Good Labor day morning, Dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

The waning moon was shining brightly when I stepped outside this morning...I would like to have slept a little later, but I have an infected cuticle and the pain woke me up early. Yes, I have been to the doctor and will go back tomorrow, but it is very painful!

When I went through the Park Saturday, it had been raining, and the trees were dripping, but we saw a wedding party being photographed. It was an Asian couple...the bride in white satin and the attendants in pink satin. I wondered how they could keep their gowns from being ruined on the hem by the wetness, but I guess you have to take your chances on the weather, when you plan an outdoor wedding!

Just a short word about work from the Promise Bible NLT, since this is a holiday:

Psalm 90:12 "Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom."

Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
"There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace. What do people really get for all their hard work? I have thought about this in connection with the various kinds of work God has given people to do. God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end."

Valuing time begins with seeing it from God's perspective. When we do this, we learn that there is always time for accomplishing God's plans for our lives.

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

Love and hugs,
