Prayer for you

"I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy." Philippians 1: 3-4

Let me start todays blog by telling you I prayed for you lastnight, you, my blog friends! I had gone to bed early, thought I would read some Philippians and the above verse was about as far as I got. My eyes too tired to read but my head not tired enough to sleep, so I took it as a sign to pray for my friends. And I chose my blog-reading friends! And I've included the photos I took through the Similkameen river valley yesterday as I went out for a leisurely drive with my camera.

First I prayed for those of you who read my blog but do not comment. I am so glad you take the time to visit my blog & I hope you can be blessed by what is written here.
