Happy Weekend !

"Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-7

Below is an excerpt from the book I am reading, ("Prayer: Does it Make any Difference?" by Philip Yancey):

"More than anything else in life, I want to know God.  The psychiatrist Gerald C. May observed, 'After twenty years of listening to the yearnings of people's hearts, I am convinced that human beings have an inborn desire for God.  Whether we are consciously religious or not, this desire is our deepest longing and most precious treasure.' Surely, if we are made in God's own image, God will find a way to fulfill that deepest longing.  Prayer is that way."

(Note:the flowers were a lovely gift to me from my awesome husband!)
