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 stepped outside this morning and found a large limb had fallen on the ground during the night. I picked it up and carried it to the dumpster, but it is too long for me to break up, so I will wait for David to come, next time he mows.

Also, there is an anole that has taken up residence near our mailbox and light. They are strange creatures, almost transparent and they wiggle when they walk, instead of being swift like regular lizards. They used to lay eggs in the mailbox once in a whle, but haven't for ages.

We went to the park yesterday and I was hopeful to find it mowed, because a large mower had been sitting in the parking lot, but wherever it mowed, it wasn't at Sawgrass. Still a pretty park, quiet and peaceful. God is good!

What are the benefits of wisdom?

Psalm 111:10 Reverence for the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. The rewards of wisdom come to all who obey him. Praise his name forever!

Wisdom is not simply knowing facts and figures, it is understanding that an all powerful, all-knowing God has designed a moral universe with consequences for our good and evil choices. Wisdom begins with understanding our accountability to and our full dependence on our Creator. It's not what we know, but who we know.

Proverbs 3:21-26 My child, don't lose sight of good planning ind insight. Hang on to them, for they fill you with life and bring you honor and respect. They keep you safe on your way and keep your feet from stumbling. You can lie down without fear and enjoy pleasant dreams. You need not be afraid of disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

Wisdom produces honor in our lives and protects us from trouble. Wise people know the difference between right and wrong and choose to do what's right. More than that, wisdom is choosing to apply God's truth and principles to our daily relationships and situations.

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

Love and hugs,
