Living in the Light

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 don't have any smoke like yesterday, but the sky is hazy and I hope that means a little rain later on. 

Dave, my yard man came yesterday, so since he comes about lunch time, I went to Subway to get a sandwich. I like to go to the one in Pinellas Park that has a drive-thru, so I had to wait through 3 lights at 70th Ave. and 34th St! I know traffic control likes to keep the heavy traffic moving on 34th, but the light only lets three cars through on the green, and the cars behind me were a block long. Really!! So, by the time I came home, the yard was mowed and Dave was blowing off the trimmings.

He was telling me the latest developments in his family. His Mom is in a nursing home, suffering from Alzheimer's and since we have known him such a long time, he watched Louis go through all the stages of Alz. and asks me questions about this horrible disease.Even though we don't share the same beliefs   my faith and his lack of... we have interesting conversations, and I enjoy our talks.

I took a ride to Sawgrass later on and saw the gopher tortoise venturing out onto the newly mowed path next to the parking lot and a tri-colored heron in the canal. I still like to see the white herons outlined against the green backgrounds. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 John 5:10
This is the message he has given us to announce to you: God is light and there is no darkness in him at all. So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living inspiritual darkness. We are not living in the truth. But if we are living in the light of God's  presence, just as Christ is, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son cleanses us from every sin.

1 John 2:9-11
If anyone says," I am living in the light," but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is still living in darkness. Anyone who loves other Christians is living in the light and does not cause anyone to stumble. Anyone who hates a Christian brother or sister is living and walking in darkness. Such a person is lost, having been blinded by the darkness.

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

Love and hugs,
