Psoaring thru Psalm 37

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! Yesterday, clouds and probably rain. I stayed home from church because of the rain. I may have been able to get in without getting wet, but by the time church was over, it was pouring down, so I thought it prudent to stay in. I am sure God will forgive me. Speaking of rain, we had thundershowers during the early morning hours. I kept seeing lightning flashes through the drapes, and hearing thunder for an hour or so, while trying to sleep. But, everything is certainly green!

I went shopping Saturday and then, drove into the park, where I saw a great white heron in the canal and had to wait for a flock of ibis to cross over in front of me. They were not in any hurry, but neither was I, so I just waited and admired their beauty. Mostly, over the weekend, I watched the Rays, and several portions of football games and read a lot, so it was a restful weekend. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 37:1-9

Don't worry about the wicked.
Don't envy those who do wrong.
For like grass, they soon fade away.
Like springtime flowers, they soon wither.

Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord.
and he will give you your heart's desires.

Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him and he will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn.
and the justice of your cause will shine
like the noonday sun.

Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their wicked schemes.

Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others--
it only leads to harm
For the wicked will be destroyed,
But those who trust in the Lord will
Possess the land....

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

Love and hugs,
