Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

~Hosea 6:3~

When I saw this Facebook memory from five years ago, I had to share it again.

David received another good report yesterday! We are so thankful! The doctor was as excited for David as we were. God was given all the credit.

Now, I go to the doctor more than he does. Today, it only for routine blood work.

Please continue to pray for Jewel Kay Cutrer and her family. Pray for comfort and peace.

I have been recovering from all the company and didn’t remember until yesterday afternoon that in December we read one chapter of Luke each day. Today, we will read three chapters to catch up. I hope you will too. We will be ready to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas.
