No one else will listen

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! When I stepped outside early this morning, Venus was still glowing brightly in the eastern sky and, looking much farther away, the other stars were dimly visible. God is good!

I noticed one blossom on my potted hibiscus this morning. It was a gift and has a long stalk with the red flower at the end. My one last amaryllis is fading fast, but was pretty while it lasted. I noticed the neighbor across the street has a bunch of red ones in front of her house.

I still take pleasure in looking at the beautiful jacarandas in bloom everywhere. They are lovely lavender blossoms, even though they are kind of messy on the ground.The magnolias are also blooming and the new ones in the park seem to be thriving. I was there in the late afternoon, after going to a support group earlier. It didn't look like Mike was there, so I did not take any lemon cake over...his favorite. Maybe today..

From God's Promises for Men (but good for everyone)

God listens to a Person's Prayer When...
No One Else Will Listen

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving
Colossians 4:2

Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer
Romans 12:12

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
Matthew 18:19

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayers and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.
Ephesians 6:13-18

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

Love and hugs,
