Our friend Bill Ledoux has such a great attitude about life and he has allowed us to share some of his thinking. Just wanted to tell everyone that we are so grateful to have life each day. Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, just a lot of reward. Make sure that we pray daily, and pray believing God will answer our petitions according to his will:
"May today be all we need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in our thoughts, rule in our dreams tonight and conquer all our fears. May God manifest Himself today in ways we have never experienced! May our joys be fulfilled, our dreams be closer and our prayers be answered. We pray that faith enters a new height for us; we pray that our territory is enlarged. We pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy and true and undying love for God."
Amen and Amen!
Some exciting things are happening in our town this May. Ann Westrom, Mrs. Fred, was honored Friday last at a big bridge soiree at Bayou DeSiard Country Club. Ann now has over 7,500 Master points in bridge in which there are only 134 members with this designation from a total membership in the American Contract Bridge League of 164,891. That means she ranks in the top 56 percent and higher, nationally.
