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, the clouds were fewer, but still no stars or moon were visible. The wind is still blowing from "Ike"  in the Gulf and I pray for safety for all the people in its path.

All was quiet in the park yesterday as I drove through, but we saw a peacock in the middle of the street and had to wait for Miss Peahen to move out of the way!  When I talked with Mike, the naturalist at Ft. DeSoto now, I told him about the coyote seen in the park and he said that he was probably still in the neighborhood, because of the abundance of food. Lots of bunnies, squirrels and dog and cat food in the surrounding area. Sad to think of, but that is part of God's plan for survival.

Yesterday I backed into another Honda in the Publix parking lot, and did damage to my van and a little to the other car. I was not rejoicing at the time, but I should have been, because no one was hurt. I am weak, but He is strong! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:


What do we do when we don't know what to do?

2 Chronicles 20:12 O our God, won't you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.

We don't have to know what do do, but we do need to know where to look. As the saying goes, it isn't so much what we know, but who we know!

Proverbs 3:5-7 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. 

Don't be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn your back on evil.

Trust the Lord  to direct your steps, even when the way is confusing. God will guide you.

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

Love and hugs,
