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! The wind is blowing, but we don't have the storms that are going through Tenn. and up through the east coast, so I am happy about that. Just sunshine and blue skies here.
I had a long afternoon yesterday spent at the doctor's office for a routine check up. But, God is so good to always send someone my way to help pass the time. A couple from the past who we were good friends with, were there, and the man talked with me for half and hour catching up on past events in our lives. That's about the third time old friends and I have caught up in the waiting room, which has turned out to be God's waiting room.
When I finally was able to get to the park, I found few people there, but someone had a fire going in the bar-b-que and it smelled so good! It looked like a family was living in their van, because the back end was open and it was stacked with baskets of clothing and all kinds of things. No telling what their story was, but at least, they had something to eat.
I saw two little heads sticking up out of the osprey nest at Sawgrass Elem. waiting for mom or dad to bring home some food, so they are still nesting atop light poles and the tall platforms that are erected for them. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord;
let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness;
Let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me,
freeing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
I cried out to the Lord in my suffering and he heard me.
He set me free from all my fears.
For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him.
And he rescues them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!
Let the Lord's people show him reverence,
for those who honor him will have all they need.
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry,
but those who trust in the Lord will
never lack any good thing...
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
