[The Armor of God]
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

World Down Syndrome Day 2020 & Josiah Huckaby
Not how we planned to spend it. We didn’t get to wear our cute shirts or crazy socks but we did have fun. Although we sure are missing daddy! I’m just glad technology allows us the opportunity to see each other during hospital stays.
Josiah has definitely been making improvements on his oxygen. They did quite a bit of weaning today. Hopefully he will continue to do well on the new oxygen settings tonight.
To God be the glory! 💙💛💙💛💙

Saint Elmo Saxon, Jr.
February 22, 1943 – March 20, 2020
A resident of Kentwood, LA, passed away on Friday, March 20, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He was born February 22, 1943 in Foxworth, MS and was 77 years of age. He was a husband, father, brother and friend who was better known as Daddy, Honey, Elmo or simply “Saint.” He was a man of many talents, loved the outdoors and was an American patriot having served in the U. S. Army. His world was his family showing his love every day with his abounding love. He traveled throughout the world, many times alone, sometimes with his love and family, bringing back many stories and souvenirs from the trips. Being a man that loved to work, he taught his work ethic to anyone who would loan him a hand, follow him around, learning with every step. If you were lucky enough to attend a Saxon gathering where family and friends were, you caught him in his glory. He is survived by his wife, Kay Crawford Saxon; 3 daughters, Milissa Pirnar, Tissie Gorman, and Angela Saxon; son, Chris Saxon and his wife, Brigitte Saxon; grandchildren, Brugge Gorman, Dillon Gorman, Skylar Pirnar, Noah Steptore, Domonique Pierce, Anna Barber, Stone Saxon, and River Saxon; great-grandchildren, Abygayle, Anslee and Aniston Rae Barber; 2 sisters, Linda Russell and Mary Johnson; brother, John Wayne Saxon. Preceded in death by parents, Saint Elmo Saxon, Sr. and Johnnie Mae Forbes Saxon; son, Brian O’Neal Saxon; daughter, Tina Marie Saxon; and brother, Linnie Saxon. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the funeral and viewing will be private. For an online guestbook, visit http://www.mckneelys.com.
Most of us will be at home today and watching our church service via live-streaming video. Many will not have the opportunity to attend a Sunday School class. There are several option:
- Each person prepares their lesson and discusses it.
- One person teaches the family each week.
- Watch a video and discuss it as a family group.
Bible project will be giving us a video to watch as a family each week. Then, discussion can follow. The lesson for today is “Generosity”.
- I suggest doing your Sunday School during your church’s regular Sunday School time.
Churches present the worship service online.
- Most churches will present the worship service online, many of them doing so for the first time today.
- If your church is not live-streaming this morning or if you choose to watch multiple services as we did last week. you will have plenty of opportunities. On Facebook, join Kentwood First Baptist Church at 10:30 A.M., 6 P.M. today, and 6 P.M. Wednesday. I think following the normal schedule will keep us from feeling like we are missing out as much.
Now that hospitals are not allowing any visitors like the special living facilities, we need to pray extra hard for both the patients/residents and the family members. What a change this is!
David and I haven’t been out in days. He makes a lot of calls to check on people. If you have a name for me to add to The Prayer Link, please send me a message like Danielle Thornton did yesterday. I will be glad to add your prayer concerns.
Here’s my song list for today. I hope you sing along.
- “The Doxology” (Remember to add the “Amen” at the end.)
- “In Times Like These”
- “One Day at a Time”
- “Make Me a Blessing”
- “In His Hands”
Make this “Lord’s Day” special and one you and your family will remember for a long time.
