But for you who revere my name,
the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays.
And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.
Please continue to pray for Douglas Warren. Today is day # 96 for him at North Oak fighting Covid-19. He seems to be making some improvement. Keep praying.
