I had to take the van to Cartek yesterday to have a new battery installed. When I hear the car making noises like it doesn't want to crank up in the morning, I know something is wrong. Sure enough, after Ray tested and charged it, the tester said to replace the battery, so, since this one is guaranteed for five years, it will be good long after I quit driving. In fact, it may out last me! After I took off from Cartek, I went on to do some shopping and then Arby's to get a Reuben for lunch.
I stopped in at the park, to see several Progress Energy trucks there, for what reason, I do not know, since the only power is in the public building, the shop, and the house on the property. Whatever they were doing, required four large bucket trucks. Oh, well...I wish I had taken a picture of two ibises across the canal. They were outstanding in their whiteness,against the dark, muddy background of the swampy earth as they pecked very near to the water. God is good!
From the little devotional book; Knowing God
Be cheerful, no matter what; pray all the time;
thank God, no matter what happens.
This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
Thessalonians 5:16-18 MSG
If you genuinely desire to know God, then you must pray ...a lot.
Is prayer an integral part of your daily life, or is it a hit-or-miss habit?
Do you" pray without ceasing," or is your prayer life an afterthought?
Do you regularly pray in the quiet moments of the early morning, or
do you bow your head only when others are watching? If your
prayers have become more a matter of habit than a matter of passion,
you're robbing yourself of a deeper relationship with God. And how can
you rectify this situation? By praying more frequently and more fervently.
God is always near, and He's always ready to hear from you. So don't
worry about things; pray about them. God is waiting and listening!
Don't be overwhelmed. Take it one day and one prayer at a time.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
