Psoaring thru Psalm 37

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

We can be thankful that the sun is shining and the wind is not quite so strong and it looks like a beautiful day extra day that the Lord has given us!

I looked at an anhinga perched on a drainage pipe at the park yesterday, and noticed the black and white of its wings and feathers. I was thinking how uniquely God had formed this bird that swims underwater for its meals and then dries out its feathers so it can fly. A walker came toward me and said, "That's an ugly bird, isn't it?"

I guess it all depends on your point of view. God is Awesome!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 37:3-9
"Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart's desires.

Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him and he will help you,
He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn,
and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.

Be still in the presence of the Lord
and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others-
it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord will
possess the land."

John Wesley advised:

do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
to all the people you can
as long as you can.

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

Love and hugs,
