The Future

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!  Since the fog has burned off, the sun is shining and we are having another beautiful, warm day! This will be the last one for a couple days, however, because tomorrow we are to maybe get rain in the late afternoon, (which we need) and then another chilly night for a change. Last night I left my window open and took the heavy blanket off the bed, because it was so warm. Back on the bed tomorrow with the blanket!

I did a little cleaning out of old papers and magazines yesterday, Things really do tend to accumulate if I don't keep up with them. I took a trip over to the library to return some books and check some more out. and was surprised to find the shelves full and all the weekend returns filed and put away. I thought Monday would be a bad day, but I was wrong. I am always interested to see all the computers being used in all the different rooms they have. I guess people are still looking for work and using them for research and such. I am very happy to have a branch so close to my house.

I also visited the park and saw the turtles on the bank of the weir and the gopher tortoise sitting at his doorway looking over the situation from a ground level.

Well, I see where Karl Wallenda is walking across U.S. 41 at eleven without a safety device, down in Sarasota, so I will try to remember to watch. Later on this summer, he will walk across the Grand Canyon. What a way to make a living! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

How can I be sure God will direct my future in this life?

Psalm 32:8 The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your love. I will advise you and watch over you."

The Lord directs our steps. Though the pathway may lead through dark valleys or seem to take unnecessary  detours. we will one day look back and discover the Lord's way was best.

Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Too often we doubt God's care. We are tempted to think he is neglecting us or giving us the bare minimum. We have hope in the knowledge that God, our loving  Creator, will always give us his best.

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

Love and hugs,
