Thoughts for the day

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the beautiful but dry, day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! We all need to be praying for rain, for everything is drying up!

Yesterday, the hawks were still attracting photographers and binocular people and will continue until they leave the nest.

We have two new families of ducks in our neighborhood. One has a running count of 17 ducklings and the other 29!! While they are cute now, I know many will not survive, and the population has reached a saturation point... I still enjoy watching the busy little critters!

This is a little story from an old FCC newsletter:

Grandpa's Drug Problem

My generation just might have been lucky. I had a "drug" problem, but I turned out all right anyway. I was drug to church on Sunday mornings. I was drug to weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials. I was drug out of bed early in the morning. I was drug to the woodshed when I was disrespectful to my parents. I was also drug to the woodshed when I did not put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me. I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden and flower beds and out of dad's soybean fields.

Those "drugs" still run through my veins and they affect everything I do, say and think.

Signed, Grandpa

Jude 24 NLT

"And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring you into his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy. All glory to him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to him, in the beginning, now, and forevermore. Amen."

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

Love and hugs,
