“Don’t worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will bring its own worries.
Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
~Matthew 6:34 (NLT)~
Update on Bryan Tate (written by Rita Tate)
He has had pneumonia four times out of the last 6 months we’ve been home. Just never got better then he’d be in hospital again. Luckily (?) he got it again while in Houston . Not only did they treat it they went after the “ why”. Test, CT’s, broncoscope. They found he has fungal pneumonia. Flushed his lungs and put him on strong antifungal antibiotic by infusion. . He will take this infusio three days a week for a while. Thankfully the infusion can be done here i. LA under the care of Dr Saux. The infusion is causing renial problems so that has to be watched too. This is very hard to get rid of. He was disappointed that he couldn’t get rid of the pic lines but they are needed for these treatments. Now that he’s off the chemo and when he’s through with the infusions he should get back to normal ( Describe normal) Thanks to all who have prayed, called, visited, fed dogs, mowed yards, etc. We have been blessed. Big thank you to Tate and Miranda for housing us and taking care of us for 2.5 years. Praises! The end is in sight.
Mrs. Doris Young was moved from Greensburg to her home yesterday. Please continue to pray for her and for her family.

Thankfulness – Day 20
Today, I’m thankful for REST. I cannot believe I just wrote that! I’ve never been one for naps. I was more like the Energizer Bunny. I just kept going and going. I must have aged or something drastic like that. We have worked four days as a drop-off location for OCC Shoeboxes. Mostly, I sit and do paperwork, greet donors, answer questions, etc., but there are other times when the work gets more physical. No, I did not move those heavy cartons of boxes like the men did. Physical work simply isn’t as easy as it was when I was younger. I remember being told that would happen, but didn’t really believe it. Yesterday, after five hours at the church and regular responsibilities at home before that, I was tired when we got home. What did I do? I SAT for several hours, getting up only when necessary. That was my rest. I needed it! Believe it or not, that REST was very helpful. Oh well, I think I have found a new past-time. I will put a basket of OCC crafting by my chair and make my resting time profitable. That way my resting will be extra satisfying!
