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 was watching the weather channel this morning, and looking at all the blizzards and snow, power outages, schools closed and businesses closed and was so thankful that I live in Florida! Last night our low was 71. This morning the wind is blowing and the sky is overcast with a threat of rain, but it's still 71, so I am rejoicing in the day!
My Honeybell oranges came yesterday, and I was able to squeeze about four ounces of juice out of just two oranges. Yum! Fresh juice with pulp in it! Sunshine in a glass!
I walked around the house outside looking at the beauty berry bush and the crepe myrtle, neither of which has leaves, and wondering if the freeze we had killed them, or if they just haven't shown signs of spring yet. I hope they are not dead, but just still sleeping. Another week or so and I should be able to tell.
I saw the really big gator yesterday, all shiny and black, resting on the bank of the lake and since a volunteer was cleaning out the canal at the weir, all the turtles were plastered on the grassy bank, including a big one! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I look up to the mountains--
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made the heavens and the earth!
He will not let you stumble and fall,
the one who watches over you will not sleep.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never tires and never sleeps.
The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your
The sun will not hurt you by day,
nor the moon at night.
The Lord keeps you from all evil
and preserves your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you
come and go,
both now and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
