Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the overcast morning that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped outside this morning, I noticed the wetness of the grass and puddles here and there from the rain last night. Our grass was mowed yesterday and received a good wetting. My skimpy Mexican petunias are a lovely deep lavender from all the rain. the blossoms only last for a day, and then fall off, but share their beauty in a glorious way!
We drove through the Park yesterday morning, and noticed that not many people were there yet. I watched an anhinga waddling into position to spread its wings to dry. They are not built for walking, because of very short legs, so they are very amusing when they try to walk! God is Awesome!
From the NLT Psalm 145:
I will praise you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. I will bless you every day, and I will praise you forever. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! His greatness is beyond discovery!
Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts. I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles. Your owe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness. Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness; they will sing with joy of your righteousness.
The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to get angry; full of unfailing love, the Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation. All of your works will thank you, Lord, and your faithful followers will bless you. They will talk together about the glory of your kingdom; they will celebrate examples of your power. They will tell about your mighty deeds and about the majesty and glory of your reign. For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule generation after generation.
The Lord is faithful in all he says, he is gracious in all he does. The Lord helps the fallen, and lifts up those bent beneath their loads. All eyes look to you for help; you give them their food as thy need it. When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in everything he does; he is filled with kindness. The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him sincerely. He fulfills the desires of those who love him; He hears their cries for help and rescues them. The Lord protects all those who love him but he destroys the wicked.
I will praise the Lord, and everyone on earth will bless his holy name forever and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
