Lakeshore Baptist Church hosted a big community crawfish boil last night. Pictured above, Daryl “Gator” Lee carts off another helping. In the background, my wife Courtney and JoEll dish up 1,500 pounds of crawfish to church members, locals, and volunteers. The evening served as a welcome respite from the ongoing relief, recovery, and rebuilding efforts. We rejoice in God’s goodness and never ending boundless mercies.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;
who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
~ Psalm 103:2-5
