Psoaring thru Psalm 4

Good morning, dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the windy, transition day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Did you happen to see the brilliant Venus in the southwestern sky right after sunset last night? I was totally surprised to see the swollen moon right overhead in the darkening but still blue sky! Gorgeous! God is Awesome!

Yesterday I took a walk in the Park, and saw lots of activity going on. Apparently, the Audubon Society was out in full force with tables set up with refreshments, and lots of cars in the circle... people with cameras and telescopes, dressed in their hats and boots, ready for a tour to see what birds have migrated from the snowy North.

As for me, I just walked and looked and saw Mama gator in her same spot where she has been for months, but I didn't see a baby. I saw a flock of birds circling over the lake, but couldn't tell what they were, and then, two ospreys suddenly appeared and I watched to see if one would hover, but it didn't. It was a lovely morning for a walk, but I was very warm when I finished. God is good! BTW, apparently Francia did not retire, as she was teaching a class when I arrived. Good for the pupils who learn a lot about nature from her teaching.

Psalm 4:1-8 NLT
Answer me when I call,
O God who declares me innocent.
Take away my distress,
Have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

How long will you people ruin my reputation?
How long will you make these
groundless accusations?
How long will you pursue lies?

You can be sure of this;
The Lord has set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.

Don't sin by letting anger gain control over you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent.
Offer proper sacrifices, and trust in the Lord.

Many people say, "Who will show us
better times?Let the smile of your face shine on us, Lord.
You have given me greater joy
than those who have abundant harvests
of grain and wine.

I will lie down in peace and sleep
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me

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

Love and hugs,

Happy Birthday, Lee!
