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! The sun is shining and the birds are singing and when I stepped outside a big, fat frog was sitting on the porch to greet me. I think he was fat from all the bugs the light was attracting.
Well, I am sure lots of children and their parents are up and getting ready for VBS. We had a good preview yesterday in church and it promises to be a good one. Lots of singing, craft making and fun! We had a good, quiet afternoon, and I was happy to be able to get Louis to church, and a big help from one of our friends who pushed him all the way to his seat, and then out to the car when church was over. More help from the Family of God! God is good!
We drove through the Park, but not many people were there. Winter visitors have gone home, but there are always dog walkers and people who don't mind the heat, taking walks, I saw the ever vigilant great white heron, watching the water for his lunch and the anhingas drying their wings. Also, I was pleased to see the very large gopher tortoise, lumbering his way along in his special place behind the fence. He is very old.
From the little God's Promises Book:
God freely gives to Men
Courage to be men of integrity
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful,
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His Law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water;
That brings forth its fruit in its season.
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous,
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
