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 sun has not shone yet, but the cloudy weather is welcome if it brings rain. While some states get too much rain, we need it right now.
I did something I have not done in a long time. I went walking before breakfast and while it was cooler. Hardly anyone was at the Park, so I took my stick that Terry gave me and started out. I paused at the first covered shelter and watched a large raccoon across the water, walking along until he disappeared into the underbrush. It was time for him to sleep all day. Then I walked on to the tower and the wind was blowing, making waves, and there on the side was a big gator, letting the water wash up almost to his eyes. I spoke to him and wished him a good day, then started back...Met only three people out that early. a good time to go! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
They are a warning to those who hear them.
There is a great reward for those
who obey them.
How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
Keep me from deliberate sins!
Don't let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my Rock and my redeemer.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my Prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
