God's love is with a person when...

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 ! Well, I am kinda late this morning, because I slept a little longer than usual. I haven't been able to sleep very well this week, so a couple hours more was good!

Already, the dry cleaning man was here, so some people get started early! I used to walk in the park before the sun was up, back when Louis was working . It was always dark enough for a flashlight. One morning I saw a very peculiar critter and stopped and watched as it scampered off. It was an albino raccoon. I could tell it was a raccoon by the weird walk, but otherwise it was kind of spooky. I also walked behind some "Disney like" raccoons on the boardwalk, who were twins and looked very funny running ahead of me. Then there was the morning in the dark, when I walked straight into a golden orb web stretched across the boardwalk, I invented a new dance trying to get the spider off me! Ah, memories! God is good!

From the little book God's Promises

God's Love is with a person when
he brings his problems to God

If you would prepare your heart,
And stretch out your hands toward Him;
If iniquity were in your hand, and yu put it far away,
And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
Then surely you could lift up your face without spot;
Yes, you could be steadfast, and not fear;
Because you would forget your misery,
And remember it as waters that have passed away,
And your life would be brighter than noonday.
Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
And you would be secure, because there is hope;
Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
Job 11:13-18

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
And his ears are open to their prayers;
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.
and who is he who evil harm you if you
become followers of what is good?
But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed.
And do not be afraid of their threats, nor
be troubled. But sanctify the Lord God in your
hearts, and always be ready to give a defense
to anyone who asks you a reason for the hope that
is in you, with meekness and fear.
1 Peter 3:12-15

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

Love and hugs,
