Paul's Final Thoughts

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!When I stepped outside this morning, I was surprised to see the star I have been seeing for a couple weeks now, but just below it was the setting full moon! I had not seen the moon since the last full moon and there it was! I guess the rains we had yesterday, washed the sky so that everything was more visible. God is Awesome!

We stayed home yesterday, because of the rain, but David came and mowed the yard, washed the A/C filter and took care of a wasp nest on the front porch. Then, after hot soup and sandwiches for us, our cleaning ladies came, so we had company in and out during the day. Life is good.

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Philippians 4:4-9
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,
