So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

~Isaiah 41:10~

Clint Smith‘s procedure was long, but about 4:30 Wanda let me know the procedure went well.

Pray for the people of Florida as they begin the long process of trying to recover from Hurricane Ian. Pray for all. the first responders, rescue, power folks, and all the others who will be working there to help the people recover from Ian. We have experienced hurricanes and know a lot about what they are facing today, this week, and for months to come.

Thank-you for reading and praying. As an old song goes, “You can’t have one without the other”.
