* Our prayers for the soul of Chris Klicka and the consolation of his family this week. Chris Klicka was an important and passionate supporter and defender of homeschooling, and the senior counsel of HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Association). After a long battle with MS, he passed away yesterday, October 12th. His life on earth yielded much good fruit. May his soul, and the souls of all the Faithful Departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
* Also, a personal prayer request from the Davis family, if you have a moment to send up a word today. My Aunt Billie Jean traveled here from North Carolina to visit with us and be present at Paul's wedding, at the risk of her own fragile health. Aunt Billie is the dearest, most Godly woman you can imagine; we love her dearly, and are so grateful she chanced the trip... But all the physical activity of the past few days has landed her in the hospital with severe back pain. If you could spare a few seconds to send up an Ave for her this morning, we would so appreciate the help in storming heaven, so she can have a few days of comfort to visit with the family before she goes home on Saturday. Thank you so much!
