Worry Wednesday

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! Blue skies, lots of clouds and a gentle wind, makes for a beautiful morning! The full moon is predicted to be the largest of the year, so I am hoping that I will be able to see it if the clouds do not interfere tonight.

The yard got all cleaned up yesterday afternoon when David got through fishing. It was hot, but a wind was blowing, so it wasn't too bad. He did a couple other things for me that needed doing, like cleaning the A/C filter, etc. The house needs washing, but I am thinking if I do that, I might as well get it power washed and painted. One thing after another, but God always  provides the people I need!

I visited Chick-fil-a and bought a salad for my lunch, which was very good and big, so it lasted two meals! I also visited the park and was in time to see the teacher leading a large class on a tour of all the interesting sights the park has to offer. The kids were all in a row and seemed to be very well mannered. Sawgrass is a wonderful place to learn a lot about nature. I hope the field trips are not taken away by budget cuts. But God is good!

From Quiet Moments with God:

"Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
Matthew 6:34 NKJV

Many people lose sleep by worrying. They lie awake in bed, wondering if they made a right decision the day before--if they did the wrong thing--and what they should do tomorrow. 

Here's a creative way one woman handled worry. With so many things to worry about, she decided to set aside one day each week to worry. As worrying situations occurred, she wrote them down and put them in her worry box. Then, on worry Wednesday, she read through each worry. To her amazement, most of the things she had been disturbed about had already been taken care of in some way.Thus, she learned there was seldom a justifiable reason to worry. As the psalmist  wrote in Psalm 127:2 NKJV  It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep."......As a child of God, you can rest in the knowledge that you are surrounded by a loving Father who cares for you. Jesus said, "Look at the birds of the air,  for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" (Matthew 6:26 NKJV)  The same Creator who placed each star in the sky is watching over

                                            The beginning of anxiety
                                            is the end of faith, and
                                            the beginning of true
                                            faith us the end of anxiety.
                                                             George Miller

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

Love and hugs,
