    What a great life and testament? Despite her handicap, she knew that life was a gift and God's grace to her. Her labor for the Lord was not to build up personal merit but to give thanks. I will reference her in a sermon on 9/25/2022 when the theme is "Evangelical hymns of the Anglical Communion." Thank you, Charlotte. Praying for the repose of your eternal life. Amen.

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
