and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Hosanna in the highest!”

Frozen Food for Families

Take some time to put up some food in your freezer to share tomorrow or look through what you have on hand to share.  Bring it to my Sunday School classroom at FBC, K  before Sunday School in the morning.  The food will be given to the families tomorrow. Thanks for helping meet some needs.

Please add John Orr to your prayer list.  He was married to my Aunt Naomi.  Early Friday morning he thought he had a new heart problem, but tests yesterday did not show a heart issue.  He will have gall bladder tests next week.

Also, add Mr. Frankie Gehringer if he is not already on your list.  In addition to his ongoing problems, he got tripped and has an ankle problem.

I hope this Easter season contains time to recognize and celebrate what Jesus did for each of us and how that affects us today.   I hope you also have an opportunity to share/pass on the meaning of the Easter season.

 Remember this:

Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way

will save him from death

and cover over a multitude of sins.

~James 5:20~

(As I prepared my Sunday School lesson for today, I found a note at the end that encouraged us to invited people to Sunday School next Sunday to learn of the resurrection and its impact on our future.  That certainly is  good idea.  This morning, hears a verse to give us more encouragement to do so.)

Jadon’s Journey (Written by his mom)
Ortho doesn’t think it’s a fracture. She thinks that the tendon is tight and because Jadon is so active it is rubbing against the bone by his heel which is the area that hurts him to touch. The rubbing is causing inflammation which is causing him to not be able to walk. They put him in a cast for 2 reasons. 1 to let his foot rest so it can heal. 2 to help stretch the tendon. They casted his foot at a 90 degree angle to stretch it really well. He will wear the cast for 2 weeks and then we will go back to see what needs to be done next. He is so happy he can walk on it. I just pray it doesn’t set him back too much. He was doing so well!! The ortho seems to think we will have to do adjustments every time he has a growth spurt.

 Jadon’s Journey

Update on Jadon’s foot. The orthopedic called yesterday and said that after reviewing his xrays that it looks like a fracture. It is not his tendon like we originally thought. We will go back to Childrens Monday to get a cast. He is not happy about it. He wants it to come off now because he says it feels better. He is such a tough little boy. He kept telling me there was a crack inside his foot. Well he was right. His brace that he wears was giving him enough support to walk and that’s why he was having so much trouble when we took it off. It also explains why it was getting worse daily. It had to be hurting him and he never complained of pain. My tough little guy! (Written by his mom)
