Tom and I pray that your year is richly blessed.
As I was listening to the lyrics of “Breath of Heaven,” I realized that I related to the message: I felt overwhelmed with hope that the Breath of Heaven, YHWH is holding me together.

”I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone?
Be with me now
Be with me now
Breath of heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of heaven
Breath of heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For you are holy
Breath of heaven
Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am
For the mercy of your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me”

Amy Grant

What are the rules and procedures? This H & W Committee video from 2022 will help you to better understand.


It is the committee Vice Chair’s responsibility to oversee changes to the rules and procedures. These changes take up most of our time in the first couple weeks of the legislative session. As you can see in the chart above, the Health & Welfare committee is second in pages only to Resources & Environment.  I was surprised the Education committee didn’t have a higher page count.
