“Her children rise up and call her blessed….” 

~Proverbs 31:28~





Adrian Phillips visited a cardiologist yesterday and has set up an appointment for an angiogram next Tuesday at Baton Rouge General Hospital.  Lauree described their recent life as a “roller coaster”.  Many of you can relate.  Please pray for Adrian, Lauree, and their family.




Mr. “Cete” Dillon is home again.  Pray he continues to improve.

Yesterday’s weather was a “humdinger”!  Pray for McComb residents and others who sustained damage.  Thank God for keeping people safe despite all the downed trees, electrical lines, damaged homes, businesses, etc.   Thank God for the safety he provided despite the physical damage.  Our God is mighty!



Read and Write the Bible Today – Matthew 6:6



Our weather pattern seems to include more wet days.  I pray for safety for those at home and those who have to leave their homes for jobs. education, appointments, etc.  I also pray for adults to be able to handle the weather in a way that teaches children how to safely respond to such situation.
