Be very careful how you live.

Do not live like those who are not wise.

Live wisely.

I mean that you should use every chance you have for doing good, because these are evil times.

So do not be foolish with your lives.

But learn what the Lord wants you to do.” 

~Ephesians 5:15-17 ICB~




Pray for Mrs. Mildred Birch as she has a back procedure at North Oaks this morning.  Pray the surgery is successful in relieving her back pain.




Carol Bennett Sealey had another round of dialysis and a unit of blood.  She tolerated these procedures and is back in ICU.




Pray for the family of Mr. Kent Davis who lived in our neighborhood.  Pray for his wife as she makes decisions about her life without him.





I’m thankful we were able to attend church yesterday and even to eat lunch with friends.  Many friends made a special effort to speak with David.  They will never know how much that means to us.  We get to remember them in our conversations and prayers.

I’m so thankful for my sister, Julie, who has chosen to make many trips to the doctors with us.  I’m also thankful for our son and his family who spent part of last week with us and for our Texas granddaughter who was also with us last week.  Please pray for her as she begins a summer job as a medical assistant today.  Our daughter-in-law and two Georgia grandchildren will spent this week at Centrifuge.  I’m so thankful for these family members and the meaningful lives they have chosen to live.




Read and Write the Bible – “Who I Am in Christ” – I Corinthians 12: 27-31




Pray for all the students, teachers, and other workers as VBS begins this morning at FBC, Kentwood.  Several other churches are also having VBS this week, mostly in the evenings.  I know there will be a number of students who will get a “double dose” of VBS this week.  I think that is good.  We never heard of that when our children were of VBS age, but I see nothing wrong with getting the kids in church twice a day all week.

God has given us this Monday!  What will we give to Him though others this Monday?
