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 day of bright sunshine and no clouds to speak of. Even the wind is not blowing this morning, so it is a beautiful day right here. I know in other parts of Florida, the flood waters have not receded and many people are out of their homes and I pray for them. The weather has done strange things lately, with the wildfires in Co. and the extreme heat all over and then our TS Debby, and this is only June, soon to be July!
I was wondering where the squirrels, birds and butterflies go during the wind and rain like we had. I did not see one squirrel in the yard and, of course, no birds, but now they are all back...guess I will never know.
When I went to the park yesterday, I saw the large, brown tortoise moseying close to the parking lot, but a lady let her three large dogs get too close, and he did not like that! The water has not gone down much, and I saw a white egret looking for lunch along side the canal. The fish much be on the move! God is still good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Living to please others
Romans 15:5-9, 13
May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other--each with the attitude of Christ Jesus toward the other. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So accept each other just as Christ has accepted you; then God will be glorified. Remember that Christ came as a servant to the Jews to show that God is true to the promises he made to their ancestors. And he came so the Gentiles might also give glory to God for his mercies to them.
So I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit, (my favorite verse)
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
