Psoaring thru Psalms

Good morning Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped outside this dark morning, I noticed Venus in the dark sky and lots of other stars dimly glittering. This must be the time of year when all the planets and stars are further away from earth, and we can't see them too well.

I missed my walk yesterday, but did go through the park and noticed it had been freshly mowed and lots of out of towners were enjoying the sun and the picnics. Some were just sitting in their lawn chairs, looking at the canal and watching the anhingas and the ibis as they went about their business. I saw a anhinga drying out flat on the ground. Very unusual. They are usually on a branch or the top of a light pole to dry out. The one on the ground must have felt very secure. God is good!

Psalm 37 excerpts from the Promise Bible NLT:

"Don't worry about the wicked. Don't envy those who do wrong.
For like the grass, they soon fade away.
Like springtime flowers, they soon wither.

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 conscience 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...

It is better to be godly and have little
than to be evil and possess much.
For the strength of the wicked will be shattered,
but the Lord takes care of the godly."

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

Love and hugs,
