Roamin' thru Romans

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped outside this morning, the air was cool again and the stars were still twinkling. I saw a glimpse of the new moon Sunday night in the southwest...just a thin sliver. It's supposed to be full right around Halloween.

We had a busy morning yesterday. We left for Bay Pines in the dark at 6:30AM and made good time getting out there, then had to do a lot of walking inside the buildings. It's a huge place and I asked directions from several people along the way. After Louis' lab tests, we took the shuttle to the Canteen for some breakfast. I was so disappointed in the menu. They had three different kinds of white gravy, biscuits, sausage, bacon ,scrambled eggs, and cereal in a box. We did the best we could at getting something healthy, but I couldn't believe a hospital could serve such unhealthy food! Oh, well, it was just a one time thing for us.

One thing good, though, while on the shuttle, I saw a beautiful sunrise. We had the same shuttle driver three times and he was very helpful at giving directions. After we left the hospital, we drove through the War Veterans' Park. It was quiet and peaceful and the water was beautiful. God is good!

From the Promise Bible:

Romans 12 excerpts:

God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well. So if God has given the ability to prophesy, speak out when you have faith that God is speaking through you. If your gift is that of serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, do a good job of teaching. If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously, And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly....

Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do your part to live in peace with everyone, as much as possible.

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

Love and hugs,
