God offers comfort to all

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! Lots of sunshine, few clouds and cooler temps on the way! Should be a beautiful weekend! Yesterday it was very hot in the sun, which I usually try to stay out of, but I was walking into Beall's in the sun, and couldn't help that!

I returned a book and checked out some more at the Library, and there was a younger male librarian checking books. Now, I don't want to seem prejudiced or anything, but it just seems strange to me that a guy would choose library science as his future career. Maybe that is because I hardly ever see men in that profession...just a thought. But, anyway, he was efficient, but not as friendly as the other, older man that works there. After I left there, I went on to the park and enjoyed the quiet, sunny, shady shadows on the freshly mowed berms; long strings of gray moss swaying in the breezes and squirrels scampering across the road and climbing up the trees. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

2 Corinthians 1:3-7

All praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the source of  every mercy and the God who comforts us. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. You can be sure that the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. So when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your benefit and salvation! For when God comforts us, it is so we, in turn, can be an encouragement to you.Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that  as you share in suffering, you will also share God's comfort.

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

Love and hugs,
