“Rejoice always in the Lord. Again I will say: rejoice!” (Philippians 4.4)

Ana Cecilia was looking for a Book of the Bible for her devotional moments when a friend invited her to study Philippians via zoom for six weeks. The letter is very propitious for the time we are living in, Paul’s emphasis on Christians to rejoice is exciting! Especially because of the situation in which the Apostle was when he wrote the letter: it is clear that such contentment is only possible when we think of the perspective of eternity.

Tragically, two days after the last online encounter, a dear friend of Ana’s and also part of the group died in an asthmatic crisis. In the same week, twice the family received in their garage, the visit of *monocle snake, in addition to the situation with covid-19. “These are the constant reminders that life is a breath and that all we live here is God’s grace and have helped us bring contentment in the Lord, while we pray for dear bereaved friends and friends,” says Ana Cecilia.

*Translated from English, the monoculum snake, also called the monocellate snake, is a poisonous species of snake spread throughout south and southeast Asia (Wikipedia).
