Good morning, a little late, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners ! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! David, came and mowed the yard and made everything neat, so I was late getting to my usual activities. He put six boxes out for me for the Salvation Army to pick up, and then I opened a drawer and filled another box and carried that out. The truck is due between 8-4 so, hopefully, earlier than later.
I watched the NFL draft last night until Tim Tebow got picked in the first round! Yay! I know he will do his best for the Denver Broncos!
Was surprised that Claussen and Colt McCoy did not get picked yet.
Yesterday, by the time I was ready to walk, it was too hot, so I enjoyed looking at the canal and watching an egret silhouetted against some water bulrushes . IF I had taken a camera with me, I could have gotten a perfect shot that looked like the real Florida. I watched a large gopher tortoise whizzing through the tall grass. :o) and saw a peacock on the way in to the park. The long tail feathers were just gorgeous glowing in the sun. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Picking up from yesterday:
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask? Don't copy the behavior and customs of the world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
As God's messenger, I give each of you this warning: Be honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your value by how much faith God has given you. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ's body. We are all parts of his one body, and each of us has different work to do. And since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.
Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do your part to live in peace with everyone, a much as possible.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
Amaryllis ( have a wonderful weekend, everybody)
