Word Sharpener Weekly – May 4, 2015

Word Sharpener News:  It has been a rough few weeks for me. In the past four months, I’ve lost three members of my extended family and two close friends. Four of them died within this last month. But God is faithful, and I will see them again. We do not grieve as those who have no hope.

Holidays This Week: Thursday, May 7 is National Day of Prayer. The theme is Lord, hear our cry. The United States of America has never needed prayer more than it does now.

For more information, go to National Day of Prayer Website.
