Phlippin' thru Philippians

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! Yes, it is still morning for another hour or so.. It is another beautiful day and looks like it will be good weather for the MacDill airfest going on tomorrow.

I mostly stayed around the house yesterday, staying out of the sun on my wounded face. It will be another week or more before the scab on my nose comes off. Meanwhile the two spots on the right cheek are still prominent and I do not like them! Ah, vanity is thy name, even at my advanced age!

I drove over to the park late in the afternoon, and quite a few people were there, including those with cameras. There is always something to photograph, even if it is just seeing the natural Florida, which the banks of the canal look like. I saw a black turtle sunning on the banks of the weir on the way in, and the sun was high and bright! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Philippians 4:4-9
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again, rejoice!
Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do.
Remember, the Lord is coming soon.

Don't worry about anything, instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do
this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more
wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace
will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
And now,  dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more
thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is
true and honorable and right. Think about things that are
pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that
are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice
all you learned from me and heard from me and saw me
doing, and the God of peace will be with you.

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

Love and hugs,
