Asking for your prayers.....

It saddens me to say I have spent too much time at the funeral home this week and it continues...

we were at Church last night when the news came about Preslie Slatton passing away! Preslie was a 12 year old little girl and a relative to Joy Slatton one of our members. We were having our Christmas dinner and when I heard the news I just cried. Please keep the Slatton family in your prayers. I read Kim Cantrell's blog and she asked others to post this candle as a memorial for Preslie. We have several children in our hometown suffering with cancer and other illness, please pray for these little ones and their families. We are so blessed to have healthy children, and especially this time of the year is a reminder to us all "the true gifts of this Holiday is our children"

Please keep Tabetha and her family in your prayers on the unexpected death of their Aunt, Deanna Kirby. I know they are beyond saddened by this loss and as their Christan family we can pray for comfort during their time of sorrow.

I would also like to mention the following families please pray for them in their time of loss.

John and Sherri Blaire ~on the passing of John's dad.

Candy Woodlee on the passing of her Dad, Winton Dykes,

Bobby and Charlotte Boyd ~ Charlotte's Mother Mrs. Frances Brown,

Mrs. Dean Gay~ her husband Mr. Dewey Gay

and others I may fail to mention.

God Bless you and your family and may he keep you safe in the shelter of his hand!

A death in the family is never easy, but it's particularly hard during the Holidays. I will stop now and pray for all the families you have mentioned.

Christmas hugs!
