Words from Paul

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! Can't tell it from this mornings chilly weather, but it looks like a warm-up this weekend. Yay! This cold weather has lasted long enough!

I tried to walk at the park yesterday, but as soon as I walked on the bridge, the wind hit and it was cold! I had a coat on but the wind seemed to go right through it. I saw a little moorhen going about her business as usual on the water, not seeming to mind the weather. Also a flock of ibis were busily pecking the ground as they usually do, and on the way in, the gator was in its usual spot, sunning on the bank. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

2 Corinthians 12:8-10
My gracious favor is all you need. My power works best in your weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may work through me. Since I know it is all for Christ's good, I am quite content with my weaknesses and with insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Paul's Final Advice:

Greet each other in Christian love. All the Christians here send you their greetings.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

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

Love and hugs,
