We Reap What We Sow

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! Lots of sunshine and clouds this morning, and the heat and humidity moving in already, but this is the last day of May and soon hotter June will be upon us, then we can really complain about the heat! We have had enough rain since last week, that my lawn actually needs mowing again, so that will get done tomorrow.

I had a dental appointment yesterday and discovered a new entrance to his office, with a new door. I also discovered as the hygienist was working that I have a cavity...bummer. That means I have to go back next week and get it filled. I haven't had a cavity in years, but I have a space between molars that always captures food, no matter how I floss and poke with a brush and that's where the cavity is. Well, I'll do what I have to do.

After I left that office, I came home to let the cleaning ladies in, chatted with them while they worked, and then, after lunch, went to the library. I saw the homeless man in the parking lot...the one that usually hangs out at the park, and he once again was sorting all the junk packed in his car. Guess he knows all the places with rest room facilities. I drove on to the park where very few people were and did not see the gopher tortoise. His tunnel was so wet, I wonder if they ever get too much water in their homes, so they can't live in them any more. But, I heard a chorus of birds, as I do around here and also passed a tree with gorgeous yellow flowers on it. I think it might be a golden rain tree, but not sure. Anyway, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 6:4-10
Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done your work well, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our  own conduct.

Those who are taught the word of God should help their teachers by paying them. 

Don't be misled. Remember that you can't ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow! Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful desires  will harvest the consequences of decay and death. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest  everlasting life from the Spirit.  So don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone especially to our Christian brothers and sisters.

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

Love and hugs,
