“If any of you lacks wisdom,
let him ask God,
who gives to all liberally and without reproach,
and it will be given to him.”

Obituary for Millicent “Millie” Bradley
Millie Bradley received her angel wings on Thursday, November 7, 2013 at her residence in Albany, at the tender age of 5. She was a member of St. Margaret Catholic Church and an Albany Lower Elementary Preschool student. Millie was a loving child, who adored life and found great fulfillment in making others happy. She enjoyed listening to music, playing with her friends and siblings, and strolling outdoors. Although Millie’s life was short, her family made many wonderful memories they will cherish forever, including a big celebration of her life party this past summer, snuggling on the couch, taking a cruise to Mexico, visiting the pumpkin patch, and receiving school awards.
Millie leaves behind her beloved parents, William and Sonja Bradley; sisters, Christian Bankston and Adeline Bradley; brothers, William Bradley and Darrell Castella Jr. She is also survived by her grandparents, Jim Taylor, Lola Taylor, Sue Bradley, Betty Taylor and Alan Cooper.
Millie’s grandfather, Peter P. Bradley Sr., and uncle, Peter P. Bradley Jr. preceded her in death.
Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the visitation from the chapel of Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home of Hammond, on Monday, November 11, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial, officiated by Father Jamin, will follow at 12:30 p.m. at St. Margaret Catholic Church in Albany and interment will take place in St. Margaret Catholic Church Cemetery.
Baptist Friendship House
Tonight has been a night of celebration- a first, sixth, seventh, and eighth birthdays, GED graduation, and two moms completing our program. There is no better way to spend a Friday evening with smiles and tears of joy. We love our BFH family.
Devotional – Our Daily Bread – “The Rock”
Values – Giving Back – Just an Easy Gesture (This one will touch your heart!)
Hymn of the Day – “Jesus Paid it All”
I chose this hymn for two reasons:
- In honor of the ministry of Rev. Billy Graham at the time of his 95th birthday and his television programs the last couple days.
- In hopes that hearts will be receptive to the messages at the revival at FBC, Kentwood Sunday through Wednesday.
Billy Graham “Hope for America” will be shown Sunday evening at 7:00 on FOX in case you have not seen it yet.
Thankfulness – Day 9
Today, I would like to thank God for technology. Remember, I grew up in the age of:
- slide rulers, not calculators
- manual typewriters, not computers
- ditto paper, not laser printers
- snail mail, not e-mail
- pen and paper, not blogs
I’m thankful for these, and other, technological improvements that have allowed God’s word to be shared much more effectively.
I covet you prayers today as I speak at a luncheon in celebration of “125 Years of WMU”. Pray I will be able to inform and encourage the ladies. May God use me as His messenger.
