God's Promises

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 guess we had fog this morning, but it has burned off around here now, and the sun is shining and it looks like a beautiful day is in store for us.

I may go for a walk later on, if God does not have other plans. Yesterday, I drove into the park, which was very crowded and saw Dave C., my yard man, in his park uniform. so I pulled into a parking space and we stood and chatted for a while, and watched all the people walking on and off the boardwalk. One man wearing shorts, and that's it, and others with jackets on. It was very warm in the sun, but slightly chilly in the shade. Dave was wearing a jacket, but I wasn't and I noticed the coolness.

So, my intention was to check out the park and then go to the car wash, and then come and walk, but since it was getting late, I got the car washed and did not come back to walk. But I enjoyed  watching the class  look at a gopher tortoise while the teacher explained the creature's habits.

 I am trying to overcome the bad habit of procrastination that I have, and I got one project done, and am working on another. This means trying to get rid of clutter, which will probably take another year to do. What to do with hundreds of photographs going back to when the boys were little?? The mere thought of it, makes me want to sit down and read a book. Sigh. But God is so good , I know he will prod me to keep at it! However, since today is my birthday, I may take the day off. :o)

From the little God's Promises Book:

God gives to Men (and Women)
Courage to be people of Integrity

Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree planted  by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither:
And whatever he does shall prosper.'
The ungodly are not  so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
   Psalm 1:1-6

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

Love and hugs,
