My Morning Prayer

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! A little cooler this morning, but sunshiny and beautiful! The azaleas are in full bloom in the park and my hidden one in the back of the house is gorgeous because of its dark pink colors. Only one in front has bloomed so far, but they have really grown this spring. I noticed an oak in the neighborhood yesterday that had the long seeds all over it, so that means lots of pollen in the air. I have started on Nasalchrom  for my allergy to the pollen, which caused me to sneeze about a dozen times. But I managed to sweep off the porch without too much discomfort, because the leaves were damp, which really helped to keep the dust down.

I was pleased with myself because I managed to get some chores done around the house, that I usually have no trouble putting off, with a free conscience.  I felt even better knowing I had them done! I went shopping after that for a few needed items and stopped in at the park, and saw a couple walking where it is forbidden because of a gator attack a few years ago. they were looking at the big gator  sunning. The license said they were from out of town, so guess they are used to ignoring signs. Not saying which state.

Further down I spotted the very large, old brown gopher tortoise lumbering along, and lots of people enjoying the great weather! God is good!

My Morning Prayer

"Oh, God, for another day, for another morning, for another hour for another minute, for another chance to live and serve Thee, I am truly grateful."

Do Thou this day free me from all fear of the future from all bitterness toward anyone.
From all cowardice in face of danger from all laziness in face of work, from all failure before opportunity from all weakness when Thy power is at hand.

But fill me with Love that knows no barrier
with Sympathy that reaches all
with Courage that cannot be shaken
with Faith strong enough for darkness,
With Strength sufficient for my tasks
with Loyalty to Thy Kingdom Goal,
with Power to lift me to Thee.

Be Thou with me for another day and use
me as Thou will for Christ's sake, I pray.

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

Love and hugs, Amaryllis
