“We don’t know everything,

and our prophecies are not complete . . .

Now all we cansee of God is like a cloudy picture in a mirror.

Later we will see him face to face.

We don’t know everything, but then we will, j

ust as God completely understands us.”

~1 Corinthians 13:9, 12 (CEV)~

Yesterday, my procedure was delayed so we didn’t get home as early as we expected and I didn’t post as planned. All went well for me. The anesthesia lasted longer than last month. I got an hour and a half nap when we got home and felt better after that. Thank-you for your prayers.

I learned of these deaths:

Mr. A.J. Harris of Baton Rouge – father of Susan Belgard of Chesbrough

Mr. Ted Lewis of Lewiston

Mrs. Norma Muse of Kentwood

Mrs. Mary Young Miller of Kentwood

Thankfulness – Day 16

I am thankful for those in the medical profession. Even though many of us have chosen other professions, we count of those in the medical profession. As we have gotten onder, David and I have done so more often than in the earlier days. Sometimes medical professionals help to identify problems and make us more comfortable. Sometimes they save our lives!

Thankfulness – Day 17

Today, I am thankful for all the people who work behind the scenes or simply do jobs that are not medical, but are necessary for the medical facilities to run smoothly. They might park your vehicle, greet you at the door, help you to do computer check-in, clean the restrooms, deliver food, prepare food, roll you out to your vehicle, cut the grass, trim shrubbery, wash the linens, sweep and mop floors, fill water containers, man the front desk, give out masks, and many other behind-the-scenes, but necessary, jobs.

Operation Christmas Child: Today will be our third day to function as a drop-off location for our area. What a blessing it is to help all the shoeboxes get packed in cartons and ready for their next destination. We received 779 shoeboxes Monday and 106 yesterday. Today, we will be receiving boxes from 3:00-5:00 P.M.. We appreciate our “regular” volunteers and those who are serving for the first time this year. There is a job for everyone.

May you have a blessed day!
