Paul's Prayer

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! Well! We had a tornado alert and lots of rain as the storm passed through about 7 AM. But it moved fast and now we have sunshine and cooler temps. However,there was lots of damage in some areas from trees falling and roofs ripped off. From the news reports, insurance adjusters are already on the job for some people. This is good.

I was hoping for a rainy day so I could cancel my dentist appointment. I have a suspicious spot on one tooth that the hygienist wants Dr. Bob to look at. I really don't dread going to the dentist, but it is not one of my favorite things to do. It is a long drive clear across town and then my jaw gets so tired from my mouth being open. Dr. Bob makes it as painless as possible, singing sometimes, and making jokes that it is impossible to laugh at since my mouth is wide open with stuff hanging out! Sigh...just a job I have to do.

Well, the house is clean and pretty much back to normal, after the short weekend visit from Daryl and Matthew. Cheryl and Kim cleaned and polished and did a good job, as usual. Today Kim and her husband were taking off for Miami to visit and help pack up their daughter and son in law to get them ready for a move to Louisiana. He is in the military, so has to go where they are sent. Meantime, Cheryl will be busy in her backyard spreading mulch. That is more work than cleaning houses!

I went shopping at Walgreen's yesterday, to buy some things CVS no longer carries. I was surprised to find a lot of sale items, so not only did I find what I needed but a few other things at a good sale price! After I left there, I drove on to the Park where not many people were enjoying nature and picnicking and walking their dogs.It was a beautiful day. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-23
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 deep his love really is. May you
experience the love of Christ, though it is so great
you may 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
through endless ages. Amen.

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

Love and hugs,
