Paul's Final Thoughts

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! The sun is not shining yet, but I think the fog is lifting a bit. It looks like another day of fog, like yesterday, but maybe a bit warmer this afternoon.

I mostly stayed in and just did laundry and stuff around the house. Looked through a few closets and found some more clothes ready for the Salvation Army. Incredible how many things collect over the years!

I have my friend and cleaning lady coming today. She is such a hard worker and even has a part time job with Office Depot in the evening. I had a lot more energy when I was her age (in the fifties).

Well, the squirrels do not mind the fog..they still play and race up the oak trees, out the limbs, onto the roof and into the neighbors yard; pretty much racing across the street and going anywhere they please! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Philippians 4:1-4-9

Dear Brothers and Sisters, I love you and long to see you,
for you are my joy and the reward for my work. So please
stay true to the Lord, my dear friends.

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,
