Paul and Apollos

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! We are having cooler temps for the next few days, but still in the eighties in the daytime, so no heavy blankets again!

We had an inspiring sermon yesterday as we celebrated the Resurrection, and I was surprised by a visit from Brian. He had already attended service at his church, but I didn't expect him at mine. He had planned to take me to dinner at the Hangar, so we got there a little earlier and were seated immediately. We had a good dinner and watched the planes take off and land on a perfect day. After touring downtown, which was teeming with people, walking or sitting outdoors at cafes, we headed out to Bay Pines, noticing all the pretty flowers on the graves. There were lots of people visiting, but we squeezed into a parking place under a shady tree, and walked out to visit Louis.

On the way back, we drove by Memorial Park, and stopped in to see my mother and my step-father's grave. Except for being dry, the grounds are well cared for, which is always a comfort.We also visited Sawgrass Park and saw lots of people enjoying picnics and exercise. All in all, it was a very good day! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 3:5=9
Who is Apollos and who is Paul, that we should be the cause of such quarrels?
Why, we're only servants. Through us God caused you to believe. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. My job was to plant the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God, not we, who made it grow. The ones who do the planting or watering aren't important  because he is the one who makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work as a team with the same purpose. Yet  they will be rewarded individually, according to their own hard work. We work together as partners who belong to God. You are God's field, God's building , not ours.

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

Love and hugs,
