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! What a windy, cool morning we have! When I stepped outside earlier, the stars were shining, but I didn't linger long because it was quite cool. I heard a prediction that we will have rain and a cold front Sunday. Hmm. March is going out like a lion!

I spotted an alligator on the side of the canal in front of the weir yesterday, and although his tail was all that was visible, it looked like a big one. An egret was looking intently at the water, as usual. I wonder if they ever look up... While I was in the supermarket parking lot I saw the osprey on her nest and also at Sawgrass Elementary. Seems like the ospreys are building nests everywhere this spring! But God is good!

Courage to be Men and Women of Integrity:

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in his law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Psalm 1:1-6

A good man deals graciously and lends;
He will guide his affairs with discretion,
Surely he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance,
He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast; trusting in the Lord.
Psalm 112:5-7

If I have walked with falsehood,
Or if my foot has hastened to deceit,
Let me be weighed on honest scales,
That God may know my integrity.
Job 31:5-6

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

Love and hugs,
