Good morning, Father.
Thank you for the nice rain and darkened, cozy house today. It feels like the atmosphere is much more relaxed than it has been on my husband’s other Sundays off, and he is even resting — yay! Please let your peace reign in our home today, and let us all feel your presence, reminding us to be grateful for all that you have blessed us with. Thank you, Lord! :o)

Joshua 24:13-15 ERV

‘I, the Lord, gave that land to you. You didn’t work for that land–I gave it to you. You did not build those cities–I gave them to you. And now you live in that land and in those cities. You have vineyards and olive trees, but you did not have to plant those gardens.'”
Then Joshua said to the people, “Now you have heard the Lord’s words. So you must respect the LORD and sincerely serve him. Throw away the false gods that your ancestors worshiped. That was something that happened a long time ago on the other side of the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Now you must serve only the LORD.
“But maybe you don’t want to serve the LORD. You must choose for yourselves today. Today you must decide who you will serve. Will you serve the gods that your ancestors worshiped when they lived on the other side of the Euphrates River? Or will you serve the gods of the Amorites who lived in this land? You must choose for yourselves. But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.

Father, I thank you for bringing myself and my family through so many trials and tribulations. I thank you for gifting us with healthy bodies and loving hearts. I thank you that each of us has a place to live, a roof over our heads and a bed to sleep in and clothes and food to sustain us. Father, you have truly blessed my family! Please stretch forth your hand like a wing over each of us, give us your favor and protective, nurturing care. Thank you for being our Shepherd and our Comforter. Be with each of us today, my Lord, and let each of your blessings upon us yield fruit for your glory! Amen! 😀
