Just Another Monday?
This morning Anita has taken Micah to the doctor. He has a sore throat and a bad cough. He has had the cough for several days, but just developed the sore throat yesterday afternoon. He actually wanted to go to the doctor this morning, so you know he really feels bad. I have been battling the same symtoms for a couple of days, but my medicine seems to be holding down. Please pray for all of us. There is just too much to do to be sick.
Pray for the Thomas Twins
I am sure that you heard that Brenda and Timothy Thomas had their twin girls last Thursday. Their names are Adrianna Danielle and Alexis Grace. Brenda (and Timothy) is doing fine and the girls are in the Neo-Natal unit at St. Francis. Adrianna has developed a little problem with her stomach. Please be in prayer for her especially and all the Thomas family during this time in the girls young lives.
Also be in prayer for Mrs. Celia Hartley's daughter Diane who is in Baptist in Jackson. Looks like a heart-cath for Diane. Also Mrs. Louise Tibbs is still in Delhi, but may get out today or tomorrow. One more to add to our prayer list is Cheryl and Marilyn's sister Carolyn who they had to bring to the emergency room at Delhi yesterday. May God be with each of these.
The Week Ahead
I will be teaching January Bible study beginning this coming Sunday at FBC Tallulah. It doesn't matter that I've been studying it for months and have already taught it once, I never feel prepared. There will be lots of reading this week. By the way, if you are interested, a few good books that I have used in preparation for teaching the JBS on the Book of Nehemiah are "Hand Me Another Brick" by Charles Swindoll, "Nehemiah: An Expositional Commentary" by James Montgomery Boice, "Nehemiah" from the Word Biblical Commentary Series, " and "Ezra, Nehemiah & Esther" from the New American Commentary Series. Remember, I will also be preaching through the Book of Nehemiah at Dunn BC very soon.
The Steelers Win
If you watched any of the Super Bowl or any television last night or this morning, you know that the Pittsburg Steelers defeated Seattle last night. I probably watched more football, after we got home from church last night, than I have watched all season. I always try to derive a spiritual lesson even from sporting events. One thing I thought about was this; Pittsburg won the Super Bowl dispite the fact that they had a 7 and 5 season. What do you do when things are going as well as they could for you, keep on keeping on.... don't give up. You never know. You may just win the Super Bowl.
