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! Just as I said at the beginning of the week, it is another ditto day. Lots of sun, warm breezes and a bit lower humidity. Another day in Paradise! While I am not complaining, it would be nice to have a mountain nearby...just wishful thinking.

Well, yesterday, I enjoyed an ice cream social at church. Even though the construction and destruction is still going on, there was plenty of room for tables and people. Although there were more women than men, there were still quite a few men in attendance. All retired, of course.

Afterwards, a young man who grew up attending FCC and used to play in the worship team, spoke about his ministry at CFU. It is good to see the fruit from the vine continuing on with the ministry from our church.  Then Phyllis led us in singing some patriotic songs in honor of Memorial day. It was a good, time and I am blessed to have such a church family!

Afterwards, I went to my newly renamed bank and then took a ride to the park. I am happy that 62nd Ave. Is finished with the repaving, at least as far as the street goes, all the way to 4th St. There is still work to be done on the side streets, but nice, new blacktop on the main thoroughfare.

I believe Tuesday was Turtle day and I saw a big fat one moseying along at the park, with a black one on the side of the weir. An ibis was busy getting his dinner in the water, and an osprey flew by overhead. 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
God 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,
