But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us,
not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.
He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Please pray for the families that have had recent deaths. The days following deaths when the weather is difficult seem to be more stressful. Pray a little extra for these families.
Read the Bible – I Peter 3-5 and Psalm 34

Lottie Moon Week of Prayer – Day 7 – “What God Has Done” – https://www.imb.org/day-7/
Days seem much longer when we cannot go about our normal activities. I’m thankful to be able to say I have “normal” days. I also think of those who live in war zones and for other reasons do not know “normal”. I’m also thankful for those who worked hard yesterday and continue to work hard to help us all get back to “normal”. Yesterday, as we were talking about the electrical workers out working, I was reminded of growing up knowing that when the weather made life difficult my neighbor, Johnny Pritchett, who worked for the power company and my daddy, Grant Smith, who worked for the phone company world be called upon to help restore “normal” to the lives of others.
Let’s show our appreciation to all those who step up and help us in our times of difficulty – electrical workers, telephone workers, police, EMTs, firemen, pastors, truck drivers, store owners and employees, hospital workers, military, etc. It doesn’t hurt us at all to say “thank-you”, but it certainly encourages others.
Be an encourager!
