Good morning, Father!
Thank you for total peace, and even a cozy feeling that I have absolutely everything that I could possibly need — or even want!! Even the weather is awesome today, with a light rain and a perfect 70-ish temperature. 🙂 Thank you for giving me a wide variety of projects to work on — even though the outdoor ones are put on hold until it dries up, lol. Thank you for my awesome Mate and children and friends and family. And thank you for helping me start writing my new BOOK yesterday… WOW! I know it will probably be more like a booklet, but I don’t mind that one bit. You made me to create things in short bits, fun little to-the-point tidbits that are quick and easy and friendly for all ages. I like that! I may never write a single chapter of a book that is a dozen pages long or something… but I can write many dozen-page long books or interactives, heehee! Thank you, Father, for making me just how I am, and helping me to be content with exactly what I have right NOW. Please teach me how to help other people more, and cleanse away all the stuffs that I hold onto that gets in the way. Amen.

 
1 Peter 3:3-12 ERV

It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. 
No, your beauty should come from inside you—the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. That beauty will never disappear. It is worth very much to God. 
It was the same with the holy women who lived long ago and followed God. They made themselves beautiful in that same way. They were willing to serve their husbands. 
I am talking about women like Sarah. She obeyed Abraham, her husband, and called him her master. And you women are true children of Sarah if you always do what is right and are not afraid. 
In the same way, you husbands should live with your wives in an understanding way, since they are weaker than you. You should show them respect, because God gives them the same blessing he gives you—the grace of true life. Do this so that nothing will stop your prayers from being heard. 
So all of you should live together in peace. Try to understand each other. Love each other like brothers and sisters. Be kind and humble. 
Don’t do wrong to anyone to pay them back for doing wrong to you. Or don’t insult anyone to pay them back for insulting you. But ask God to bless them. Do this because you yourselves were chosen to receive a blessing. 
The Scriptures say, “If you want to enjoy true life and have only good days, then avoid saying anything hurtful, and never let a lie come out of your mouth. 
Stop doing what is wrong, and do good. Look for peace, and do all you can to help people live peacefully. 

The Lord watches over those who do what is right, and he listens to their prayers. But he is against those who do evil.”
