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! While the sun is shining brightly now, last night we had a nice steady rain, but not for long. I noticed a pink sunrise when I stepped outside earlier. Just gorgeous!
Looks like the messy squirrels are building a nest in our oaks. Fresh green twigs are all over where they have trimmed them. I will have the job of picking them up, which I did yesterday. Also, I was hoping that the Park would be mowed and neat again, but not so. The grass and weeds are long as usual, so I don't know what the mowers did yesterday. But... the squirrels, egrets and herons do not mind how high the grass is. They carry on with their busyness and take care of feeding themselves. God is good!
We also saw a peacock lying flat on the grass by the street, looking very comfy. His long tail feathers were gleaming in the sun. Guess he was tired! :o)
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How can I face challenging, sometimes intimidating, opportunities?
Philippians 4:13 I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.
Our ability to face challenges is rooted in Christ, not in ourselves. With Christ's help, we can make the most of every opportunity.
How do I know if an opportunity is from the Lord?
Joshua 1:7-9 Be strong and very courageous. Obey all the laws Moses gave you. Do not turn away from them, and you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed. I command you-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
