Thoughts for the Day

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

When I stepped outside this morning, Venus and the moon had disappeared! But in the west and directly overhead, I could see all the stars and in the darkness, I stood still and saw a tiny light blinking far above...a plane I am sure flying swiftly to its destination.

Yesterday I enjoyed the breeze on my face as I walked on the boardwalk. I was a little later than usual walking , but there were not many people, so it was good, I could hear little rustlings in the shrubbery, but could not see the creatures making the noise. Did not see any gators or babies, but they are around somewhere, I am sure.

As I approached the bridge, I could see reflected in the calm water, the trees and ibis. Occasionally, a great white heron is posing, while intently gazing at the water, looking for that elusive fish. A great picture of Florida! God is good!

Here is an anonymous poem with a lot of good suggestions:

Take time to work,
It is the price of success.
Take time to think,
It is the source of power.
Take time to play,
It is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read,
It is the foundation of wisdom.
Take time to be friendly,
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to love and be loved,
It is the privilege of the gods.
take time to share,
Live is too short to be selfish.
Take time to laugh,
Laughter is the music of the soul.

And I would add, Take time to pray... It is the foundation of your day.

"Now to him Who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work in you all; to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen! "

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

Love and hugs,
