I have been rather lax this week with writing – why? Occupied I suppose — I am anticipating more occupation mid-week next week too. But that does not mean you all are not on my mind — I have a blanket request for you all in my daily prayer journal. I read 2 Thessalonians 2

Windows and sunshine. I’m not kidding. This very sight is one of the things for which I give thanks – often. Not just today as a writing prompt. Even though it is. How lavishly fortunate we are to have a place, a roof over our heads with walls and windows in all our rooms to
The Anti-Christ. Perhaps he is walking among us today (personally, I think he is) yet he has not been revealed to us. However, his spirit is clearly here and working among us; especially with some. 1 John 4:3 New King James Version 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh

Back to 2 Thessalonians 2 today. 2 Thessalonians 2 13 But we have to keep thanking God for you always, brothers whom the Lord loves, because God chose you as firstfruits for deliverance by giving you the holiness that has its origin in the Spirit and the faithfulness that has its origin in the truth.
