Good evening, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This was the day that the Lord made, and I rejoiced and was glad in it! It is almost bedtime, but since I have a Stephen Ministry class tomorrow morning, I thought I would send a word for tomorrow, tonight.
We had a good sermon, accompanied by the Concordia visiting choir (forgive me if that is not their name). Students with lovely voices on a long trip from Minnesota. The director said it was 23 degrees when they lift home and they came to 80 degrees. Quite a difference!
On my way home I saw a baby osprey high on a pole built for a nest. He was sticking his head up looking around. A true birds eye view! Lots of birds were singing as I stuck my head out before church and the wind was blowing a little stronger than usua, wafting the sweet scent of orange blossoms to freshen the air. There are supposed to be thundershowers blowing in tonight, which is good, because we need the rain! God is good!
Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes,
and I shall keep it to the end.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your Law;
Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart,
Make me walk in the path of Your commandments,
For I delight in it.
Now by this we know that we know Him. if we keep his commandments. He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
1 John 2:3-6
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
