Ephesians 3

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! I woke to thunder and rain and it has been raining ever since I got up. Right now, it is heavy rain, but, so far, the weather at the Cape looks like it is still a "go" for take off for Atlantis. I watched the Astro-bus take the astronauts to the shuttle and now I guess they are loaded  on board. They are very brave in my opinion!

Yesterday was also a rainy day here by the time I got ready to go someplace, the rains started, so I decided to stay home and be lazy. I wasn't in the mood to clean out more closets or drawers, so read a lot and tried to exercise. I have Tim Tebow's book, so I will start on that soon. Looks like I won't get much done today, either, with all the rain coming down. But, God is good! We were dry for a very long we are not!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Paul's Prayer for Spiritual Empowering

When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand , as all of God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now glory be to God!  By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages.

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

Love and hugs,
