The Magnificat: Mary's Song of Praise

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! Yesterday's rain has passed through and today we have sunshine and a much cooler breeze. I did not leave the house at all because of wet weather and there was really no reason to get out in it. However, I have a dental appointment this morning, so I will have to go clear across town right near the Mall.  I don't look forward to that!

So when I went out in the garage and looked out, I saw the tiny wrens that come down from the north each winter. They were flitting about on the ground and in and out of the hibiscus next door. They are smaller than canaries and brown, and they have a tiny chirp, when they are talking with each other. Very cute. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 1:47-55

Oh, how I praise the Lord. How I rejoice in God my Savior! For he took notice of his lowly servant girl, and now generation after generation will call me blessed. For he, the Mighty One, is holy, and he has done great things for me. His mercy goes on from generation to generation, to all who fear him. His mighty arm does tremendous things! How he scatters the proud and haughty ones! He has taken princes from their thrones and exalted the lowly. He has satisfied the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands. And how he has helped his servant Israel! He has not forgotten his promise to be merciful. For he promised our ancestors - Abraham and his children - to be merciful to them forever.

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

Love and hugs, Amaryllis
