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! Looks like the rain is mostly over, but I still have not seen the sun yet this morning. However, the thermometer is still going down, so by tonight we will begin to see the cold front moving in. Here it is the middle of Feb. and we are facing the coldest weather so far! Go Figure...
Due to the rain all day yesterday, I thought it was prudent for me to stay home. So, I read and then cleaned out a closet some more. Still have three to go! It is amazing how I hang on to clothes I have outgrown (ha) some years ago, thinking I can get in them sometime in the future! Not Likely!
I looked out the window mid-morning and saw a large flock of ibis pecking their way along a neighbor's year, totally unconcerned with the rain. Guess it just rolls off the feathery backs, like water off a duck! We needed the rain, so God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Hebrews 6: 7-12
When the ground soaks up the rain that falls
on it and bears a good crop for the farmer,
it has the blessing of God. But if a field bears
thistles and thorns, it is useless. The farmer will
condemn that field and burn it.
Dear friends, even though we are talking like
this, we really don't believe that it applies to you.
We are confident that you are meant for better
things, things that come with salvation. For God is not
unfair. He will not forget how hard you have worked
for him and how you have shown your love for him
by caring for other Christians , as you still do! Our
great desire is that you will keep right on loving others
as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what
you hope for will come true. Then you will not become
spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead you will follow
the example of those who are going to inherit God's
promises because of their faith and patience.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
