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! Lots of sun and some puffy, white clouds are greeting the day, but I still see glittering drops of rain on the shrubs and an occasional drip off the roof, from the rain last night. It was quite a thunderstorm, and since I did not have any place to go, I was snug in my house.
Well, I drove out to my dentist's yesterday, which is across town at Crosswinds. Saw some construction I had not seen before and passed a Shell station selling gas for 3.39 a gal.! I saw on FB that it is predicted to go as high as $10.00 a gal. due to the conflict in Iraq! I pray that does not happen!
My garage is empty right now, since my mechanic, Ray., came by to pick up the van and take it for servicing. What a convenience! He will bring it back at noon and swap for his SUV, which is in the driveway.I would not mind if he brought a Coney Island chili dog with him!
My across the street neighbor and cleaning lady took my dumpster down yesterday. I am so blessed with the helpful people around here and at church! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
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 power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is
able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or
hope. May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever
and ever through endless ages. Amen
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
