A Benediction for this week

Good morning, dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the chilly day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

When I stepped outside this morning, stars were brilliant, but I could see no sign of the moon. I know it is getting full, but it was hidden earlier.

Yesterday, we saw a large, fat gator basking in the sun at the park, and lots of people enjoying the perfect weather with picnics and walking. God os good!

Something strange happened last night. I stayed up later than usual watching the three hankie Hall of Fame presentation, and when I came back to the bedroom, the two anniversary balloons were floating in front of the mirror. What is strange is that they had to float down the hall, through the living room and I never saw them!! Creepy. Their long ribbons got caught in the fan and now they have a very short string hanging down. The fan has not been untangled yet...not the ceiling fan, but a floor fan. Sigh. Another job. But at least I will learn how to clean the floor fan... :o)

I saw this in the Hymns for the Family of God and thought it would be great for this week:

May the Lord take from you all resistance to His will.
May He give to you the fullness of His life.
and the sufficiency of His practical, daily help.
May the Lord send you during this week to come to those
He can only serve through your unique experience of His
and your very special abilities.
May the Lord bring us together even when we are apart,
as we learn to be supportive of one another in our prayers
and our service.

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

Love and hugs,
