Last week, Mr. J.D. Smith told me he was having circulation issues.  Now, he is hospitalized at St. Tammany to have his circulation improved.  Let’s pray correctable solutions can be found and used.




Cheryl Hughes Green had four by-passes done yesterday.  All went well.  Today, we need to pray for her recovery from surgery to go well.

We are expected to get more rain.  Most of us don’t expect flooding, but if you should drive to an area with water running across the road, turn around.  Be safe!  Pray for those who do have flooding and help them if you can.
