Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is another warm day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
I went to sleep to the sound of thunder last night, but never heard the rain come down!
Saturday we watched a wedding at the Park, after the rain the night before, and the wedding party stood on the wet grass, under the dripping trees, while waiting for the bride, dressed in a beautiful, flowing white gown, with a train, to walk with her father down the sidewalk. She had to stop at one point while her dad picked up the train to keep from dragging it through a puddle. They had four attendants and two dogs present....a small but lovely wedding with the groom dressed in a white tux.
One curious thing...on a hill just a few feet from the proceedings, a hawk was on the ground eating his catch of the day, totally oblivious of the goings on just a short distance away. He flew up in a tree, then back down on the ground again. God is good!
From Psalm 1 NLT
"Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners, or join in with scoffers.
But they delight in doing everything the Lord wants-
day and night they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank
bearing fruit each season without fail.
Their leaves never wither,
and in all they do, they prosper.
But this is not true of the wicked.
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction."
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
Amaryllis (4 and counting)
