“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

~Exodus 20:12~

This was one of the first verses I learned as a young child.

I was told Luther Terrell’s aunt who lives next door to him fell and broke a hip. She had surgery in Hattisburg yesterday. Please pray for recovery and healing.

Pray for Bryan Tate as he has testing at MD Anderson today.

The Young family of five from Greensburg lost a camper trailer to a big gust of wind yesterday. The camper is on it’s side in a ravine and cannot be moved yet due to more winds. The family is safe and tucked into a motel for now. God watched over them and kept their truck from going with the the trailer. Thank God for protecting them and and providing for their needs. Pray as they “count their blessings” and make future decisions.
