Hello, Father.
Thank you for this quiet moment to sit and write my post. My body is antsy, restless and ready to spring into action. Thank you for my health and my energy, and thank you for excitement and hope. Thank you for clean body and clean clothes! And thank you so much for the peace and unity between my husband and myself, Lord. Thank you again and again for helping him to be patient and compassionate towards me yesterday, especially at the storage unit, where I have such trouble with shame, seeing all the space on this earth that my stuff takes up – even if it’s just two-thirds of a 5×10 foot storage unit, lol. Thank you for helping me in so many countless ways, Shepherd! 😀

 
Ephesians 2:13‭-‬22 ERV

Yes, at one time you were far away from God, but now in Christ Jesus, you are brought near to him. You are brought near to God through the blood sacrifice of Christ. Christ is the reason we are now at peace. He made us Jews and you who are not Jews one people. We were separated by a wall of hate that stood between us, but Christ broke down that wall. By giving his own body, Christ ended the law with its many commands and rules. His purpose was to make the two groups become one in him. By doing this he would make peace. Through the cross Christ ended the hate between the two groups. And after they became one body, he wanted to bring them both back to God. He did this with his death on the cross. Christ came and brought the message of peace to you non-Jews who were far away from God. And he brought that message of peace to those who were near to God. Yes, through Christ we all have the right to come to the Father in one Spirit. So now you non-Jewish people are not visitors or strangers, but you are citizens together with God’s holy people. You belong to God’s family. You believers are like a building that God owns. That building was built on the foundation that the apostles and prophets prepared. Christ Jesus himself is the most important stone in that building. The whole building is joined together in Christ, and he makes it grow and become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Christ you are being built together with his other people. You are being made into a place where God lives through the Spirit.

 
Lord, I thank you for all you are doing in our lives. Please give special blessings to those who have helped us in special ways, especially the Dans and the Davids, haha. Please do return an hundredfold back to those loving hearts who touched ours. Please let today’s transitions go smoothly, and help us not to forget anything important. Thank you for your faithful care!
