***About our friend Paul Smith: Renee Garrett Smith, Paul’s wife, writes:
I have rewritten this over and over trying to figure out the right words to say. In June Paul was hospitalized three times. Last Friday I spoke with Paul’s liver specialist about some pretty significant concerns I had since Paul’s discharge from Memorial hospital just before Fathers day. There were several falls, lack of appetite, his oxygen was dropping… just overall not good. Ultimately they requested he come to Vanderbilt for evaluation thru the emergency room. He wasn’t able to make the trip Friday, but Saturday we went. He spent a few days with them running labs, and tests. On Wednesday he fell at the hospital and his oxygen dropped pretty low and couldn’t recover so they moved him to icu. After quite extensive evaluations the doctors met with us to explain that Pauls condition was worsening and nothing could be improved with his health-and, they recommended hospice. The doctors and nurses were amazing and spent so much time explaining things to Paul and listening to our questions and concerns. Paul chose to come home yesterday via ambulance and is getting settled in. He had a great day yesterday and hopefully has lots more great days ahead. He is requiring high levels of oxygen- so he tires very easily.
You all are welcome to our home to visit Paul. Please message me and we will arrange a time. Since he’s tiring so easily we have to make sure he gets rest too. We are doing everything in our power to make every day meaningful and fulfilling to Paul. He loves his family beyond any words I could use to describe it. He loves his friends and is so happy that he has been able to share his voice and his love for music and bring joy to so many people. He sang with the chaplain when he was still at the hospital and it made his heart happy. Only God knows what the future holds – but, all the care and concern has not gone unnoticed, and is so very appreciated. Please keep us all in you prayers, especially Paul❤️ (from July 4)

I’ll Pray for You
Most people when faced with a crisis reach out to God! Even those who don’t really have a close relationship with Jesus will ask their family, friends, and even strangers to pray. But how many people make that commitment and never follow through? The words, “I’ll pray for you,” have become just something to say, like any other common words of comfort when you feel sorry for someone or sad because of what trial they are facing. It’s almost like saying, “Have a nice day.” But when we tell someone that we will pray for them, we have made a commitment before God to earnestly lift that person up in prayer, asking for God’s will to be done in their lives. If we have no intention of praying, then we should not make a commitment to do so. If at all possible, it’s good to stop what we are doing right then and there and lift them up to our heavenly Father! There’s a world of hurting people all around us, so why not start praying for them today? And the next time someone asks for prayer, say sincerely, “I’ll be happy to pray for you. Let’s pray now.”
