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 wet morning! We had thundershowers last night that lasted for a long time and it looks like it might have rained all night. Well, we needed the rain and God gave it. God is good!

The van was in the shop most of the day, so we didn't get out until afternoon and then just to visit the Park between rain showers. The water is up and all the aquatic creatures are happy. The grass is green and growing, keeping the mowers busy. I saw a beautiful egret standing by the water and the ever present anhingas drying wings. It was a good respite! And later, Kris Allen won the American idol contest! Yay! He's a young man who has done mission work and sings in his church.

From the Promise Bible NLT:

How am I supposed to plan my life?

Proverbs 2:1-11 My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions,. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly.l He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity. He guards the pats of justice and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will know how to find the right course of action every time. For wisdom wil enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise planning will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.

A plan is only as good as the information upon which it's based. Our human intellect is limited and inadequate. Apark from the Lord, our plans are liable to fail. The Lord promises wisdom to those who rely on his word and depend on the Spirit.

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

Love and hugs,
