Phillipians 4:4-9. Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I will say it, Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all, for the Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything but in everything, through prayer, with petition and thanksgiving present your requests to God, and the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. If you have learned anything from me, or seen anything in me, put it into practice. And the God of peace be with you.
You all don't know who 'M' is, and neither do I! On Wednesday of this week, I got a package anonymously in the mail, with a card, a letter, and a wrapped box. When I got home from work, my family was waiting for me, my mom had her camera out and everything. I had told them on the phone that they could open it, but not to breath a word to me until I had opened it myself. So they had repacked it, and I opened up the box, and inside was a Gateway Athlon 3000+ Laptop! M said if I wanted to thank him/her (didn't specify), that I should memorize Phillipians 4:4-9, and I have, and it's also my screen saver on the laptop. I don't know who you are M, and I don't know if you read my blog, but thank you so much! God has surely used you as a tool, there are certain things that had taken place here right before it arrived that made this event mean so much more to me! God is so faithful. I hope you are reading this now and will get this message from me.
