Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- that the Lord is in control
- a quiet country life
- still-blooming roses
- the hammering of a pileated woodpecker
- the smell of a newly-opened bale of hay
Silver Sunday

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made 
for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live 
peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2:1,2 NIV
