“If you wait for perfect conditions,

you will never get anything done.”

~Ecclesiastes 11:4 TLB~



Please pray for Lyla Dykes Wascom who was in the ER at North Oaks last night.



Pray for Linda and Jimmy Williams.  He continues to have heart problems and faces heart by-pass surgery.



Pray for Naomi Tolar.  Mr. Jimmy continues to be in rehab in Hammond.



Mrs. Bessie Hayden is home and doing well.  She was blessed to have therapists to help her get around in her home.  Her problems are just little obstacles for her to overcome.



Pray for others who have been or who are hospitalized.

I’m always thankful for people with caring spirits.  They check on those who are sick or needy and do what they can to be helpful.  They are especially appreciated during the holiday season.  They touch many lives in a way that pleased God.
