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!  We had sunshine an hour or so ago, but now the clouds are coming in ahead of the rain, so it is mostly overcast. The rain is supposed to be starting in about an hour. Then the cold will follow.

Yesterday, I turned the A/C on in the afternoon. The house was stuffy and my cleaning ladies were complaining about the hot weather, although to me, 78 is not really hot. However, a record was set for the day when we reached 84!

I gave my ladies their early Valentine's gifts when they were ready to go..just small boxes of Whitman's chocolates all wrapped up. Kim could not wait, so she tore open her box right away to get at the chocolates!

Well, I am not happy about speed bumps going in on the main street out of this neighborhood. I see signs up for three of them, which will affect the time an emergency vehicle takes to get to an address. Bummer!

Later in the afternoon, I took a trip to the Park and almost missed a great blue heron, hidden in a clump of undergrowth by the weir. I thought I saw a gator, but it turned out to be a small group of water lilies. The park was full of cars and I saw a group of people reading the signs about the work going on in the lake, which has been underway for over a year.. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Philippians 4:4-7
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. ..

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

Love and hugs,
