“The King will reply,
‘Truly I tell you,
whatever you did for one of the least
of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me.
This season is about giving in many ways, not receiving.
I’ll try to do some catching up….
Ora Lee Wilson had outpatient surgery and is home recovering. She won’t be down any longer than necessary.
Andy Taylor is staying in during this colder weather and getting better following the procedure he had Tuesday of last week. He and the doctor both think he is getting stronger.
Kenneth Birch‘s had surgery at Our Lady of the Lake yesterday. He’s still in ICU, but will hopefully be able to be moved to a room soon. The medical staff plans to get him up tomorrow.
George Eddie Lee got home late this afternoon. I’m sure he was glad to see his own chair after being in the hospital for over a week.
Coach Elton Shaw is getting his strength back after his brief hospital stay last week.
Mrs. Kathryn Kuss is more homebound than before. Pray for her as she adjusts to not getting out as much.
Hazel Allen will be in rehab in Hammond for a while. Pray for her and for her family.
Mr. Earl and “Miss” Nadine Council are in good general health although both of them have/are facing some minor issues. They send their greeting to all their Kentwood friends.
