Living in the Light

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! The temp is not out of the sixties yet, and will be dropping steadily all day, because of the cold air leaking down from the north. Boo! The sun was shining dimly a few minutes ago, but now clouds are moving in, so looks like I won't be able to see Jupiter next to the moon tonight. Guess I'll have to wait until 2021! Ha.

Well, the birthday celebration continued yesterday, with a "surprise" lunch, with balloons and a big bag of gifts from Mari and Kris. The original plan had been to have it outside at Parkshore Grille, but due to the parade. Beach Drive was closed, so the Hangar made do nicely. We ate outside, because the day was comfortable, although every now and then, the breeze made it a bit cooler than we would have liked. It was fun watching the planes take off and land, and the Safari chopper make several trips. The clouds rolled in while we were there and being on the second floor, it was a good place to see the different formations. It was a fun time and very thoughtful of my friends. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 John 1:5-10

This is the message he has given us to announce to you.
God is light and there is no darkness in him at all.
So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God
but go on living in spiritual darkness. We are not living
in the truth. But if we are living in the light of God's
presence, just as Christ is, then we have fellowship
with each other, and the blood of Jesus His Son, cleanses
us from every sin.

If we say we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves
and refusing to accept the truth. But if we confess our sins
 to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us
from every wrong. If we claim we have not sinned, we are
calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place 
in our hearts.

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

Love and hugs,
