Seasons of Life
“To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1a
It feels like we are in a season of death and grief lately. We start to come to grips with one loss and another happens with days. Within a few weeks there have been many deaths, five of which were connected to our North Scott High School family. Being able to reach out to each other in some way has really helped in letting them know that they are not alone and we care and share in their sorrow. The pain of losing someone can often at the moment cloud our vision and make us not fully aware of what’s going on around us. My prayer is that even with the weight of confusion and grief, that we find the hope and comfort in the remembrance that Jesus is alive and at work in the world and in us. Although we still face heartaches and pain, we can welcome Christ to walk with us in/through our tunnel/valley of grief. Jesus is the light of the world and gives rays of hope to brighten our foggy days!
We are in continued prayer for all the sick and shut-in and their caregivers.

Larry Weathers; Camelia Kincaid; Gail Johnson; Gloria Hughes; Leslie Patrick; Joe Townsend; Cynthia Johnson; Vincent Slaughter & Children; Nancy Hughes; Joey Hunt; Emma Jones; Cindy Williams; Sandra Odom; JoAnn Graffenread; Fannie Bradford; Bobby Joe Harrison; and others seeking prayer.

And a special prayer for all our missing children, that they be found safe and returned home.
