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, I could not see the stars, because the clouds were drifting over them, but now. the sky has cleared and it is beautiful and clear! God is good!
While I was running errands yesterday, I stopped at the park and admired all the greenery and the squirrels running everywhere. I also saw the great blue heron keeping vigil at the edge of the bank, as he searched for food. There is plenty for everyone there, even the armadillos!
This morning I saw the feral black cat that lives around here, taking a drink out of the container that I keep on the porch wall for the birds and squirrels. The cat has done that before, and I don't have the heart to run her off. If I feed her, the law considers her mine and I have to take her for shots and to the vet and I can't do that and take care of hubby. Sigh. But she looks healthy. I have a friend who spent about seven hundred on a stray cat that she took care of. She has a huge heart! God loves all the creatures of the world!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Ephesians 6 excerpts
Work hard, but not just to please your masters when they are watching. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free.
A final word: be strong with the Lord's mighty power. Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
Use every piece of God's armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle you will be standing firm.
May God give you peace, dear brothers and sister, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. May God's grace be upon all who love oiur Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
