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! When I stepped outside this morning, all the stars were shining brightly. It was a beautiful sight! Soon the moon will be full again and then it will be even brighter! God is good!

We had a work crew from church Saturday, and they trimmed, and cleaned out the rain gutters and carried off a truckload of trash! What great workers! We were blessed! The youngest was about four and really cute! :o) Worker, I mean.

The park is really overgrown where no mowing has been done for months, and I noticed four new posts at the beginning of the path around the borrow pits. A large gator bit a woman's leg there a week ago, while she was walking her dog along the path. She slipped and fell and the gator came after her. Other than teeth scars she will have, and bad memories, she will be all right. Mike was wishing it had happened after he retires, which will be Tuesday. I will miss him greatly. He is the last of the old crew that was there for thirty years. Times change. Sigh.


How can I best use time?

Psalm 90:12 Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace. What do people really get for all their hard work? I have thought about this in connection with the various kinds of work God has given people to do. God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end.
Valuing time begins with seeing it from God's perspective. When we do this, we learn that there is always time for accomplishing God's plans for our lives.

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

Love and hugs,
