God's Promises

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the cool day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Once again, blankets on the bed felt good because it is still chilly outside. We haven't had the heat on, yet, and it is supposed to warm up again toward the end of the week and be in the high eighties, so winter is not here permanently! God is good!

I thought the squirrels did all their family planning in the spring, but they have been building nests in our oak trees, as evidenced by all the twigs on the ground today. I stepped outside earlier and saw a very large mess of them under the tree. The squirrels were scampering around and around the large oak yesterday, playing, I thought, Maybe not. :o) Anyway, more work to clean up the yard.

Yesterday, as I drove into the Park, I saw a gator sunning on the bank of the lake where the gator attacked the woman walking her dog. First time I have seen one there in months! And on the other side on the bank of the weir, three turtles were catching some rays. The mowers were at work, tidying up the places where most of the people hang out, especially on the berms by the canal, where children like to roll down the hill. It was a lovely day and people were enjoying it!

From the little book God's Promises:

We Rely on God to guide our lives:

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
the Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 4o:28-31

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you.
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

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

Love and hugs,
