Encouraging words from Psalms

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! Looks like we will have a cloudy day today, which is not good for the air show this weekend at MacDill, but if it brings rain, that is what we need.

I think we have some friendlier squirrels in our trees, now. A little pregnant fuzzy responded to me when I clicked my tongue, so I got a couple peanuts and she went for them. After she was up in the tree, I took some crunchy peanut butter and swabbed it on the knot they like to sit on. The bluejays didn't see it, so she sat up there and ate it all herself! I have a bowl of water out on the wall of our porch and lots of critters come to drink, including a big feral cat! I don't really want him hanging around, but they have to drink, too.

I saw the same gator hanging out on the bank by the weir yesterday at the Park, and a great blue heron standing by the bank hunting for his lunch. Because of the sore foot and cranky knee, I have not been able to walk in the park this week..maybe tomorrow!

Peace In Troubled Times

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding:
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth,
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him.
And delivers them,
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Psalm 34:1-8

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs and have a great weekend!
