Roamin' thru Romans

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! I am a little late this morning, but not because I slept later. Phone calls and other things took time away from my devotional time

I hope some of you were outside to see the moon and Jupiter, I think, last night. What a beautiful sight! They were very close and the sky was clear, so the beauty was there for all to see. Looks like some rain is coming our way tonight or tomorrow. Thank you, Jesus! The wind is blowing and the humidity is definitely higher, so my bones are aching. Perhaps this wind will blow the last of the acorns off the trees. I can only hope.

Yesterday, I heard Christmas music while shopping in Sweetbay... not only popular songs, but real carols. Even though it is not Thanksgiving yet, still it was nice to hear the Christmas carols. Of course, not to preach, but every day should be thanksgiving!

Well, the woodstorks were at Lynch Lake again, even sitting with the ducks that are always there. I saw one woodstork lying on the ground, resting, First time I had seen one on the ground, but I guess they nest on the ground, just not out in the open!.

There were the usual turtles on the bank of the weir yesterday, but the gator was not in sight. A great blue heron was all twisted up, preening the feathers. It was a funny sight! God is good!

Romans 4:4 NLT:

When people work, their wages are not a gift. Workers earn what they receive. But people are declared righteous because of their faith, not because of their work.

King David spoke of this, describing the happiness of an undeserving sinner who is declared to be righteous.

"Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sins are put out of sight.
"Yes, what joy for those whose sin is no longer counted against them by the Lord."

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

Love and hugs,
