Greetings from Paul

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! We started out with sunshine, but now it is overcast and breezy and still a little coolish. But, already the race cars for the Grand Prix are making noise downtown, so unless it rains, I think the race will go on.

Some of the people who live in the condos make plans to be out of town during the race, because it is so noisy. So, that is a good place for me to stay away from this weekend!

As I was putting sheets in the washer this morning, I saw two ducks sitting in the yard next door very close to my door, and a squirrel on the roof sitting in the rain gutter, looking down at the ducks.  But, like squirrels always do, he did not stay quiet for long, and then he was off. I don't really know why the ducks come on this street, because we have no water close by, except for a little still in the street gutters.

Our mail is coming later and later. Yesterday it did not come until 6 PM. I have heard that none of the carriers want to bid on this route for some reason. Oh, well, God is still 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 always 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,
