Matthew 6

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! This is a much different morning than yesterday. We have bright sun and few clouds, but the water is still dripping off the roof, so that was a lot of water that came down! Our street gutters have not been dry for weeks. But we will take what God gives, because dry times will come!

I did not go out at all yesterday because of the rain, but my cleaning ladies came in and we had a conversation about the big yard sale they have coming up. They are inviting all the neighbors who want to join in, so it might turn out to be a neighborhood sale! I have lots of stuff that needs to be cleaned out, but I get weary just thinking about labeling and sorting and packing. They offered to take the stuff and sell it for me, but I am not inclined to do that right now. Kim's granddaughter is going to have a lemonade stand, (she's only about 4 or 5) and she is really excited about it. Sounds like a big crowd for a while 

Well, I said farewell and wait until next year to the Rays last night. It was fun to see Longoria's three home runs and to see the Rays win their last game. Also, sad to see B. J. Upton's tears in the dug out as he probably played his last game with the Rays. He will be a free agent and stands to make mega bucks if another club picks him up, but he has played with the Rays since he was 19. Sigh.Only 131 days until they play again!  God is Good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Teaching about money and possession

Matthew 6:25-31
So I tell you, don't worry about everyday
life---whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes.
Doesn't life consist of more than
food and clothing? Look at the birds. They don't need
to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your
Heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more
valuable to him than they are. Can all your worries add
a single moment to your life? Of course not....

So don't worry about having enough food, drink or
clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so
deeply concerned about these things? You're 
heavenly Father already knows all your needs,

and he will give you all you need from
day to day if you live for him and make the
Kingdom of God your primary concern...

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

Love and hugs,
