" 20 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.22 If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know!23 I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;24 but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,26 so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me."
A litter from Paul and Timothy to the church at Philippi.
"I thank God for this day, For the sun in the sky, For my mom and my dad, For my piece of apple pie! For our home on the ground, For His love that's all around, That's why I say thanks every day! Because a thankful heart is a happy heart! I'm glad for what I have, Thats an easy way to start! For the love that He shares, 'Cause He listens to my prayers, That's why I say thanks every day!" Many of you may have heard this song as a kid or because of your kids. But if we actually listen to the words they are quite great! We should thank God for all the things in life, even the little things! *song by VeggieTales *photo by either me or my mom
