Today, I would like to add James Morgan to our prayer list. He has a new stent in his heart that seems to be able to help him not to have majaor heart surgery. Pray for him and his family.
I would also like to remind you of all the high school and college graduates who will be facing many choices about their future. Let’s pray they made good choices that will be beneficial to their future.
Read and Write the Bible – “Abiding in Christ” – John 14:23
Have a wonderful Lord’s Day. I hope you will be able to attend Sunday School and worship today. If not, there are many opportunities to worship with a church, some of the local churches included. I think that is a great way to use technology to share the gospel.
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Abiding in Christ – Read and Write the Bible – John 5:42
Adjust you schedule to fit the weather predictions. Expect more rain later today.
Rain or no rain, today is the day to prepare for the Lord’s Day which is also know as Mother’s Day this week.
Ladies, today is a good day to review the Scriptures about the ideal woman we should be striving to be. These verses are from Proverbs 31.
Have a great day. Do the ordinary things of your daily life that add up to making a great life!
As you have probably already figured out, David did not get to go home this morning. He still has some fluid to have removed. David feels better with the blood he received (20th unit) and the fluid loss from his body (2+ liters).
He’s eating well and took his walker for a round or two in the hallways. As more tests are done, we will learn more about going home tomorrow.
Please keep praying for David and those caring for him. Also, please pray for Mr. “Cete” Dillon and Mr. Adrian Phillips, who are both hospitalized at North Oaks.
As you pray for these three men, please also make an effort to contact someone to check on them and to pray for them.
I appreciate Facebook posts by Jeff Van and others. Jeff pastors in McComb. His grandmother and my mother were first cousins, so that makes us . . “kin”. This is Jeff’s post for today which I have paraphrased.
There is not enough room in your heart for worry and faith, so you have to choose which one rules your life each day.
This morning I wrote about the Monday ride to Baton Rouge. Our ride didn’t end with us at home tonight. We are in room 206 at Ochsner.
David’s body has had several battles going on. Today, he got a unit of blood and is ridding his body of too much fluid.
God has continued to walk this journey with us. He also allowed my sister, Julie, and David’s niece, Leesha, to be very helpful to us today.
The doctors have a plan for us to go home tomorrow. I’m waiting to see what God’s plans are. Whatever that is, we choose to follow Him!
I’m not sure when I will write again. Pray for God’s will for our lives.
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”
