Paul's Prayer

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! Sunshine, puffy clouds a slight, humid breeze and very warm temps are how this Monday is starting! With a promise to be even hotter as the days grow longer!

I enjoyed a good weekend, in spite of having my stitches out of the arm, and a visit to the dentist. The arm is healing nicely and so is the toe. I am able to wear closed toe shoes now, without so much discomfort, which is a blessing.

Brian came over for a visit Saturday, and I suggested that we go to The Hangar for dinner. He was in agreement, so off we went, and decided to try the waffle and chicken item. We had a wonderful waiter named Will. When I asked about the waffle and chicken, he said they had a number of "repeat offenders" who came back time after time for that dish. I was doubtful because I like veggies, and he pointed out that there were red pepper flakes in the maple syrup. I said that was not my idea of veggies. We had a laugh about it! I would not order the dish again, but it was different ...had lots of chicken, gravy and syrup.

While we were there, we could see the tall masts of the CG ship Eagle, and also, an ultra-light airplane came zooming down the field and off for a quick flight around the neighborhood, then came back in for a landing, out of sight. We also watched a Carnival cruise ship sail out of sight headed for some destination. Then we watched the Safari helo take off on a twenty minute flight, come back and land.

After we finished, Brian drove a far as he could, down to the harbor, so we could see the Eagle up close and personal. It is magnificent! We did not get the tour, but the close up look was great! I usually remember to say a little prayer of thanksgiving for the men flying the Coast Guard helicopter over the house as it comes back from it daily patrols.

Then came Sunday and I was engrossed by the power of the sermon and enjoyed meeting and greeting all the friends at church. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-21

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 God's people should, how wide how
long 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.

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

Love and hugs,
