Questions we may be asked at the last homegoing

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! Another ditto day in the string of same weather days! I enjoyed watching a squirrel climb up the hedge outside my window and leap over to the roof, then to an oak in the backyard, and who knows where from there! Later I saw one stop and look at me when I opened the garage door, so I threw some peanuts out on the driveway, and, of course, a bluejay, swooped down and picked one up and off he went! They are really thieves!

I was happy to find gas was 3.25 a gal. at Walmart yesterday! That was with my card, but it takes 5 cents off, so it was still lower than elsewhere.After left there, I drove in search of lunch...went to Wendy's and discovered cars lined up on 4th st. waiting in line for the drive thru, so I left there and wound up at Subway in Pinellas Park at their drive-thru.

I visited Sawgrass and saw a few more people there, but none out in the sun. An anhinga was drying off at the berm, which is still piled high with trash from the storm and fast moving water a few days ago. The teacher was tending to some things in her car and she will probably be packing up soon, since the end of school is near.

Well, my yard man is coming today, even though his back is still bothering him. The grass has really grown since the rain, and really needs to be trimmed. Seems like our bodies do wear out, sooner than we would like, but God is still good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Matthew 25:31-40

The Final Judgment

But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left. Then the King will say to those on the right , "Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger and you invited me into your home. I was sick and you cared for me. I was in prison and you visited me."

Then these righteous ones will reply, "Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?

When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you? And the King will tell them, "I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!"

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

Love and hugs,
