Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I can do ALL these things through Him who gives me strength.

My very good friend Ray Warren, a Montgomery resident, furnished a verse that he says has brought peace and comfort to him and to his wife JoAnn over the years. Ray has had a distinguished career. After retiring as a claims representative superintendent with State Farm Insurance Co., Ray remained very active. He retired as a Colonel in the Alabama Army National Guard after 37 years of military service. Ray was then appointed as a Brigadier General in the Alabama State Defense Force.
Ray has served the State of Alabama in several roles, having served on the State Ethics Commission, the State Personnel Board, the State Health Coordinating Council, and on the Board of Trustees at Alabama State University. He also served a term as State President of the AARP. As you can see, Ray has been a very busy man. Even with all of his accomplishments, and his very busy schedule, Ray says his love for Jesus has really been the highlight of his life.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
