Freedom from Rules

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! What a beautiful morning! The breeze is cool, the humidity is low, and the sun is shining and it is a great day to be alive!

As I walked outside, I paused for a minute or two just to look around and enjoy the air. I looked up and saw a plane so high, I could barely see it, but the contrails gave it away, and then I saw squirrels scampering up the oak tree and an egret flying high from the park to who knows where.

After a church service with a good message yesterday, and full of life from young people, because of VBS starting today, I drove through the park. Not many people were out yet, but dads may have been picnicking elsewhere or at the Trop where a large crowd saw the Rays shut out the Marlins. It was a good Sunday, and God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Freedom from rules and New Life in Christ

Colossians 2:6-10
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must
continue to live in obedience to him. Let your roots grown down 
into him and draw nourishment from him, so you will grow in faith,
strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives
overflow in thanksgiving for all he has done.

Don't let anyone lead you astray with empty philosophy and high=
sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the
evil powers of the world, and not from Christ. For in Christ the fullness
of God lives in the human body , and you are complete through your union 
with Christ. He is the Lord over every ruler and authority in the universe.

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

Love and hugs,
