Good morning Dear Friends and Prayer Partners. This is the very warm day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
When I stepped outside this morning, it felt like a sauna, but the thin sliver of the moon was valiantly shining in the hazy eastern sky. Tomorrow it may not be visible.
I took a very, warm walk yesterday morning, but saw a young gator sunning on the bank across the canal, where I saw the huge one a couple weeks ago. Then I walked a little further, and saw Mama gator on the watch. Apparently, the signs are not being read, because a plastic bottle was by her head. I had talked with Terry for a few minutes before my walk, and he said the signs would not be effective. He is right.
Anyway, I kept on going to the tower and was in time to see another gator swimming quickly for the shelter of the tower, He was about 8 ft. long, and in a big hurry. As he reached the tower, he quit swimming and coasted right underneath me. I could see his legs pulled back as he coasted.
I also noticed a bit of beauty as a cardinal perched on the shelter roof and sang his happy tune for a few minutes. God is Awesome!
From the Promise Bible, Psalm 34 NLT
"I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord,
Let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness,
let us exalt his name together....
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who trust in Him!
Let the Lord's people show him reverence,
for those who honor him will have all they need.
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry,
but those who trust in the Lord
will never lack any good thing.
Come, my children, and listen to me,
and I will teach you to fear the Lord.
Do any of you want to live
a life that is long and good?
Then watch your tongue!
Keep your lips from telling lies!
Turn away from evil and do good.
Work hard at living in peace with others.
The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right;
his ears are open to their cries for help.
The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.
He rescues them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted.
He rescues those who are crushed in spirit.
Blessed be the name of the Lord!!
I always thank God for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
