First Thessalonians 5:18 - In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I hope your week has been good and God has blessed you

Happy birthday this week to Mrs. Arlene Wolverton. Happy anniversary to Jessie and Bobbie Nell Thrash. They celebrated 58 years of marriage.

We are glad to be able to go sing for the nursing homes again. Merkell and I were sick a week or so but thanks to God and all the prayers we are feeling so much better.

On Friday, we stopped by and visited with Frances. We ate dinner with her and Gayle. We always enjoy each others company. They are dear friends and we always discuss the Bible. I thank God for all my Christian friends.

Pray for Otis Beckham's family. Merkell worked with him for years for the city and they were close friends.

Thanks for all the prayers lifted up for Charles Ray's girlfriend, Shonda Ryals. She is recovering from surgery last week. She is home and doing better.

We saw Brother Carroll and Sister Martha Reid today. It has been years since we have seen them. A special hello to them.

My Aunt Dot called from Ohio. They are back in their home. They were without power for a long time but they are OK. We need to pray for all those who lost their homes to water and fire.

A thought for today: Whenever we're ready to uncover our sinces God is ready to cover them.

God bless you this week. Pray for someone this week, attend church of your choice. Pray for Alex Lott's family, the 15 year old who died in Hattiesburg this past week. Pray for Ivy Lee Jenkins as she fell and broke her shoulder and arm. She lives in Meridian.
