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! Sun, breezes and puffy, white clouds! The same today and tomorrow. Just beautiful!

I spent some time yesterday trying to remember my life story and writing it down. More difficult than I imagined! I was asked to do this for the FCC anniversary coming up in Oct. I am not the only one to do this...several others are doing the same thing. I don't think anyone is as old as I am and has so many years to cover! I did not get very far, however. Still have to work on the early adult years....

This should be a good project for everyone who has grandchildren, who don't know what life was like without all the electronic gadgets of today! I remember the hang up phones, first black and white TV's, typewriters, ( I still have an electric one) and movies that were family swearing, clothes that covered the body, etc. Ah, those were the days!

I took a break and drove over to the Park in the heat and humidity, just to see the ibis, anhingas and squirrels racing around. Life goes on over there, but peacefully on the surface.
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 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,
