Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the cloudy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! As I stepped outside this morning, I looked for stars, and hoped I could see a meteor flashing by, but there was too much light and the puffy clouds interfered. Has anyone seed the meteors, yet? This is the week for them.
Well, I heard thunder late last night, but we did not get any rain. However, our gutters are still running with water, which the ducks really like.
I splashed through the water on the boardwalk once again, yesterday. When I got through my walk, I was dripping! Mama gator was out getting breakfast, I guess, or hidden on the other side of the nest, because she was not visible. If the rain keeps up, there will be plenty of water for the babies when they hatch. I like to hear them grunt when they come out and after they start moving around.
I was in time, as I walked to the tower, to see the six or seven footer come swimming swiftly in to head under the tower, and as I started up the steps, I heard a tremendous thump and splash and out he came, with a hydrilla leaf on his head. He must have found something to eat underneath in the thick hydrilla. God is good!
From Ecclesiastes 4,5,and 8 NLT
"Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person fails, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken."
"People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich are always worrying and seldom get a good night's sleep."
"And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life--that is indeed a gift from God. People who do this rarely look with sorrow on the past, for God has given them reasons for joy."
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
