Thankfulness, Day 13 – Today, after working in the cold to make sure we were going to be okay when warmer temperatures arrive in a few hours, I am thankful to have a home to live in.  It’s 3:30 A.M.  I got up to check on things at 2:00 A.M.  I wouldn’t have to work and check on things if I hadn’t been blessed with so much.  I’ve seen lots of homeless people on television lately and heard some shelters have been opened for the homeless in New Orleans.  I’m thankful God blessed me with this  place that is warm and still has running water and electricity.  Nights like this help us count our blessings!  We’re snug as two “bugs in a rug”!  I pray you are too!

Update on Mrs. Peggy Luce:

My mom went to doctors today. She has broken nose, but it’s in line and no surgery for that. Her eye socket is fractured and not affecting her eye. She can get her stitches out on Friday! She’s exhausted from being out all morning, but doing well! Thanks for the prayers. Please continue to pray! We love y’all!                                                                                                                                                                 Debbie

 

 

 

Don’t forget the OCC Packing Party Saturday at 1 P.M.  Bring a Christmas snack to share.  Wear Christmas colors.  It is always amazing to see how quickly we can pack a large number of boxes.  If you have never done this before, give it a try,  You’ll want to do it every year!

 

 

 

Sunday, Pine Ridge United Methodist Church will host their monthly breakfast benefit at eight o’clock.  The fellowship is good, just like the food.

David had lab work, saw a NP, and got his weekly injection of Procrit yesterday.  The good news is that his blood level held at 8.6, which is good for him.  As always, we are so thankful for your prayers.  Please feel free to continue to pray for us.

 

 

Jonathan Edward Serigne

Jonathan Edward Serigne, AKA Batman, took final flight October 4, 2019. As a Holy Cross alumnus of 2001, he made it just in time to get the best seats for the hundredth game against Jesuit. Jonathan always lived life to the fullest and encouraged others to do the same. His infectious smile, confident personality, and caring demeanor attracted friendships everywhere he went. Even in his final days, he kept a smile on his face. Along with Holy Cross, he loved his LSU tigers, Nicholls Colonels, fraternity TKE and Saints. He leaves behind a wife, Randi Rousseau Serigne, two children, Jacques and Stella Serigne, his father and mother, Jack and Bonnie Serigne, brother and sister, Jack Serigne III and Stephanie Kostopoulos, and dozens upon dozens of grieving and loving family and friends. Losing him has left a void in all of us and is apparent by the number of people who’ve prayed and reached out to him. Just like Batman, he has one super power, he never gave up! He fought to stay with those who loved him till the very end. We all hope to see him again, as Jonathan would say, “same bat time, same bat channel.” Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation at ST. BERNARD MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 701 W Virtue St., Chalmette, LA on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. A Funeral Mass will begin at 2:00 PM. Interment will be private. To celebrate and honor the life of Jonathan, the family requests guests wear their favorite Batman inspired attire.

(Jonathan is the son-in-law of our friend, Darryl Rousseau of Ponchatoula.)

We are making progress on painting the shoeboxes.  We will paint tomorrow at 1 P.M.  Join us if you can.  I think by the time we paint tomorrow and Saturday morning we will have enough boxes ready for all the boys and girls we plan to pack a box for at the end of the month.  Packing and shipping the boxes is a great reward as we think about the boys and girls who will receive the boxes in 2020.  We have a few steps between painting and packing that we will be taking care of in the coming weeks.  You can pray for the packing and shipping as well as praying for the recipients.

 

 

 

Two Rivers WMU will be meeting at FBC, Kentwood on October 16th at 10 A.M.  You are invited to attend.

Operation Christmas Child

Thank-you to those who came to help with painting shoeboxes yesterday.  We painted many sweet pictures for the children to enjoy each time they open their shoeboxes.  Everyone was surprised at how easy it was!  Even though we painted many boxes, we still have more to paint.  We will also begin to fold the flat boxes into the proper shoebox shape.

If you missed out, I hope to paint twice during the week and again on Saturday.  Your help would be wonderful.  You will be blessed.  Here’s my plan:

  • Tuesday at 8:30
  • Wednesday at 8:30
  • Saturday at 8:30

Let me know when you can come help, if you can plan ahead.  If you can’t figure our your schedule ahead of time, just come.   Mark your calendar now for the Christmas party the last Saturday in October.  That’s when we have our big packing party and fill those shoeboxes in preparation for shipping them.  Come be a part a of special night.

It will take $9.00 for postage for each box we pack.  We are collecting those funds now.  Your support will be greatly appreciated.
