Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the foggy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

I read a poem a long time ago about fog..."The fog creeps in on little cat feet and sits..." don't remember the rest of it, Maybe it was by c.c. cummings, but anyway, that's what I was reminded of when I stepped outside this morning.

David came yesterday to mow and clean up the yard. After he was finished the property looked wonderful with all the acorns gone. However, as I stood and talked with him, we were pelted with acorns again, so it doesn't last long. The squirrels should have enough stocked for two years! David also took care of several wasp nests that were under the porch chairs. I keep spraying and they keep coming back. All God's creatures, but I sometimes wonder what good they do! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

How does the promise of blessing affect us when we are weary or discouraged?

1 Corinthians 15:57,58 How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord! So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and steady, always enthusiastic about the Lord's work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

Galatians 6:9 Don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.

When we are tempted to give up, new resolve comes from remembering that God promises to bring a harvest in his perfect time.

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

Love and hugs,
