Where there is no wood, the fire goes out;

and where there is no talebearer, strife ceases. 

~Proverbs 20:26 (NKJV)~

…the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things.

How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire!

~James 3:5~




Pray for Adrian Phillips.  He has been scheduled for more heart procedures today.  Let’s pray the doctors are able to achieve their goals.





David and I left before  6:30 yesterday morning and got home this morning at 3:30.  We did not get to have all the scheduled appointments because the lab test showed a blood level of 6.7.  David was sent to the ER for two units of blood.  It was given slowly and took 15 hours.  It’s good to be home.  David’s appointment with the new doctor has been rescheduled for Wednesday.

David and I are in agreement that as long and hard as the day was for us, we were right were God wanted us to be and He was right there with us!
