The LORD is my strength and my defense ;

he has become my salvation.

~Psalm 118:14~



I heard that tomorrow is homecoming at FBC, Kentwood.  I’ve been out so much that I know no details.  If someone will fill me in, I will post it.  Thanks!

Read the Bible – Proverbs 19:17 & 22:9
Baptist Press has some great articles today.
I wasn’t there, but I understand the Gathiers had a wonderful concert at FBC, Covington last night.  They are one of my favorite groups.  I always try to catch them on the television on Saturday evenings.
Please pray for all the young families who are not bringing up their children in church and keeping them there as long as they live at home.  This article one of  several I have read lately that broke my heart.
