This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.

I had trouble getting this to post earlier, so I trying again.
This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
~Isaiah 48:17 (NIV)~
Today, as we continue to pray for all the local needs, I would like to add two names of people some of you many not know.
- Carl Wayne Stevens is having more health issues. He is living in northern Mississippi now. Please pray for him and his family.
- Margie Wilkinson Cutrer is from Amite. She is in Lakeview in Covington with some heart concerns. Your prayers will be appreciated.

It takes many people working together to do what we do for Operation Christmas Child and the jail ministry. Today, once again I have to thank a couple for their generous donation of items needed.
It’s time to focus on the Georgia Barnett Offering for state (Louisiana) missions. http://waylonbailey.com/2016/09/17/who-is-georgia-barnett-and-what-difference-does-it-make/
Have a wonderful day as you serve Him.
“Look, he is coming with the clouds,”and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.
”So shall it be! Amen.
You may, or may not, remember when I asked for prayer for the Moore family, Mike and Robin. Robin would come to Roseland to visit relatives when we were children. I still love to see her when she comes south from West Monroe to visit. Robin’s husband, Mike, had a tumor behind one eye. His doctors have kept watch on him and always gave a good report, until now! His cancer is now in the liver. Please pray for Mike Moore and his family as they begin a difficult journey.
Today is See You at the Pole day! Students across the nation will gather at their flag poles to pray and to be a witness for the Lord. Locally, the students will also meet at The Lighthouse of FBC, Kentwood tonight to continue their celebrations. Students of various schools and churches are expected to be in attendance. Pray for our students this morning, tonight, and each day, that they will be bold witnesses.

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, thankful for your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”
Today, I want to focus on thankfulness.
I’ve been noticing a vase I used in 2015. Each day of the year I wrote something I was thankful for. The colored papers are stored in a clear vase with a label, “2015”, and a ribbon. I’m going to wait a while longer before I draw out a paper each day and remind myself of my many reasons to be thankful.
Probably, all of us know “Count Your Blessings”. We don’t have to wait for a special reason to write your blessings. It can be done on any day of the year. November is a good month to be thankful, but any other month is also good. It’s just a matter of attitude.
I’ve been going over some of the big things I am thankful for as well as many of the small ways I am thankful. I hope you can find time to do this too. You can choose to do this at random time periods, or in any organized way you choose. I believe if you do, you will be singing “Count Your Blessings”. It works the opposite way too. If you sing “Count Your Blessings”, you will actually begin to focus on those blessings.
This page gives you the words to the song and some Scripture references to read and meditate on.
Guy Penrod does a good job of singing this great hymn for us. Have a blessed and thankful day. Anna Lee
“[The] Master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!
You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.
Come and share your master’s happiness!”
~Matthew 25:21 NIV~
Pray for Linda Callihan as she begins radiation today in Hammond. She will be going five days a week.
Pray for Mrs. Theople Hurst as she has surgery on her hand to help two fingers that aren’t cooperative. She will be at St. Tammany and come home to her own special nurse, her granddaughter, Emily.
Amber Prine Ragan of Ponchatould will begin six weeks of five days of treatment at MD Anderson. Following the radiation, she will be able to come home for the chemo that follows the radiation. Pray for her and for her family as they walk this journey with her.
Bro. Chip Sloan will have surgery early this morning in North Carolina for a brain tumor. Please pray for this dear friend and a former pastor of Roseland Baptist Church.
Read the Bible – Reflect on God as “Truth” and catch up on any readings you missed.
Operation Christas Child Shoeboxes – Ten shoeboxes were turned in this past week. This means ten families will have an opportunity to learn about Jesus and a child will probably have the best Christmas ever.
Our September associational WMU meeting will focus on the Georgia Barnett Offering and on the Friendship House in New Orleans where some of that money is invested in saving young ladies who get off the right path in their lives. I hope you are planning to hear Kay Bennett speak next month. Your heart will be blessed as you hear about her special ministry.
Have a wonderful week.
“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead.
You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am.”
~Matthew 16:24 The Message~
We had a very good missions project day yesterday. I think it may have been the most productive one yet. Special thanks to all who came and helped!
Today, there will be a new mission opportunity. At 5 P.M. in the missions classroom in the L-wing, we will officially begin Youth on Mission for middle school and high school students. This will be a project/activity focused group.
Please continue to pray for all those who are sick, receiving treatments, and undergoing tests. Do something to show your concern. Prayer is always appropriate!
Continue to pray for students as they begin a new school year. Many post-high school students will begin classes tomorrow.
