1 Corinthians

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 bright, breezy, cooler than usual day means a great start to the weekend! Even though it will get up to ninety this afternoon, still the change in weather is noticeable. Already stores have Halloween and Thanksgiving displays, which means Christmas is not far behind!

I am feeling much better today, so I guess my system has gotten used to the antibiotic, but I was careful what I ate yesterday, and had no more upsets. Praise God! I just took it easy, and while eating lunch, I heard what sounded like a huge airplane flying too low over the house. Turned out to be Jason the lawn guy, on his riding mower. That machine is loud!! I chatted with him a few minutes when he was finished, mostly about our various ailments, but also about the grass, or lack thereof, and what to do about it when the time comes.  He is interesting to talk to. He always puts banana peels in the staghorn fern when I have one, because he is very tall and can reach, and I cannot. Anyway, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 3:5-9
Who is Apollos, and who is Paul, that we should be the cause of such quarrels?
 Why, we're only servants. Through us God caused you to believe .
 Each of us did the work the Lord gave us.
My job was to plant the seed in your
hearts, and Apollos watered it,
but it was God, not we, who made it grow.
The ones who do the planting or watering
aren't important, but God is important
because he is the one who makes the seed grow.
The one who plants  and the one who waters
work as a team with the same purpose. 
Yet they will be rewarded individually,
according to their own hard work. We work
together as partners who belong to God. 
You are God's field, God's building--not ours....

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

Love and hugs,
