Hello, Lord.
Thank you for allowing me a little more space this morning, as I’ve felt achy and dizzy since before I even got out of bed this morning. Thank you for the patience of my Mate and the kindness of my adopted “parents”. Thank you for bringing me to a place in my website restructuring that I can just leisurely add new content to it, without needing my brain for intensive decision-making. Thank you for each of my four children, each of whom is a delight to me in their own unique way. Thank you for my broad range of interests, equally fascinated by dog breeds and architectural landmarks, lol. I do not see how I could ever run out of interesting content to create on the new site! 😀

 
James 5:10-16 ERV

Brothers and sisters, follow the example of the prophets who spoke for the Lord. They suffered many bad things, but they were patient. 
And we say that those who accepted their troubles with patience now have God’s blessing. You have heard about Job’s patience. You know that after all his troubles, the Lord helped him. This shows that the Lord is full of mercy and is kind. 
My brothers and sisters, it is very important that you not use an oath when you make a promise. Don’t use the name of heaven, earth, or anything else to prove what you say. When you mean yes, say only “yes.” When you mean no, say only “no.” Do this so that you will not be judged guilty. 
Are you having troubles? You should pray. Are you happy? You should sing. 
Are you sick? Ask the elders of the church to come and rub oil on you in the name of the Lord and pray for you. 
If such a prayer is offered in faith, it will heal anyone who is sick. The Lord will heal them. And if they have sinned, he will forgive them. 
So always tell each other the wrong things you have done. Then pray for each other. Do this so that God can heal you. Anyone who lives the way God wants can pray, and great things will happen.
