Prayer and Action

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 brightly on some towering white clouds, but earlier the crescent moon was cupped in the east and the stars are now shining brighter because of the disappearance of the moonlight. It looks like a gorgeous day ahead, even with more heat, but coolness is coming this weekend. God is good!

I watched a great blue heron at the Park, gazing intently at the water for his lunch. And then saw an anhinga drying out on the dead stump at the spot which looks like old Florida. Everything is very green and healthy looking from all the rain we had, but the grass has slowed down it growth, so winter must be coming on. It will be a nice change.


God is not a personage who orders us to prostrate ourselves before him
-a radically false position-
but one who says: "-Stand up, here is my task for you,
take it and get on with it."

God does not require incense from us;
what he does require
is that we should listen and take action-
the true response of love.

God did not stop speaking two thousand years ago
He speaks to you personally today
every time an inward voice asks you to do a kind and generous deed
or to suffer for the sake of someone else.

It is to you personally that God speaks at this moment,
and it is through you that he speaks when he inspires you to do some service.
Be brave enough to listen at first hand to what God says to you.

- John Harvey and Christina Yates

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

Love and hugs,
