Wash and make yourselves clean.

Take your evil deeds out of my sight;

stop doing wrong.

Learn to do right;

seek justice.

Defend the oppressed.

Take up the cause of the fatherless;

plead the case of the widow.

~Isaiah 1:16-17 (NIV)~



Miss Fay Shoemaker greatly enjoyed her going away party.  Pray for her as she makes final preparations for her new life.  Next week, she will be making some big changes.


Gloria Gill is still having problems with A-fib.  Her doctor is still considering a pacemaker, but is watching for effects of new medication.  Please continue to pray.

Facebook post written by Kathy Pedeaux and shared by my sister and niece.

We found him this morning about 9 am. When we found him we realized he had already left this world and is now with Jesus where he is safe, warm, and full of great joy.

If you knew Peter you would know how anointed he was in the area of compassion. He would not want us to be sad, because for Peter, to be in God’s presence was his favorite place. And that is where he will be forever.

However, we will be a people with completely broken hearts for a while because of the great gift that has been lost. But we will see him again!

This is our hope and surety as those who are in Christ. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone comes through a tragedy like this without a real relationship with Jesus.

So, if you don’t know Jesus, ask him into your heart tonight and experience a joy that you have never known. He is real, and heaven is real! This would make Peter so happy.

Once again, thank you to all of our new hero’s out there, many of which we do not even know. Unbelievable. You sacrificed time, money, resources, time with your families, and allowed yourself to experience our suffering. There is no greater gift that you could give when you laid down your lives for Our Precious Peter.

Love to all. I pray that you will be blessed and that you will reap all the love that you have sown into our family.



The Friday morning Bible study will meet this morning at 10 A.M. at FBC, Kentwood.  You are invited to attend.  We will be physically warm and warm in heart!


Read the Bible

  • Genesis 15-18
  • Proverbs 2
  • Matthew 4
  • I realized last night that the first day we were to focus on our Creator.  This plan gives you a day to focus on something in particular each week.  I suppose that would also be a good way to “catch-up” on any lost readings.


If you would like to visit/attend a FBC Sunday School class, you may contact me for information about classes or you can contact the church office or check out the church web-site.  We have classes for children and youth of various ages and multiple adult classes you might want to pick from.  Come, visit around until you find “your spot”.


I was able to read the last chapter of Lottie Moon to my children in the missions class Wednesday night.  She had an interesting life serving as a missionary in China.  She left a legacy in our missionary work and was honored when the annual offering for international missions was named in her honor.  The first offering was for missionaries in China only.  Now, we can send many more missionaries around the world because of the Lottie Moon Offering.  You can support this massive effort by giving at any Southern Baptist Church.


Stay warm.  I think we will have a short break before we get another cold time.  Get out while it is warmer.  Stock up for the next round of cold weather.  Ask about helping someone to prepare for the coming cold.
