Psoaring thru Psalm 138

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! This morning as I stepped out I noticed a nice breeze , which has not been in evidence for awhile. Even though the pre-dawn temps are in the 80s, it was nice to feel the wind.

I walked out to see Mama gator yesterday, and she was partially out of the water, with branches and an uprooted tree lying beside her. Over the weekend, people were busy, trying to make her move or do something. I snapped a couple photos of her, but because it is so dark in the swampy area and she is black, they may not turn out.

On my way back over the bridge, I met Mike leading a big group of little campers, on their way to see Mama gator, I received an affectionate greeting from Mike, followed by the same from Steve, who was bringing up the rear. They also had a new naturalist with them I had not met,,,no greeting from him. :o) God is good!

Psalm 138 NLT

"I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will sing your praises before the gods.
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
I will give thanks to your name
for your unfailing love and faithfulness,
because your promises are backed
by the honor of your name.
When I pray you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me the
strength I need.

Every king in all the earth will give you thanks, O Lord,
for all of them will hear your words.
Yes, they will sing about the Lord's ways,
for the glory of the Lord is very great.
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble.
but he keeps his distance from the proud.

Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will preserve me against the anger
of my enemies!
Your power will save me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life-
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Don't abandon me, for you made me."

"There are three things that will endure-
faith, hope, and love-
and the greatest of these
is love.'
1 Corinthians 13:13

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

Love and hugs,
