“God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat,

will also supply you with all the seed you need

and will make it grow

and produce a rich harvest from your generosity.

He will always make you rich enough to be generous at all times,

so that many will thank God for your gifts

which they receive from us.

For this service you perform

not only meets the needs of God’s people,

but also produces an outpouring of gratitude to God.”

~2 Corinthians 9:10-12 (GNT)~

Please pray for Jeff Van who is is MD Anderson to begin his cancer treatment.

Pray also for Tommy Hood and his family as they are traveling through another round of treatment in Houston.

Andy Taylor‘s heart is back in rhythm and he is back at home thanking God for another blessing in his life. Let’s join with Andy and Betty in thanking God for the good results of Andy’s procedure yesterday.

My back procedure went well yesterday. Today, I continue to look forward to improvement whenever God chooses to bless me with it. The paperwork I received yesterday says to expect the improvement in the first two weeks. I see now that I will be working on my “patience timetable” for a while. That must be just the place God wants to to “live in” for a while.
