Greetings 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!  Sunshine and clouds this morning, as usual and another very warm, humid morning greeting us. Last night, I heard lots of thunder, rumbles and noise off in the distance, but it never came this way, although the porch was wet this morning, So, sometime during the night, we got a little rain, I think earthworms have built tunnels in the sand in the front yard where the grass does not grow, because the dirt looks very weird with black and white speckles.

And the crows are making a mess on the front sidewalk! They scratch all the mulch and old acorns out and leave them to make marks on the concrete! Messy, messy!

My cleaning ladies came to work yesterday after lunching at Italia Mia, which is one of their favorite places. Cheryl has to have cataract surgery this month, so that will keep her from working for a little while. I gave them calendars, because I always get half a dozen from the various charities I have donated to in the past! They were glad to get them.

I drove to Boston Market for a Mediterranean salad with chicken which I had for supper, and on the way back went by the building where Krispy Kreme is supposedly coming, but saw no signs of life or construction, so maybe they are waiting for permits, or maybe KK is not coming. Time will tell! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Colossians 1:9-14
So we have continued praying for you ever since
we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a
complete understanding of what he wants to do in
your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with
spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always
honor and please the Lord, and you will continually
do good kind things for others. All the while you will
learn to know God better and better.

We also pray that you will be strengthened with his
glorious power so that you will know all the glorious
power and endurance you need. May you be filled
with joy, always thanking the Father who has enabled
you to share the inheritance that belongs to God's
holy people that live in the light. For he has rescued
us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness
and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear
Son. God has purchased our freedom with his blood
and has forgiven all our sins.

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

Love and hugs,
