Hello everyone. We are well on the way for summer activities. I hope all the mothers had a wonderful Mothers’ Day. I certainly did.
Thought for today: We need to take God out of our "emergency only" box and allow Him into our everyday life. (Joyce Meyer)
A special congratulations to my granddaughter Kayla Nicole Snow, who was married May 8 to Robert Williams “Beaux” Byrd.

Got a migraine, try using essential oils. Gently rub peppermint oil on temples, then vigorously apply a few drops of lavender oil to the top and bottom of both feet. Peppermint contains menthol, which acts as an anesthetic to ease the headache pain. Inhaling the scent of lavender was found to diminish pain for 71% of migraine sufferers due to its anti-inflammatory and sedative compounds. The foot rub helps since feet contain pressure points that ease headaches.
Remember: Take heart—the Lord will surely lead you through the valley. (Joseph Prince)
