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! Another overcast day with fog, I guess, although not visible around here. This was how yesterday started, but it got up in the lower eighties by afternoon. So warm, in fact, that I turned on the A/C for awhile. Changeable weather!

I had to take the van to Ray at Cartek in the morning, because the button on my ac blower decided not to stay on, and even though this is Nov., the car still gets warm. So after taking time, to look up the problem, he showed me how to make it stay on and didn't have to work on the car. I am blessed to have a good mechanic who knows what he is doing and is reliable!

I drove to the car wash, but discovered I didn't have the right change, so came on back home to the park and observed the peace and quiet. I had seen a woodstork by Lynch Lake preening his feathers, but saw just the ibis and squirrels at the park. I think I have only seen one woodstork there, for some reason. The trees are shedding and seem to be getting ready for winter to come, when all will be a grayish color, because the greenery will mostly be gone. A time for sleeping ....God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

When I am confused, where do I turn for clarity, wisdom, understanding, and direction?

James 1:5-8 If you need wisdom--if you want to know what God wants you to do--ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. People like that should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. They can't make up their minds. They waver back and forth in everything they do.

Psalm 119:125 Give discernment to me, your servant, then I will understand your decrees.

Discernment is the ability to interpret events and to understand the true nature of people and situations. Discernment is an aspect of wisdom. It enables us to see behind the facades that mask the truth. Discernment shows us the way through the maze of options that face us. Like the sun that burns away the fog, discernment cuts through confusion and distractions. Whereas the devil is the "father of lies", God is the father of the truth, and he gives discernment to those who seek it.

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

Love and hugs,
