Be completely humble and gentle;

be patient, bearing with one another in love.

~Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)~

(This is not the King James Version I learned as a child, but the message is the same.)



Cheryl Dillion had a setback Sunday, but is now back on the road to recovery from retina surgery.  Pray for continued good progress.



Velta Morris shared that her last medical check-up was good.  Let’s all continue to pray for good reports for her.  She and her family are so thankful for the blessing of another good report.
