Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the cool day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!
Oh, what a beautiful morning! The sun is shining and mostly the sky is clear. When I stepped outside this morning early, a half moon was very brightly shining, but for some reason, Venus is no longer in sight. The heavens declare the glory of God!
I had a good walk yesterday in the Park, and will be glad when the trees no longer look so stark. All the leaves are off the maples, but, of course, there is plenty of green shrubbery and trees. The wind was blowing, and making waves on the lake, but I stood at the tower and watched an osprey gliding and enjoying the thermals... he hardly flapped his wings as he soared higher and higher. God is great!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
"I will praise the Lord at all times,
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only of the Lord;
let all who are encouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness'
let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me,
freeing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be
radiant with joy;
no shadow or shame will darken their faces.
I cried out to the Lord in my suffering,
and he heard me.
He set me free from all my fears
For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him
And he rescues them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!
Let the Lord's people show him reverence,
For those who honor him will have all they need.
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry.
But those who trust in the Lord will
never lack any good thing."
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
