Words of wisdom

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! It is good to have a free day. That is, free of doctors' appointments and other things and just to have the time to do what I want and what is necessary.

The weather is beautiful and warming up so in the afternoon, that I have been turning on the A/C in the late afternoon. Well, I read in the paper yesterday that worms are attacking the oak trees. Oh, no! I remember several years ago in the park, the rails of the boardwalk were absolutely covered with blankets of worms. It was disgusting! You could not walk for worms dropping on your head. I am hoping it doesn't get so bad this year.

After my doc's app't yesterday to get the all clear on my arteries, I felt so good, that I changed clothes and walked out to the tower. I stopped at the first shelter and no baby gators were to be seen, so I walked on the tower. I stopped at the second covered shelter and a lone squirrel, who had obviously been fed in spite of the sign that says no feeding the squirrels, was coming to me hoping to get a peanut. I did not oblige, but told him that was a "no-no". It was nice and windy at the tower, so I enjoyed cooling off.

On my way back I stopped at the first shelter once again and looked and looked and finally spotted four babies about 12 feet in front of the shelter. I know Mama must have been around somewhere, maybe under the shelter, but at least I saw them. God is good!

From the NKJV

Isaiah 61:1-3

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
because the Lord has anointed Me
to preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those
who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable
year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God.
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion.
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the
spirit of heaviness that they may be called
trees of righteousness.
The planting of the Lord that He may be glorified.

Prayer of Habakkuk 3:17-19 NLT
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there
are no grapes on the vine; even though the olive crop
fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though
the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my
salvation. The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He will make me as
surefooted as a deer and bring me safely over the mountains.

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

Love and hugs,
