“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation
or shadow of turning.”
~James 1:17 NKJV~
David had three good doctor visits in the last week. I told you Dr. O’Sullivan, the retina specialist, said David’s eyes looked the best he has seen since we started there. Monday, David saw Dr. Paddock to get a lens prescription for the right eye. Glasses will be ready in a couple weeks. Wednesday, he saw the heart electro physiologist who did the heart ablations. If David has one more good visit, in three months, he will be released by that doctor. Thanking God for traveling this journey with us and carrying us when we had those days when the medical reports were so difficult to hear. We knew there would be more good days and thankfully, David is driving again, able to lift more, etc. How wonderful it is to get to this phase of life at the Christmas season!
I need to report that David and I delivered 639 stamped Christmas cards from Kentwood and Spring Creek churches to the Tangipahoa Parish Jail Wednesday. While waiting for someone to come out to us, a lady who came in shortly after us commented on my purse (that I had made for Momma). Later. she heard us talking to the prison employee about the cards. As we turned to leave, she very sincerely thanked us for providing the cards so the inmates can write to their family members. She was there to turn in some paperwork. Apparently, one of her children is an inmate. She was so appreciative of the cards you helped to provide. I will remember her comments as I affix stamps to cards next year and in the years to come. (Remember, right after Christmas is a good time to get some religious Christmas cards for next year.) . What a blessing it was to meet her and to see through to a mother’s heart! Thanks-you to all who provided cards or stamps for this mission project.
Yesterday, FBC Kentwood provided Christmas and a devotional for the residents of Kentwood Manor. Another group will be going on the 21st at 5 P.M. Please join us!
