Jesus, the True Vine

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! Well, we got our cooler weather last night. My thermometer read 58 outside for this morning, but the prediction is for warming up into the seventies as soon as the foggy overcast burns off.. So we will have great weather for awhile longer!

I drove over to the park during  a cloudy afternoon and saw a worse problem with leaves and acorns than I have! Of course, there are a lot more trees than I have, but since the drive is not blown off any more, it stays full of all kinds of oak dust, which is why I keep sneezing and blowing.  So, you take the good with the bad. I saw a couple of ibis in the bare trees along the canal and noticed the water is still high from the rain a couple days ago.

Well, I loaded up the back of the van with the bag of clothes from the closet cleaning and another bag of belts. Things really do accumulate! Now, I am determined to put about six irons, still working, in with the clothes and take everything over to the Salvation Army. Someone will get some good from these things! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

John 15:5-8

Yes, I am the vine, you are the branches. 
Those who remain in me, and I in them, 
will produce much fruit,. For apart from me
you can do nothing. Anyone  who parts from
me is thrown away like a useless branch
and withers. Such branches are gathered
into a pile to be burned. But if you stay
joined to me and my words remain in you,
you may ask any request you like, and it will
be granted! My true disciples  produce much
fruit. This brings much glory to my Father.

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

Love and hugs,
