Philippians 2:14
In 1997 I listened to Philippians many times and I wrote these verses in my journal.  I entitled it “Life Guidelines That Lead to Soaring.”  Recently, I read “Twittering God’s Story” on The Cruciform Life blog and I remembered what I wrote.  As “twittering” is a current trend, I thought it would be fun to write “Twittering Philippians!”  Please view this not as a legalistic list but as little love notes about how to live for our Lord.

Due to word processing circumstances beyond my control I have been having spacing problems with this post.  I am giving up being a perfectionist and posting this anyway…..But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
