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! It is definitely cooler this morning as the cold front gradually moves down on us, and the blowing wind makes it feel even cooler. So I guess this means March is coming in like a lion, so maybe it will go out like a lamb!
I was watching TV while eating my breakfast and saw the live broadcast from the Plant City strawberry festival. MMM! the shortcake really looked good! I had fresh strawberries on my oatmeal this morning and they were good and sweet, so it is a good crop this year. This is also the year of the worms, since I noticed yesterday, much to my dismay, webs hanging down from the oaks. They swing in the breeze and dangle and sway when the wind blows.. While the shade is a power saver in the summer, still trees require a lot of sweeping, yard cleaning and grumbling on my part. I am still grateful that we planted them forty or more years ago!
I went to Sweetbay after my cleaning ladies left yesterday, and Jason had come to clean up the yard before them, so I took off to get some milk and other stuff. After I finished shopping I drove to the park, and saw the water in the canal was higher since the good rain we had Tuesday. I spotted three or four ibis as white spots on the berm, pecking around one of the picnic tables.. A small crowd was there walking dogs, jogging, and enjoying the good weather. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will thank the Lord with all my heart
as I meet with his godly people.
How amazing are the deeds of the Lord!
All who delight in him should ponder them.
Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty.
His righteousness never fails.
Who can forget the wonders he performs?
How gracious and merciful is our Lord!
He gives food to those who trust him;
he always remembers his covenant.
He has shown his great power to his people,
by giving them the lands of other nations.
All he does is just and good
and all his commandments are trustworthy.
They are forever true,
to be observed faithfully and with integrity.
He has paid a full ransom for his people.
He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever.
What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has!
Reverence for the Lord is the foundation
of true wisdom.
The rewards of wisdom come to all who obey him.
Praise his name forever!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
