Romans 15

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! After a rainy day yesterday, the sun is out and the wind has died down, but it is a bit chilly down in the fifties. Compared to the rest of the country, we are blessed to have such "warm" weather!

David came and mowed and cleaned up the yard yesterday before the rain, and then hung the icicle lights during the rain. His work is a blessing to us as are all the other friends who come to help out with different chores that I am unable to do. Later in the day, we were able to get out to pick up some milk, and went to see how the park looked in the rain. Not many cars, but a few hardy souls were actually walking out on the bridge in the drizzle. No picnickers, though, and only some ibis pecking around. Nothing stops them! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 15 verses:

We should please others. If we do what helps them , we will build them up in the Lord.....

May God, who gives you this patience and encouragement , help you live in complete harmony with each other--each with the attitude of Christ Jesus toward the other. Then all of you will join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So accept each other just as Christ has accepted you; then God will be glorified. Remember that Christ came as a servant to the Jews to show that God is true to the promises he made to their ancestors. And He came so that gentiles might also give glory to God for his mercies to them.

Romans 15:13 So I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
