Pray For America and the Election!



Hello once again.  It is hard to believe this will be the last newsletter written in 2008.  I stand amazed at how quickly time is flying by.

Cody turned six years old on September 21.  He has been such a blessing to our family.  We now have five grandchildren.  The last one was a girl, Selah Brooks.  She is the happiest baby.  What a blessing each one has been to us!  We have been so blessed.  We are also grands to our nephew’s two children, Addison and Isaac, so when we have family night, it is a house full of children!!!  But it is wonderful.

It appears three times in the Bible—twice in the Old Testament and once in the New Testament.  Luke 22:31-32 says, “And the Lord said Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.  BUT I HAVE PRAYED FOR THEE, THAT THY FAITH FAIL NOT.”   According to the 1828 dictionary, sift means to examine minutely or critically, to scrutinize.  It blessed me so to realize my Saviour is ever living to make intercession for us!  He is so wonderful to be so good to His children.  We have no more strength in ourselves, but God is now our all in all.  He has never failed us!  In the month of September I prayed the Psalms.  I can't
