Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

With the blooming of my pure white Iris I have been meditating on verses that speak of purity.

Psalm 51:10 "Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."

Psalm 119:9 "How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your word."

Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God."

Titus 2:5 "To be self-controlled and pure....."

Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brothers, 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 on these things."

Dear Lord, create in us a pure heart, please renew a steadfast spirit within me. Help me to live in your Word to keep my way pure. Lord, if I keep my heart pure, there is the promise I will see you. Lord, help me to be self controlled and pure in thought and action. And Father, can my thoughts only be on those things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. I long to live a pure life and honor you with that purity. Amen

An update on Howard. He had the surgery and got his new heart. They said the surgery couldn't not have gone better. Now there is a waiting time of 7 days to see if the heart be compatible. Thank you for your continued prayers.
