Good chilly morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the winter day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
Well, we have the heater going this morning! I stepped outside and the wind was very chilly even though the temp is in the fifties, after all our warm weather it seems very chilly. We are just not used to this!
I zipped up my jacket on my way to the first bridge yesterday, because the wind was blowing in my face, but I soon warmed up with a brisk walk. I hung over the railing at the first shelter, looking for the babies and Ma, but didn't see them, so I finished my walk going to the tower, and noticed the gallinule couple were back, busily pecking around.
Then as I came back to the shelter, a couple there told me where to look. I still didn't see the babies, but hung around looking and soon Mama came to get some bread the couple had thrown in. Tsk, tsk. When she came swimming out from under the shelter, the babies scrambled to get out of the way. There were only two, though. But God is good!!
Psalm 20 from the Promise Bible NLT:
"In times of trouble, may the Lord respond to your cry. May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary and strengthen you from Jerusalem. May he remember all your gifts and look favorably on your burnt offerings.
May he grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans. May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory, flying banners to honor our God. May the Lord answer all your prayers....
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons, but we boast in the Lord our God.Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Respond to our cry for help."
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
