Roamin' thru Romans

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! We were really early birds today as we had to be at the VA at 6:45am for Louis' lab work. But the traffic was light and we made good time and found a handicapped parking space right in front of the building. Thank you, Lord! Louis had a much longer walk than he is used to, but he made it down the long walk to the elevators and the long hall to the lab, so he can rest the rest of the day.

Yesterday, I walked to the tower and, of course, stopped at the gator nest, to speak to Mama gator. I thought she wasn't there, but kept looking and found her hiding under some thick ferns... the reason being, people have already broken off branches to poke at her to try to get her to move. She is hiding to try to get some peace. I went earlier than usual, so there weren't so many people and it was cooler. On my way back, I stopped in the building to get a drink, and there was my friend, Gail, with her granddaughter! God is good!

From Romans 8 NLT:

For if you already have something, you don't need to hope for it. But if we look forward to something we don't have yet, we must wait patiently and confidently.
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don't even know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God's own will. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

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

Love and hugs,
