Easin' Thru Ephesians

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the blue sky day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Yes, once again the sky is blue, after about a week of the smoky haze we have had from the wildfires burning all over Florida. Now, Please God, send more rain to put out the fires and end this drought. Amen

I took a short walk yesterday, because once again, the boardwalk was taped off..this time right by the first covered shelter, and Bob was not there so I could beg him to let me through. They are putting treatment on the wood, so actually, the only reason it is blocked off is to protect the machine they were using.

But I saw an anhinga coming out from the water, with tail feathers all splayed out, and stood and watched the baby hawks moving around in the crowded nest, until Ma hawk suddenly flew out. The parents probably lose weight until the young'uns get out of the nest, because they are so busy gathering food for them. God's Creation is fascinating!

Excerpts from Ephesians from the NLT

"Work hard, but not just to please your masters when they are watching. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free.

"So be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do....Then you will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, making music to the Lord in your hearts. And you will always give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

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

Love and hugs,
