Living to please others

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! What a contrast between today and yesterday! Lots of sunshine and very few clouds today...yesterday all clouds and the sun didn't peek through until about 5 PM just before sunset! I noticed the rain delay in St. Louis for the ball game and the postponement of the game in NY,  I know Tropicana Field has a lot of drawbacks, but games were not called because of rain!

I had a call from my house cleaners yesterday, that they would be coming in 45 minutes or so, so I thought I would have time to go to CVS, to pick up a few things. When I got back, they were already cleaning and kidded me about being gone. They know where the key is hidden, so they just let themselves in. I now have them coming every week, instead of two weeks. This is a luxury I allow myself at this time in my life and I am thankful for it!

When I opened the front door yesterday to get the paper, a little frog hopped away. Guess he was in a good place under the light, to catch bugs for his breakfast. Speaking of the paper, this morning I was reading about the fallen champion, Lance Armstrong. I thought it doesn't pay to put your hopes in humans because they fail, but Jesus never does! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 15:5-9
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 God came as a servant to the Jews to show that God is true to the promises he made to his ancestors. And he came so that Gentiles might also give glory to God for his mercies to them. 

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

Love and hugs,
