We had overnight guests from Texas arrive after we went to bed and sleeping a little late for my normal morning posting. I’m thankful for the company and hope they have a great day in Baton Rouge.
“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
Good news from MS this morning. Carol B. Sealey got to leave the hospital yesterday. She will still be getting therapy and other medical care. Please continue to pray for her and her family. Thanks to all of you for praying and to God for answering our prayers in a great way.

I apologize for getting my days confused this month. Our life just doesn’t run on a regular schedule now, so I often am confused about the day. At least that is what I am going to blame it on.
The Scriptures for September will be available at church tomorrow.
Counting tomorrow, there are only three more Sundays to turn in items for the LA Baptist Children’s Home Fall Food Round-up. This is our once-a-year opportunity to help them with food needs for the next year.
In September, we begin to think of the annual mission offering for Louisiana, the Georgia Barnette offering. Help us share the Good News in various ways in Louisiana. The 2019 theme is “Impart Truth Today”.
I hope you are enjoying shopping for the Operation Christmas Child “shoeboxes”. You can pack some for you as an individual or contribute the the church’s boxes. If you need a box or boxes, please let me know.
I want to end the day with a very big need. Pray for the people of Florida and other areas that will face destructive Hurricane Dorian in the next days. Pray for those who live in areas were the storm will go. Pray for the first responders who will be busy helping others. Pray for the others such as the electrical power people who will be working as soon as it is safe. I saw convoys for trucks going that way Wednesday. Pray for Louisiana Baptist and others who will be doing disaster relief for the coming months.
