Wise words from Hebrews

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 beautiful dark sky this morning when I first stepped outside. The days are getting shorter now, because it is dark a little after six, but Venus was bright in the east and myriads of stars were twinkling all over, which meant a clear sky. Today is supposed to be very hot and clear.

I really like to see the puffy white clouds during the day. I remember as a kid, lying on the grass and looking at the different shapes and faces I could see in them. That is where I also got too much sun, and am now paying for it. Oh, well, youth. You do foolish things without thinking of the consequences!

We spent a quiet day at home waiting for the visiting nurse to do an assessment. When he came, he thought he was supposed to check up on me! Kinda got his wires crossed.

I talked to a little squirrel when I was outside and it was very interested, so I threw it a peanut, which he sat and munched on right away. They have lots of nooks in the trees where they find little places to sit. They chase each other around and around the large oak trees and seem never to tire. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Hebrews 13:16 Don't forget to do good and to share what you have with those in need, for such sacrifices are very pleasing to God.

...And now, may the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, all that is pleasing to him. Jesus is the great Shepherd of the sheep by an everlasting covenant, signed with his blood. To him be glory, forever and forever.

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

Love and hugs,
