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! And happy November first! It is kinda overcast and cool this morning, but I saw the sun a few minutes ago, I think. There is even rain predicted, but that may not be in this area. Whatever happens, we are blessed not to have the cleanup going on in the northern states.
As I bought a bag of Kit Kats and Twix yesterday, I thought of trick or treaters, but did not have a soul come to the door. Oh, well, guess they will get eaten eventually, by me. If I had my grandson here, they would not last long. Twix are his favorites!
As I was going by a retention pond yesterday, I caught a flash of pink, and sure enough, a roseate spoonbill was preening himself. What a pretty color God gave them! As I drove to the park, I saw a great gray heron and several ibis pecking at the picnic tables. Not many people were there, but a few dog walkers were just arriving. The trees were showing signs of the wind, as there were small branches lying around that had been broken off. Looked like my front yard, which also has broken branches and twigs lying around. I swept off the porch and almost needed a shovel, it was so deep in acorns and trash from the trees! But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How can I satisfy the deep longings of my life?
Don't worry about having enough food or drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your 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.
When we seek the Lord and order our lives according to his priorities, everything else falls into proper perspective. We can trust him to provide all we need.
Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened.
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.
Faith does not mean inaction. The Lord invites us to earnestly pursue our godly desires. As we do, he promises to lead us into joy and satisfaction.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, love and joy!
Love and hugs,
