More Work

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the warmer day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I hope some of you early risers saw the brilliant full moon shining in the western sky this morning. The cloud edge was in a semi-circle away from the moon, so it really framed it. God is Awesome!

I have noticed a lot more woodstorks around our lakes and canals lately. More so than past winters. Yesterday I saw a flock of about six looking very depressed together. Something about the woodstorks always looks like they are in mourning..heads down and all huddled up.

But, we have an azalea blooming, and it is bright and beautiful and the other birds sing and look happy! The ibis at the park always look industrious and busy and soon the trees will be sending out new leaves. Spring is coming! God has made everything beautiful in His time!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

What does the Lord promise to those who work hard?

Proverbs 22:29 "Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than ordinary people."

Faithful work makes a way for us to do greater work. God promises to bless us as we use the gifts he has given us.

Proverbs 10:4 "Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich."

Proverbs 21:5 "Good planning in hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty."

Psalm 145:14 "The Lord helps the fallen and lifts up those bent beneath their loads."

As with any burden we bear, we can trust God to hilp us on the job.

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

Love and hugs,
