A Benediction

Good mid-morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I made the mistake of going for lab work without first making an appointment, so had to wait about 45 minutes. What a crowd! I did not think they would be so busy this time of year, but I was wrong. Of course, I was fasting, so by the time I came home, I was really hungry and thirsty ! Well, anyway, that's done.

Yesterday, I visited my dermatologist and, as a result, I have a nice blotch on my nose, and one on my leg, which he thinks are basal cell carcinomas, so he sent them off to be biopsied. Brian and I are leaving Friday early to go to Alabama to visit my uncle and meet Daryl and Matthew on Sunday. They are only two hours away. But, I will have a not so pretty nose the whole time. Oh, well, it's not how I look, it's the joy of being with family that counts!

I went to the park yesterday and got out to walk just a little, since the sun was so hot, and was just in time to see a large gator swim under the bridge and on down the canal , leisurely leaving a wake behind. Meantime, an egret was right beside the bridge looking at me as I looked at it. They are really used to people. God is good!

Here is a short benediction from Jude, NLT

And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring you into his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy. All glory to him, who alone is God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and authority belong to him, in the beginning, now, and forevermore.

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

Love and hugs,
