Luke teaching about money and possessions

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 weatherman said this morning that we are not having our usual afternoon thunderstorms to cool us down, but that's ok with me, because this morning, the mushroom garden in my welcome mat is flourishing!  These "flowers" have long, skinny stems and are just like tiny daisies at the top. I hate to disturb them, so I guess I'll just have to move the mat.

And, the baby anole I wrote about yesterday did not get in the house, but another baby lizard was on the front window this morning. I need my grandson here to catch him and escort him out. I like nature outside, not inside! :o)

Well, I took a day off from driving yesterday...just stayed home and cleaned out some more in particular. I haven't even started on my drawers yet, or linen closet, so there is lots to do and toss!

This morning I saw something so funny looking. A very large black duck was sitting on top of the dumpster down at the curb and preening his feathers. He looked like king of the street. Fortunately for him, he left before the truck came along, or he would had a big lift he didn't plan on!  God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 12:22-31

Then turning to his disciples, Jesus said, "So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life--whether you have enogh food to eat or clothes to wear. For life consists of far more than food and clothing. Look at the ravens. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds! Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not! And if worry can't do little things like that, what's the use of worrying over bigger things?

Look at the lities, and how they grow. They don't work to make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow. won't he more surely  care for you? You have so little faith! And don't worry about food--what to eat and drink. Don't worry whether God will provide it for you. These things dominate the thoughts of most people, but your Father already knows your needs. He will give you all you need from day to day if you make the Kingdom of God your primary concern."

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

Love and hugs,
