Psoaring thru Psalm 37

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!

As I stepped outside this morning, I felt a few sprinkles, so maybe we will be getting rain from Fay, which is pouring rain on the East coast.

Yesterday I was so excited to watch Mama gator as she moved out of the water and kept lifting her head as if listening. I know that the babies make grunting noises as they break the eggs, so that must be what she heard. She crawled up on top of the nest and started scraping with her muscular foot to uncover them, and then started down the side where we couldn't see her.
She had an audience of two Canadians, who were delaying their trip back home, just to watch the babies hatch, and another visitor who was as interested as we were in the happening.

I called Francia, the teacher, to tell her, and she came walking out very excited. Perfect timing, as school just started and now as she conducts tours for the students, she will really have something to show them! God is good!

I hope to get back today to see if they have hatched!

From the Bible NLT:

Psalm 37:1-11
Don't worry about the wicked.
Don't envy those who do wrong,
For like grass, they soon fade away.
Like springtime flowers, they
soon wither.

Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the
land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart's desires.

Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you.
He will make your innocence
as clear as the dawn,
and the justice of your cause will
shine like the noonday sun.

Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others--
it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord
will possess the land.

In a little while, the wicked will disappear.
Though you look for them, they
will be gone.
Those who are gentle and lowly
will possess the land.
They will live in prosperous security.

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

Love and hugs,
