“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,

because he has come to his people and redeemed them.

~Luke 1:68~

First, I want to tell you David is doing very well despite his terminal illnesses. He last blood work was amazing!. His blood level was 10.7 which meant he did not need procrit or a trip to Baton Rouge yesterday. The 31st will be four months without a procrit injection, by far the longest time yet. God has gifted us with David’s improved health and more days than the doctors expected. Thank-you, Lord! Thank-you, too, to all of you who continue to pray for him. We don’t know why David was chosen to have this time, but are so very thankful! God is our miracle maker!

I read, this morning, that Covid-19 is less dangerous, but more easily spread now. Stay alert. Let’s continue to be careful today and all during the holidays. I do have a new unspoken prayer request related to the virus. Please honor my request with a moment of prayer. Thank-you!

Charles Warren had a very difficult day yesterday. His family requests extra prayers for him and for them today.

Have you ever had a loved in the hospital at Christmas? I have. It’s hard to visit the hospital when it seems the whole world is happy, but you have a loved one you want to visit. Pray for those who have family members in the hospitals. Ask God for strength to be able to celebrate Jesus wherever you are and no matter the circumstances. God is worthy of our praise and worship even on our difficult days!

First Baptist Church, Kentwood, will have their regular prayer meeting service tomorrow and a special Christmas Eve service Thursday at 6:00 P.M. The Christmas Eve service will be thirty minutes long. I’m sure they plan to offer it online too for those who cannot attend in person. (I know other churches will have special services too. If you send me information about your church, I will share it tomorrow.)

Christmas is a very special time, because it represents when Jesus was born on earth. Include the Christmas story in your celebrations. Be sure to tell of out opportunity to spend eternity in heaven. Christmas without Christ is not Christmas at all!
