The Armor of God

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! There are white , puffy clouds scudding across the blue sky and a slight breeze blowing, and it is cooler than I thought it would be this morning, but I think it will warm up soon.

I am later than I thought I would be, but I stripped the bed and washed sheets, so now I have to make the bed soon. Then I have another load of clothes in the washer. Seems like for just one person, I have a lot of laundry to do, but I don't do laundry nearly as often as I used to with family! I got out to do some shopping yesterday and, of course, wound up at the park, just to check it out. The gator was not in his usual place, but the ibis were pecking and the I saw an egret. BTW, it looks like an osprey is slowly building a nest on top of the lights at Gateway Mall, where the old nest blew down. They build on the platforms put up for them, even in very populated areas. So, God is good!

Eph. 6:10-13 NIV

Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take
your stand against the devil's schemes.

For your struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world, and against
the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that
when the day of evil comes, you may be able to
stand your ground, and, after you have done everything to stand.

In addition to the armor, take up the shield of faith
 with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

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

Love and hugs,
