Last night, while Tom and Gail Brister were here, two ladies from a nearby church stopped to pray for David.  What a special moment for everyone!

Anna Lee












I lost my post, so this will be brief.



If you didn’t set your clocks back, you need to do so this morning.



16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 

17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 

19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 

21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. 

~Ephesians 3:16-21~

As usual, there are some good articles I think you will enjoy.





Jewel Kay Cutrer is home from the hospital with her pacemaker.  Pray it is helpful to her.




David – I hate to ask for prayers again, but something else has happened to David.  We had three medical appointments last week.  On the way home yesterday, he told me his vision wasn’t right.  That led to the fourth doctor visit!  The lower half of the field of vision in the right eye was not there.  Instead, everything was black.  We went to a doctor.  By the time we got in, the black area was fuzzy.  After all the retina surgeries he has had, I knew we had to get attention.  The doctor said something in a blood vessel moved through his eye, but it seemed to be better.  Testing of his vision was done.  We go back on the 19th, unless we need to go again sooner.  The field of vision is almost normal this morning.  We thank God for that.  Please continue to pray for David, and me, as we seem to deal with one issue after another.  God is faithful to walk each step of this journey with us.




Tonight is the proper time to change your clocks forward!  

Anna Lee






Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel.

Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.
