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! Wow! What a thunderstorm we had yesterday afternoon! I don't know just how much rain fell here, but I think it was several inches. I don't mind the rain, but I jumped every time a loud blast of thunder cracked! I was so glad I was in and snug and did not have to go out!
I had run a couple errands earlier in the day, because I had heard the report that thunderstorms were expected in the afternoon, so I included a visit to the park in my running around. The water in the canal was down yesterday, but I am sure it is very full today. I will have to take a ride over there and check it out later on. I saw a flock of ibis and the squirrels running around but not many people were out. I was noticing the moss on the oak trees, how some trees have long, hanging strands and other very little. I can understand what a curiosity it is to northern tourists, while I have been used to it all my life. We used to be warned against it as kids, because of red bugs. Don't ask me what red bugs are...maybe they don't even exist! But God does, and He is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Luke 5:12-13 In one of the villages, Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he fell to the ground, face down in the dust, begging to be healed. "Lord", he said, "if you want to, you can make me well again." Jesus reached out and touched the man. "I want to," he said. "Be healed!" And instantly, the leprosy disappeared. Jesus has the ability and the willingness to heal us. We are not bothering God when we pray for healing; we are expressing our faith and trust in him. God's healing can reach every level of our lives. His healing brings a joy and freedom that cannot be contained.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love! Love and hugs, Amaryllis
