Good midday, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! It is another beautiful day with lots of sun and warming temps and very little wind. I should be out in it instead of in the house facing a load of laundry, but the day is not over yet...
My yard man came by yesterday and blew off the driveway, which was full of smashed acorns and twigs from the wind. He and his wife and kids had walked by Halloween and he noticed what a mess it was, so decided he had better do something about it. Now, if he could only do something about the flying cricket that is in the house...
I was at the park yesterday and enjoyed the peacefulness and the ibis and the egrets. The anhinga was back drying out the wings on the weir. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say again, rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter.
Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are
excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and
heard from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
