The Right Kind of fellowship

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's cooler this morning than we are used to, but brilliant sun and no clouds make for a gorgeous day!

David C. was right when he finished blowing off the acorns yesterday. He said all was clean for about five minutes and by afternoon, it would not look like he was there. The acorns are still falling and the trees must still be full. Oh, well, until the car crushes them it doesn't look too bad.

Yesterday I drove by Lynch Lake which had just been mowed and so many water fowl were enjoying the easy access to bugs and grubs! A flock of ibis at one end, the woodstorks with the ducks near the only shade, and best of all, the roseate spoonbill was there!

Over at the park, only a couple turtles were sunning and the plump gator was half out of the lake and sunning. A great, blue heron was all twisted up preening his feathers and all was well. God is good!

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

So reach out and weldome one another to God's glory. Jesus did it; now you do it!
Romans 15:7 MSG

If you genuinely want to build a closer relationship with God, you need to build closer relationships with godly people. That's why fellowship with like-minded believers should be an integral part of your life. Your association with fellow Christians should be uplifting, enlightening, encouraging and (above all) consistent.

Are your friends the kind of people who encourage you to seek God's will and to obey God's Word? If so, you've chosen your friends wisely. And that's a good thing because when you choose friends who honor God, you'll find it easier to honor Him,too.

Great Thoughts :
One of the ways God refills us after failure is through the blessing of Christian fellowship. Just experiencing the joy of simple activities shared with other children of God can have a healing effect on us.

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

Love and hugs,
