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 morning, it was cooler and everything was wet from last night's rain. No stars were visible, but once again I saw a plane so high, I could only see the lights blinking. Or was it a UFO?

Yesterday, my knee felt good enough for me to walk out to see Mama gator, who was keeping a vigil by her nest, to keep it from any predators. The water is so high, she was totally submerged except for her head. She looked at me and I looked at her and spoke, but she didn't reply. :o)

Then, as I walked back, I stopped at the bridge to cool off, and a young gator came swimming under the bridge, and slowly made its way up the canal, toward the lake, leaving a small wake behind. God is Awesome!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

How am I supposed to plan my life?

Proverbs 2:1-11 My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of justice and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair: and you will know how to find the right course of action every time. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise planning will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.

A plan is only as good as the information upon which it's based. Our human intellect is limited and inadequate. Apart from the Lord, our plans are liable to fail. the Lord promises wisdom to those who rely on his word and depend on his Spirit.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.

As we seek God , he will guide us in making our plans.

What if my plans fall short of God's plans for me?

You can make many plans, but the Lord's purpose will prevail.

Our plans cannot mess up God's plans!

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

Love and hugs,
