“I have not yet reached my goal, and I am not perfect.

But Christ has taken hold of me.

So I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize.” 

~Philippians 3:12 CEV~



Pray for Buddy and Eleanor Morris as he has a scan at Ochsner on Jefferson Hwy.




Pray for Frances Gay as she has knee surgery and goes through the recovery process.




David has battled a cough for a while.  After a very difficult night Monday, he went to the ER at Ochsner on O’Neal yesterday..  A few hours of testing there and and antibiotic medication has changed his world (and mine).  I’m so thankful for his improvement and the rest we were able to get because of his improvement.




Another member of the Dykes family has passed away.  Lila Dykes Watson‘s obituary is not available yet.  I will post it when it becomes available.
