“Your word is a lamp for my feet,

a light on my path.”

~Psalm 119:105 (NIV)~

Mrs. Mildred Birch (90) will have rotator cuff surgery after Christmas. That gives us time to pray for a successful surgery and a good recovery. That gives her time to spend with her family during the holiday season.

Bryan Tate is again in MDA with pneumonia. Please pray for him.

Beth Graham Lee’s father-in-law, who lived east of Amite, passed away. I’ll post an obituary when it becomes available.

Thankfulness – Day 10

Today, I’m thankful for a fire in the firepit, company from Virginia, a good visit, and BBQ last night. What a great way to visit with our son-in-law whom we haven’t seem since last Thanksgiving. The nighttime temperature, no mosquitoes, and watching a new stray cat helped make it a memorable evening. Sounds like we might need to do a repeat tonight!

Today’s prayer focus is on those who don’t see any reason to be thankful. May we all learn to count our blessings, the large ones and the small ones, every day. My mother-in-law was a wonderful example of someone who appreciated the “little things of life”. To her, they were the big things! May we all be more thankful to God and to others.
