Mother’s Day

A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies.

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.

~Proverbs 31:10, 27-28 (NIV)~



Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers!



Please pray about how the weather is changing so many lives.  Many have had storm damage.  Others are facing of will face flooding.  Many jobs are put on hold until better weather returns.  I know God has all this under control.  We need to pray for people to make wise decisions concerning the weather.

Adrian Phillips visited a cardiologist yesterday and has set up an appointment for an angiogram next Tuesday at Baton Rouge General Hospital.  Lauree described their recent life as a “roller coaster”.  Many of you can relate.  Please pray for Adrian, Lauree, and their family.

Susie Sharkey will be going to Our Lady of the Lake Monday for a left knee replacement and later rehab in Hammond.  Pray for her as she faces this needed surgery.

Yesterday’s weather was a “humdinger”!  Pray for McComb residents and others who sustained damage.  Thank God for keeping people safe despite all the downed trees, electrical lines, damaged homes, businesses, etc.   Thank God for the safety he provided despite the physical damage.  Our God is mighty!



Read and Write the Bible Today – Matthew 6:6



Our weather pattern seems to include more wet days.  I pray for safety for those at home and those who have to leave their homes for jobs. education, appointments, etc.  I also pray for adults to be able to handle the weather in a way that teaches children how to safely respond to such situation.

LORD, you establish peace for us;

all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

~Isaiah 26:12~




I’m thankful for God who loves us and helps you find peace on the difficult days we all have.




I’m going to be brief this morning because I have a long list of things to accomplish today.




I am thankful for a better rest last night.  I am thankful to wake up in my own house.  I am thankful to open the refrigerator at my own home. I’m even thankful for the sound of my washing machine this morning.  Being in the hospital for a few days certainly makes you appreciate being back at home.  I’m thankful that David and I are back at home.  He lost fifteen pounds of fluid in less than a week.  I know he will feel better today.  Please continue to remember David in your prayers.

Adrian Phillips has been having problems with his heart and fluid.  He was scheduled to possible come home today.  Also, in his future, is open heart surgery.  Pray for God to watch over this man and his family.  His issues are his heart and his kidneys.




Mr. “Cete” Dillon should be released from North Oaks tomorrow.  Thank God that Mr. “Cete”s problem was addressed and handled in such a timely way.




We’re are home after three days at Ochsner.  A nurse practitioner listened and acted quickly when David had too much fluid in his body.  David was given medication until this afternoon to remove the fluid.  We are very tired, but thankful and home at last.  He also got his 20th unit of blood Monday afternoon.  We are so appreciative of those who have helped him.



Thanks so much for praying for these three men and all the others you added to these three names.  You are appreciated!

“The LORD watches over all who love him.”

I remember watching the Monday morning march with Buckskin Bill from Baton Rouge.  David and I now have a Monday morning ride to Baton Rouge.  Today, we meet my sister, Julie, in Ponchatoula so she can do some driving for us.  God had certainly been watching over us as we have traveled many medical miles in the last couple of years.  Thankfully, He has been with us all the way on this journey.

Yesterday, the local churches honored their graduates yesterday.  Let’s join together to pray for and encourage each one of them.  Their lives are all changing as they face the next steps of their future.  Let’s pray they welcome God to travel these new steps with them.
