Psoaring thru Psalm 20

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! While the sun is shining this beautiful day, and the breeze is blowing, still, I am sort of chilly just sitting here. In fact, I was reluctant to get out of bed because I was comfy and warm. Oh, well, never was one to lay around. Besides,  being more or less active means I can get warmer faster.

As I was driving around Lynch Lake on the way to church yesterday, I saw a flock, well, it was a small flock, of wood storks. I have never seen that many together at one time, before. There must have been about six, and one of them was actually lying down in the grass. Guess they can fold those long legs underneath , so they can get comfortable. I also saw a flock of ducks with their heads all pointing up. Now, that was funny!. If I had not been driving, I would have taken a picture!

I was also in the park one day and saw the big, shiny gator again, sunning in the same place on the bank of the lake. Seems like they have a kind of radar to know to come back to a favorite spot year after year. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 20

In times of trouble, may the Lord respond to your cry.
May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from your sanctuary
and strengthen you  from Jerusalem.
May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings.

May he grant your heart's desire
and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory,
flying banners to honor our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons.
but we boast in the Lord our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm,

Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Respond to our cry for help.

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

Love and hugs,
