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 is an overcast day with rain all around, so I guess we will get some today when we didn't yesterday. I did not have too much planned today, so let it rain!

I wasted time this morning watching the Casey Anthony sentencing which did not will be later. "Nuff said about that!

When I opened the door this morning, a lizard, (anole) rushed in, so now he will be roaming over the house until I can urge him toward the door to escort him out. They are so quick and hide very easily. Wish Matthew were here to catch it!

I saw an osprey perched on a high pole yesterday, and thought what a great view he must have as he surveys the landscape. I have not seen them hover in a while, so I will have to plan to get over to the park early one morning, because that's when they look for food or their catch of the day.

I am still fascinated with the mockers that climb in and out of the tall hedge outside my window. There must be lots of nests around because they fly off with the berries. Well! I just saw a redwing blackbird fly into the hedge! First I have seen one of them in a long time!

I stopped in at the park yesterday and noticed that nearly all the trash in the canal had been cleared out! It looks so much nicer... The man that lives in his Toyota was unloading all his bags onto a picnic table and either preparing to eat, or just sorting his goods. The car looks nice on the outside, but is full on the inside. 

Flocks of ibis were pecking around and an anhinga was airing the wings on the weir, but everything was quiet and peaceful. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Paul's Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom

Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for Christians everywhere, I have never stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the wonderful future he has promised to those he called. I want you to realize what a rich and glorious inheritance he has given to his people. ...

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

Love and hugs, Amaryllis
