Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
Today’s obituary is about Lalou, another one of my former students. It is always hard to post these. I recall that I called her “LouLou”, with her permission.

Today, David and I made our weekly trip to Ochsner on O’Neal in Baton Rouge. We were pleased to learn he will continue on the same medication and the same Monday schedule. MDS is not the big problem; the nonalcoholic cirrhosis will be more troublesome. David got his 18th unit of blood while we were there. We go back next Monday. We continue to appreciate all your prayers.
I learned a new acrostic today.
F – Face
E – Everything
A – and
R – Rise
That’s our goal!
