This rolling stone does gather moss as she rolls downhill. And the moss and mud needs to be washed away before she rests in the valley of peace.
Today the Lord provided such a shampoo after a mossy morning. I had just finished my lunch of dal, rice and vegetables when my cell phone rang. It was my cousin inviting me to her Mom 's (my aunt Joy 's) 82nd birthday celebration. That filled me with such joyful anticipation that I forgot all the irritations of the morning. Now I am looking forward to an evening with my cousins and aunt.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Phillipians 4; 4-9 NIV (BIBLE)
