Joggin' thru Joshua

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! This is another day without much needed rain, but we still depend on God's timing to bring what we need. Because I did not water them, my amaryllis have all died, and I don't know if the bulbs have dried up or not. Shame on me for not watering!

We heard a powerful sermon yesterday from the president of the Alaska Christian College, and afterwards, I drove to the Park before going home. As I was marveling at the light and shadows, and the crowd of people milling around, all out to enjoy nature's beauty, Louis Armstrong's voice came over the radio singing, "What a wonderful world." Perfect!!

It was a nice, quiet weekend with a lot of reading accomplished and some tasks around the house..more closet cleaning and not much else, but God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:  (the theme of our sermon yesterday).

Joshua 1:3-9
I promise you what I promised Moses: Everywhere you go, you will be on land I have given you--from the Negev desert in the south to the Lebanon mountains in the north, from the Euphrates River on the east  to the Mediterranean Sea on the west and all the land of the Hittites. No one will be able to stand their ground against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you.

Be strong and courageous, for you will lead my people to possess all the land I swore to give their ancestors. Be strong and very courageous Obey all the laws Moses gave you. Do not turn away from them and you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed. I command you--be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

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

Love and hugs,
