Jacques Favorite Bible Verses"Our God, won't you just stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help"(2 Chronicles 20:12)."The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters; he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his names sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." (Psalms 23). Mom we love you and you will be greatly missed!
