Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the cloudy, windy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Rain is predicted today as the cold front moves through, but when I stepped outside this morning, the sky was almost clear, although I could not see the waning moon and the planet very close to it like yesterday. However, it was very windy and almost chilly!
The only time we ventured out yesterday, in the short time it was not raining hard, was to the Park. We saw two peacocks on the way in, and on the bank by the canal was a very large gator taking a break. He wasn't basking in the sun, because there wasn't any. We drove on in the park, and very few people were there, but some hardy ones were enjoying walking in the sprinkles. The water is up and the park looks good and green. God is good!
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again--rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything, Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and heard from me and saw me doing and the God of peace will be with you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
