“A Game-changing Attitude”

Dr. Waylon Bailey

“And for this I rejoice.

And I shall rejoice.”

~Philippians 1:18b~


Hurricane Harvey is still a big prayer concern.  As we have watched the new, we see places we where a week and a half ago as we returned from Baylor.  This is hard to imagine and surely extremely difficult to live through.  Let’s keep praying for the areas of Texas where Harvey has invaded.  Today, we can add areas of Louisiana to the list. There are numerous ways to help the people.  I’ve been updating my Facebook page with helpful information so you can participate in helping those affected by this storm.  Over and over. I hear requests for prayer.

Some, if not all, of the area schools are closing for the day because the storm is moving more to the east as it enters Louisiana.  Check the website of specific schools if you need more information.

Even though it has been raining here for some time, the newest forecast shows the arrival of the rain and wind in our area to be around 8 A. M. today.  

May God calm the fears and concerns about the storm.



KK Huckaby shared this post about Josiah yesterday.

 Day 175: Wow…did I really just put 175??? Crazy! Josiah is doing well. He’s kind of plateaued the last couple of weeks with his oxygen requirements so they are going to increase his dosage of steroids to see if this will help wean him off of the oxygen because he’s still on the bubble CPAP. We are still waiting to hear what the plan is for his right kidney. There has been some back & forth about whether he can handle a major surgery without it causing more harm than good. So the alternative to reconstruction for the obstruction is to put in a nephrostomy tube/catheter to bypass the obstruction & save the function of his kidney. Hopefully we will have a plan in place tomorrow. As far as his “milestones”, he started laughing 2 weeks ago and it is the sweetest thing. He has no sound to his laugh but his face is so expressive! He started taking his pacifier some this week. He’s been working hard on holding items in his hands and on holding his head up. He doesn’t like to sleep when he knows there is stuff going…he’s just so social & doesn’t want to miss a thing! 💙💙💙


Pray for Koltyn Gafford and his mom as they travel to New Orleans today for a check-up.
