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 early this morning, the darkness was cool again and the stars were twinkling brightly. 

Our azaleas are blooming more, very out of season, but I hope this doesn't mean that they will not bloom when they are supposed to.

Our bird-of-paradise has more blooms on it, because of all the rain, so everything is slurping up the extra rain we have had.

Since I told you all about the baby gators, yesterday, in a bulletin, there is nothing more to add, except that I hope to find the third nest today. I will see if I can get a better description from Francia today. I am seeing more of our church people walking there lately, so sooner or later, you will see someone you know! I certainly look different than the way I dress to go to church!! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

What are the benefits of integrity?

Proverbs 11:3,5 Good people are guided by their honesty; treacherous people are destroyed by their dishonesty...The godly are directed by their honesty; the wicked fall beneath their load of sin.

Integrity keeps us from the trap of dishonesty and the destruction that can result.

Psalm 15:1-5 Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives, and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Those who refuse to slander others or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends. Those who despise persistent sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the Lord and keep their promises even when it hurts. Those who do not charge interest on the money they lend, and who refuse to accept bribes to testify against the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever.

Our character affects our ability to worship and enjoy fellowship with God. Worship is more acceptable to God and more meaningful to us when we honor the Lord in our daily conduct.

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

Love and hugs,
