Good morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
Seems like it takes a while for me to adjust to the time change. I woke up at the usual time this morning, only it was an hour later! My biological clock didn't change yet!
As I stepped outside, though, the brilliant half moon and Venus were putting on a show to let me know God is in control of the universe.
My shoulder is gradually getting better..enough so that it is a bit easier to reach this keyboard, but I still cannot comb my hair with my right hand! Frustration! Friends have been so kind to bring food, thanks, Christa, and give us rides, thanks, Karin and Jim!
I just heard the early birds chirping, so dawn is breaking!
From Quiet Moments:
Jesus taught his followers, "Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them wil fall to the ground without your Father's leave (consent) and notice...Fear not, then: you are of more value than many sparrows." Matthew 10:29, 31
The psalmist also recognized God's thorough and intimate knowledge of us.Read these words from Psalm 139 and be encouraged. The Lord not only knows you, but He knows precisely what you are facing and experiencing today. Even if you are not aware of His presence, you can rest assured He is by your side O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought. You chart the path ahead of me, and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment, you know where I am. You know what I am going to say before I even say it. You both precede and follow me, and place your hand of blessing on my head.
This is too glorious, too wonderful...I can never be lost to your Spirit! I can never get away from my God!
You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your Book!
How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can't even count how many times a day your thoughts turn towards me. and when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!
Psalms 139:1-7, 16-19 TLB
Before God created the universe,
He already had you in mind.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
