    2. My favorite verse in the Bible (at the moment) is Philippians 4:19 – And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
    3. I laughed this week because there was a squirrel in the street in front of my car that could not make up its mind which side of the road it wanted to be on. I had to sit patiently and wait for it to decide where it was going before I could continue on my drive home.

    2. My favorite verse(s) in the Bible are Isaiah 58:6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter– when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. 9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

We’re all going outside,” to which Annika said, “I don’t want to go outside. It’s beautiful in here!” Can’t argue with that logic.

So what do you think?
