Paul's Joy

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! Bright sunshine and clear skies once again are the order for the day, just like yesterday, the day before,...well, you get the picture! We are so dry that the watering of the yards has been cut to once a week. I don't water at all, and my yard is suffering as a result.  But, according to the prediction, we may get a few showers maybe Christmas day.

We need it!

I am still not ready for Christmas as far as material things go. I have gift wrapping and I still do not have the house quite finished decorating. I am expecting Daryl and Matthew sometime early Sat. morning, since they will be driving all night. Last year they came in so quietly, I did not even hear them!

I got good news from Dr. Pierce yesterday morning, that I was still adjusted, so take that! anyone who says I am maladjusted! He also gave me a gentle hug and wished me a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! After I left there, I did more shopping, then came home, had lunch and let my cleaning ladies in. They cleaned one last time before a short Christmas vacation and also cleaned out the fridge, which needed it!

I took a trip into the park and saw about 8 Ranger trucks parked in front of the building, so I guess they must have been having a meeting or a party. When my friend, Terry, was supervisor, he used to always have a Christmas party and invited me. It was fun! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Philippians 1:12

Paul's joy that Christ is preached And I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, that everything that has happened to me here has helped to spread the Good News. For everyone here including all the soldiers in the palace guard, knows that I am in chains because of Christ. And because of my imprisonment , many of the Christians here have gained confidence and become more bold in telling others about Christ...

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

Love and hugs,
