                          WELCOME TO 2022—TRUSTING THE LORD FOR A BETTER YEAR!

     Most of us have had better years than the last two, especially when we think of the pandemic and other health issues (like cancer). However, the Lord has been good through it all and I can honestly say that He is faithful and gracious in so many ways. Recently I wrote a devotional from Lamentations 3:20-24 that I would like to share with everyone: “I well remember my afflictions and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I will remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.”
     Even if we have not had the kind of struggles and difficulties Jeremiah had during the destruction of his nation at the judgment of the Lord by the Babylonians, the fact that just in the USA, over 800,000 have died from covid-19 and now there are variants of this virus threatening to take the lives of more. We who know the Lord need to show through our lives and witness the goodness, grace, and mercy of our Lord.
     Since I have been asked about treatment and plans, may I share briefly what the oncologist has said? There are to be four cycles as follows: three weeks of treatment, then, one week off. The final cycle is scheduled to complete in February. That will be followed by a meeting with the surgeon and another pet scan to determine how the chemo has done and determine when to have surgery.
     Our family is extremely grateful for your prayers and for the privilege of continuing to work mostly from home, but occasionally from the office. I am also very thankful for Darlene and the wonderful job she does in keeping the office running smoothly! These are two of the ways that the Lord has blessed me so abundantly.
     As we now move into a new year, I pray the Lord’s richest blessings upon you and all our churches in the Paluxy Baptist Association. May this year bring Him much glory through all the services, ministries and mission work engaged in by everyone! I hope you know,
                                                                       I am so glad to be your DOM,
