I hope everyone had a great Christmas despite the virus conditions and precautions. 
We had a good time with breakfast and then dinner with our  immediate family on Christmas Day.
Prayers please for these folks: Kristen Carlton Jones, Tim Landers, Brianna Landers, Gary Hyatt,  Jim Ruth, Eloise Murley, Samantha Mosier, Woodie Deming, Mrs. Mary Gilchrist and others in her family and Jere Pitts. If there is anyone you want to add to our prayer list, please call or text me. 
Happy birthday to Mary Dell Gilchrist on Jan. 4. I hope you are feeling better by then and can enjoy you special day!

Devotions – Jesus Meets Our Needs: “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” – John 12:32, NKJV
Often, when I arrive in a city to participate in some conference or seminar, the organizers will take me aside and tell me privately about the various people who will be attending. They describe the multitude. People with broken hearts and broken homes and broken dreams and broken hopes. And then they say, ‘Anne, we want you to know about someone in particular because we’re hoping you will say something that will meet his or her needs.’ If I accepted that burden, I would be crushed under it! There’s no way I can meet all those needs, so I usually respond with something like, ‘That’s impossible! There are too many diverse needs. I can’t address them all individually. But I can just give them Jesus.’ And again and again, I have seen Jesus personally meet the spiritual needs of the multitude – one by one.
Jesus has given me ample resources to meet the spiritual needs of others because He has given me Himself and He has given me His Word.” – From Just Give Me Jesus by Ann Lotz
God bless each one this week. I pray you will be well and happy. My number is 879-9777 to add anything to our news.
