss” Ruby got medical care yesterday and hopefully will be able to enjoy their Thanksgiving company.
I got the Varnado name wrong yesterday. It is Maxine Varnado. I have not heard how her procedure went yesterday.
David and I visited the St. Helena Hospital and Nursing Home yesterday. We saw four sweet ladies. Two, Mrs. Juanita Pritchett and Mrs. Grace Chadwick, are from Roseland were we grew up, Two, Mrs. Margaret Callihan and Miss Shira Easley, are from Kentwood. We had four great visits and are so glad we made those visits. Believe it or now, they made us feel better! All four are improving. “Miss” Grace will be 95 Sunday!
I have another update on the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. The 1,126 boxes collected or dropped off in Kentwood were added to those from the surrounding area in Hammond. The new total was 13, 786. Those shoeboxes filled two trucks and part of another one. They may be at their next destination already.
“Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party – Yesterday, we had eleven ladies present including two birthday ladies. We had a great time.
Friday Morning Bible study will be in John 12. Feel free to join us at 10:00.
Children in Action WILL meet tonight at 6 P.M. I love to teach missions to these precious boys and girls.

Thankfulness, Day 23 – Today, I’m thankful for transportation. Some of my ancestors lived on this land four generations ago. When I consider it takes 15 minutes to get to Kentwood today and longer to get to many other places we travel, I am so thankful for my vehicle and the roads we travel on.
