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! I haven't seen the sun yet this morning, but lots of clouds and I know the weather map showed lots of showers in the gulf heading this way, so maybe we will get some rain, praise God! If the oak leaves are wet, then the pollen won't bother me so much.
I got lots of walking in yesterday, when I shopped at Walmart Neighborhood store. I am not too familiar with their layout yet, so I had to double back a couple times to find what was on my list, but, actually, it is more convenient than the super Walmart a mile or two further north, and not nearly so busy. They had left over Valentine's candy at half price, but I only bought one small box of chocolates! Such discipline I displayed!
I stopped in at Sawgrass later, and saw the big gator stretched out on the bank, sunning and across the street on the weir, more turtles. The large gopher tortoise was just coming out of his tunnel home and a large group of people were walking down the sidewalk. Students, I think. It was a beautiful, warm, sunshiny day. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Sing a new song to the Lord,
for he has done wonderful deeds.
He has won a might victory
by his power and holiness.
The Lord has announced his victory and has revealed his righteousness to every nation! He has remembered his promise to love and be faithful to Israel. The whole earth has seen the salvation of our God.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth, break out in praise and sing for joy! Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and melodious song, with trumpets and the sound of the ram's horn. Make a joyful symphony before the Lord the King!
Let the sea and everything in it shout His praise!
Let the earth and all living things join in.
Let the rivers clap their hands in glee!
Let the hills sing out their songs of joy before the Lord.
For the Lord is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with fairness.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
