God's Love

Good morning, dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is another beautiful day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped out side this morning, it was already daylight at 6:30! I have decided not to get up at five any more for awhile. Life is good!

Yesterday we went on an adventure after getting the car washed. I drove out to Millennium Park where we had not been for a very long time. It is a beautiful park, very large and well kept looking. We sat for a little while in the shade, but could already feel the heat coming, so I headed back to Seminole and stopped at the Citrus Country store for soft ice cream cones. They were huge! I pulled over in the shade of some trees and we sat in the breeze and licked and licked. God is good!

I went to Sawgrass yesterday, and saw the mowing crew unloading, so today when I visit it should be all mowed and neat looking again! I watched an egret preening himself and the fine feathers were blowing in the wind. He was a pretty sight! Very lacy looking!

From the little book, God's Promises for Men:

God's Love is with a man when;
He brings his problems to God;

If you would prepare your heart,
and stretch out your hands toward Him;
IF iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away,
And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
Then surely you could lift up your face without spot;
Yes, you could be steadfast and not fear;
because you would forget your misery,
And remember it as waters that have passed away,
And your life would be brighter than noonday.
Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
And you would be secure, because there is hope;
Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
Job 11:13-18

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their prayers;
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.
And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. And do not be afraid of their threats, not be troubled. But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.
1 Peter 3:12-15

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

Love and hugs,
