He said: “In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me.

From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.

~Jonah 2:2~


I hope many of you have electricity again. Even when we got electricity yesterday, my site, TPL, wouldn’t open. I’m thankful it is working this morning.

I’m also thankful to have electricity, Demco workers and others who are still out helping neighbors and friends, a husband who checked our house and other building and helped us make it through with no issues that we are aware of, highway department workers who cut tree limbs at 7:30 last night to prevent future problems, a gas stove, insulation, a greenhouse that seems to be full of living plants, warm food to keep us going, a cell phone that worked in a limited manner, a stash of water, etc. Most of all, I’m thankful to the good Lord above who watched over us all.

Check you your neighbors, friends, and family. You may be able to help them get through the present and future cold weather conditions. Just because we have power and are okay doesn’t mean everyone has progressed as we have.

Our highway has been almost empty. Today, say special prayers as more and more people attempt to get out. Pray for drivers to have wisdom if they must get out today. (Today’s Prayer Focus)

Pray for Mrs. Dora Magee, who has recently had cancer surgery and is now home and awaiting biopsy reports.

Both Bill and Velta Morris are making improvement with their health conditions. Continue to pray for them.

Charles Warren and others continue their battle with Covid-19. Many prayers are needed.

Read about how churches are responding to the current weather conditions and other timely news. Maybe, we can claim some of their ideas and apply them.

Keep praying and working. This weather dilemma is not over. Be sure to thank God for all the ways he has walked with us and guided us this this week.
