Independence Day

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! And Happy 4th of July! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! A day for picnics, thunderstorms permitting, and fireworks and patriotic music!

Yesterday I had a wonderful walk on the wet boardwalk at the park and stopped to speak to Mama gator back at her old nest. She has grown so much, she is huge! She was totally out of the water and lying not four feet below me, all eight feet of her! People have already been throwing bottles and cans at her...can't understand such ignorance!!

Then I walked on to the tower and watched a pair of ospreys circling lazily over the lake...I was hoping to see one of them hover, but, it didn't happen.

As we drove in to the park, two smaller gators were sunning on the bank, right across from Terry's house. God is good!

Since most of you are not working today I thought I would just send this appropriate scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14:

"Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land."

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

Love and hugs,
