What a wonderful weekend it was. I spent most of my day outside Saturday. I started with participating in the “Walk for Life” for Birth Choice, and I would like to extend great thanks to those that gave my sponsorship donations. Following that, I was able to attend the International Food Festival in downtown Jackson. It is a great time for family. My husband David, daughter Margot, son Joel with his wife Megan and twins, Tavish and Lachlan and I enjoyed our time together and with friends. This is my third year to attend. It is great to see the people of different cultures meet together in celebration with song and dance and enjoy the food prepared to show their countries’ favorites. If you missed it, you should plan to attend next year. I will say that one of my favorite food booths was not represented this year and that is the Philippines’ booth that usually has lumpia. That was my only disappointment.

Please be in prayer for our all local and federal elected officials, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and administrators as decisions are being made and with all the upside down happenings in our world around us. Pray daily with all that is going on in our world. There is much spiritual warfare with society accepting things that go against who God is and what HIS laws are that we are to follow. Every day of life has its challenges, but if we look to God for the right path, it can be a good one. Please pray for Bro. Iran Smith, Jenine Hogancamp, Lois Armour, Kathy Emerson, Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Lisa Bishop, Kolby Cumingham, Jennifer Paton, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper, Jake Richardson, Ann Morrison, Faye Crouse, Ed Morris and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Eva Mae Whitman, James O. Massengill, Wendell Cox and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
