Maundy Thursday

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! I snoozed a little later this morning, because I stayed up late reading a new book I bought yesterday..The Shack. It is a very interesting book that I highly recommend to all.

Anyway, I just found out this morning, thanks to my Moody devotional, that "Maundy" means "Commandment". How many of you knew that, and am I the only ignorant one? Just thought I'd throw that in.

Well, the black, shiny gator was sunning himself again yesterday afternoon at the park. He always attracts a lot of attention from people coming and going. If you don't see one on your walk, you can see him on the way out. :o) God is good!

From the Hymns For the Family of God:


The world needs men
who cannot be bought;
whose word is their bond;
who put character above wealth;
who are larger than their vocations;
who do not hesitate to take chances;
who will not lose their identity in a crowd;
who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
who will make no compromise with wrong;
whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
who will not say they do it "because everybody else does it,";
who are true to their friends through good report and evil report,
in adversity as well as in prosperity;
who do not believe that shrewdness and cunning are the best
qualities for winning success;
who are not ashamed to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
who can say "no" with emphasis, although the rest of the world say "yes";

God, make me this kind of man.

Leonard Wagner

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

Love and hugs,
