Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the beautiful day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I saw Venus still valiantly shining and lighting up the sky, so the other stars were hardly visible this morning.
Spring has definitely sprung. Although the azaleas have almost finished blooming there are still some buds and the bushes are growing at an alarming rate, even with no rain. There are still some flowers on the azaleas at the Park but they cut those bushes back drastically every year, so they don't have as many blooms.
We sat for awhile after a short walk yesterday and just enjoyed the breeze and seeing all the people walking and taking pictures. God's Creation is awesome!
From Quiet Moments:
1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV
The very God of peace sanctify you wholly, and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved bleameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
A benediction is the pronouncing of a divine blessing.
The only requirement for a benediction is this: that no sin or unforgiveness stands between you and the Lord Jesus Christ. If you question the purity of your heart, tonight is a good time to ask the Lord to cleanse you and renew a right spirit within you.
By doing so, you can end each day with a keen awareness of God's blessing and His claim on your life.
The benediction inscribed at Gloucester Cathedral is one you may want to use:
Go on your way in peace.
Be of good courage.
Hold fast that which is good.
Render to no man evil for evil.
Strengthen the fainthearted.
Support the weak,.
Help and cheer the sick.
Honor all men.
Love and serve the Lord.
May the blessing of God be upon you.
And remain with you forever.
So be it. And have a blessed good night!
IT IS DISTRUST OF GOD TO BE
TROUBLED ABOUT WHAT IS TO
COME. IMPATIENCE AGAINST GOD TO
BE TROUBLED WITH WHAT IS
PRESENT; AND ANGER AT GOD TO
BE TROUBLED FOR WHAT IS PAST.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
