Cast your cares on the LORD

and he will sustain you;

he will never let the righteous

be shaken.

Today I want to share my gratitude to David (and God) or keeping us warm and with water, but no broken pipes, during the LONG, COLD days we just came through. David made it all look easy. He allowed me to stay in the warmth of our home while he put on his coat and hat and checked everything several times a day. What a blessing he has been during the last week. This follows seven months of caring for me after I managed to break three feet this summer. He cared for me all day long daily when I was unable to maneuver myself at home and managed to get me to the doctor appointments looking presentable. I’ve never been so dependent! Those weren’t my greatest days, but I certainly had a good caregiver, nurse, cook, driver, and companion for those seven months. Today, I am thankful to be able to care for myself and to partially resume my household duties. Thank-you David . Thank-you God!!!

Today’s Prayer Focus

Think of the people who make life easier and better for you. You will probably be able to list several who do so in a month’s time. Say thanks to them and to God for them. It would be nice to add them to your daily prayer journal.

BAPTIST PRESS contains a list of the top ten most read articles in 2022.

OCC Purchases – David and I have been doing some shopping for OCC 2023. We have purchased coloring books, plastic cups, calculators, stuffed animals, and miscellaneous toys. It’s has already been fun and productive.


Tonight, you can be blessed by attending Bible Study at FBC, Kentwood. We begin at 6 P.M. You will find yourself warm and surrounded by lots of friendly faces. God’s Word will be presented and explained by Bro. Darryl. The topic is “Faith and Forgiveness” with the Scripture passage of Romans 3: 21-31. You might even want to read those verses ahead of time.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
