Paul's Thanksgiving and 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! I can see blue sky from my window, but rain is dripping off the roof, so the prediction is spot on this morning, which called for rain. The wind is supposed to pick up and bring the cold front in, so this may be the last one of the winter, because spring is most definitely here, no matter what the calendar says!

Due to the mess in the bathrooms and the back up when the washing machine was going, I did not get out yesterday, But Inman plumbers came out and he rooted out the pipe in the back and got rid of the roots causing the problem.  Because of the two large oak trees in the back yard, I have to have that done every couple years. But all is well, and flowing freely! 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 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 have all the patience and endurance that 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, who 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,
