Dr. Birdie and Angela,
My prayer is that you will continue to embrace God's spiritual truths, His personal comfort and His compassionate love during this time. I know you know that nothing is able to separate you from God's love which is deeply sourced in Christ Jesus our LORD. Draw near to God who is, and always will be, a shelter in every storm!! 2 Corinthians 12:9 tells us "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness". Lean on God's everlasting arms. Union Hill is here for you, in Jesus name. Love always,
Deacon McArthur Floyd
