1 Thessalonians

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!  A beautiful start to the day1 The sun is shining brightly, and a gentle breeze is blowing and the temp is in the high sixties! Just about perfect!

However, my hands are so cold, I can hardly type! That's the way cold weather affects hands and feet stay cold. Some people stay warm all the time. Louis radiated heat and it felt good at night to warm up my cold feet on him. One Sunday, in church, I was sitting alone, when a friend sat down next to me and I could feel his warmth with no contact at all. Just like a big heater!

Yesterday, I watched the entire funeral service for Congressman Bill Young, and it was very impressive to hear all the tributes and appreciation expressed by friends and colleagues . I even choked up at times. He was a good man and will be missed. But, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

Always be joyful. Keep on praying. No
matter what happens, always be thankful,
for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff
at prophecies, but test everything that is
said. Hold on to what is good. Keep away
form every kind of evil.

Now may the God of peace make you holy
in every way, and may your whole spirit and
soul and body be kept blameless until that
day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.
God, who calls you, is faithful. He will do this.

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

Love and hugs,
