God First! Heavenly Father, our human nature being what it is, we are always at odds with others or are thinking about what others say or do. When we try to do better we fail and take the easy route of doing nothing or turn away. Lord, help us to seek through prayer and meditation a better understanding of ourselves in all we do and say so that we can do better with and through Your amazing Grace. We pray in the name of our dear Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. Lord, we are going Your way! Pray for those who are ill, suffering or are in harm’s way.

I’m really thinking that we’re going to be in those facilities somewhere around the 19th [of August]. That’s subject to some other things that none of us can control.”
