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 stars were very bright this morning early and I tried to see the quarter moon, but guess it had already set. It is a little cooler today and the blanket felt good last night.
We have an almost transparent gecko residing in our bathroom right now, and I wish he would leave. A few days ago, i escorted a very tiny baby gecko out the back door into the garage, where they usually live. I don't know if it was related or not to the adult, They can stay in the garage forever, but not in the house. The eyes are the only resemblance to the Geico gecko.
I watched a great blue heron preening and grooming his feathers at the weir at the park. For once he was not looking for something to eat, although he may have been getting ready for dinner! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How am I supposed to plan my life?
Proverbs 2:1-11 My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of justice and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will know how to find the right course of action every time. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise planning will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.
A plan is only as good as the information upon which it's based. Our human intellect is limited and inadequate. Apart from the Lord, our plans are liable to fail. the Lord promises wisdom to those who rely on his word and depend on his Spirit.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
