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!
I hope you all saw the sun setting last night with the sliver of the new moon showing right above it! Gorgeous! Not a cloud in the sky to dim the reddish hues slowly fading into darkness. And this morning is just as beautiful with the sun shining brightly, even though I couldn't see the stars for the haze. But God is Awesome!
There was only one baby gator visible yesterday, so I don't know if the rest were hiding, or whether they are still alive. I hope to find out today. But while I was at the shelter, the huge gator was sunning on the opposite bank, and a Mosquito control truck was slowly approaching, so I watched and, sure enough, when the truck got too close, the gator gave a mighty leap right into the canal, and disappeared. He moved so fast!
We saw Mr. Peacock with his tail feathers spread out like a bride's train on the ground, as he was getting ready to fold them up, so we missed the show that time. I'm sure we'll see him again strutting slowly around.
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Happy are those who fear the Lord,
Yes, happy are those who delight in
doing what he commands.
Their children will be successful everywhere.
An entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
they themselves will be wealthy,
and their good deeds will never be forgotten.
When darkness overtakes the godly, light
will come bursting in.
They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
All goes well for those who are generous.
Who lend freely and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil circumstances.
Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
They do not fear bad news;
they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
They are confident and fearless.
and can face their foes triumphantly.
They give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will never be forgotten.
They will have influence and honor.
The wicked will be infuriated when they see this.
They will grind their teeth in anger.
they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
