Easin' thru Ephesians

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! What a difference a day makes! While yesterday was overcast and rainy nearly all day, today there are few clouds and the sun is bright! It has also warmed up and the temp is in the low seventies and will climb higher this afternoon. According to the weatherman, there was a heavy fog bank early today, but no sign of it now.

Since it was such a gloomy day yesterday, I saw no need for going out, so I stayed busy with reading, and doing a few chores, and listening to the phone ring numerous times. Since Christmas, the soliciting calls have started up again. I am so glad I have caller ID!

I have to be out and about today with two appointments scheduled, so I will find out the results of the tests I had done last week! When the tech. was doing the ultrasound of my heart, I could hear the swish, thump of the heartbeat, and I told the lady, I was fearfully and wonderfully made.She just said, "Hmmm." I don't think she knew I was quoting from Psalms. But God is wonderfully good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-
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 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 the power  that comes from God.

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

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

Love and hugs,
