Cruisin' thru Colossians

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! Have you noticed that now the Royal Poinciana trees are flaming with their orange blossoms? Now, that the jacarandas are fading, God give new beauty in the Poinciana tree...always something of color and beauty to see!

We watched the baby hawks moving around in the tree at the Park yesterday. They certainly are big, now, but Ma and Pa continue to fly in lizards, frogs, snakes and other delicacies to stuff the little mouths.

Speaking of little mouths, Mama duck and at least, 13 pin-feathered babies were moving along the street yesterday morning, They flow so fast they are hard to count, but she clucks at them and they stay fairly close together. God is awesome!

From the Promise Bible:

Colossians 3:13

Since God chose you to be the holy people whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

You must make allowance for each other's faults and forgive the person who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you so you must forgive others. And the most important piece of clothing you must wear is love. Love is what binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are all called to live in peace.

And always be thankful.

Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, live in your hearts and make you wise. Use his words to teach and counsel each other. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus, all the while giving thanks through him to God the Father.

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

Love and hugs,
Amaryllis (24 and counting)
