This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Lots of sunshine today and what a beautiful day it promises to be! A little cool, but nice. Yesterday was nice and warmed up so that I only needed a light jacket for cool buildings.
I had a wonderful birthday celebration day, with lots of hugs from people at church and Facebook was full of greetings from all over the US. God has blessed me with many friends! Brian took me to the Olive Garden at my request and I had a slice of cake served with singing greetings and a candle! Cute and embarrassing. Then I got a call from David in the afternoon and drove over to his house to take him his long delayed birthday card, while he gave me mine. It was good to have chat time with him.
After that I watched football games and topped it off with a baked apple to celebrate the Ravens win! God is good!
From the little devotional book; Knowing God:
Let God Guide the Way;
The true children of God are those who let God's spirit lead them.
Romans 8:14 NCV
The Bible promises that God will guide you if you let Him.
Your job is to let Him. But sometimes , you will be tempted to
do otherwise. Sometimes you'll be tempted to go along with
the crowd; other times, you'll be tempted to do things your
way. When you feel these temptations, resist them.
God has promised that when we ask for His help, He will not
withhold it, so ask. Ask Him to meet the needs of your day.
Ask Him to lead you, to protect you, and to correct you. And
trust the answers He gives.
God stands at the door and waits. When you knock, He opens.
When you ask, He answers. Your task, of course to seek His
guidance prayerfully, confidently, and often.
Dear Lord, thank you for your constant presence and your constant love.
I draw near to You this day with the confidence that you are ready to
guide me. Help me walk closely with You, Father, and help me share
Your Good News with all who cross my path.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
