Integrity, con't.

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! As I stepped outside this morning, I saw big puffy, clouds dimming the glow of the half moon, but Venus was shining brightly in the darkness. God is good!

I had mentioned the Parks situation with the cutbacks and for those of you who read the St. Pete Times, you may have noticed the article about it on the Metro section. I wrote a letter to the county parks director relating my concerns about safety, etc. and mailed it off yesterday. Perhaps it will do some good.

I wrote my concerns about the dog excrement all over the park, a couple years ago, and now there are signs, telling people to please pick up after their pets. Letters work! Anyway, it is a lovely place and I enjoy walking there. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

What are the benefits of integrity?

Proverbs 11:3,5 "Good people are guided by their honesty; Treacherous people are destroyed by their dishonesty... the godly are directed by their honesty, the wicked fall beneath their load of sin."

Integrity keeps us from the trap of dishonesty and the destruction that can result.

A Prayer of Praise Jude 1:24
"And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling and who will bring you into his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy. All glory to him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to him, in the beginning, now and forevermore.

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

Love and hugs,
