4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 

5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

~1 Timothy 4:4-5~


I’m happy to report that Rob Anderson, Robert and Ora Lee Wilson’s son-in-law, is home from the hospital.  Let’s thank God for Rob’s improvement.

Let’s pray for the many travelers who will be going home today.  May each one be extra careful on this holiday travel day.
