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! More sun and more warm temps today;just another is a string of near perfect weather.

I did not see the pink moon last night nor the planet arrangement. I tried but apparently there was too much haze , although I saw several photos on FB last night from locals, so I know it was visible from other places. I just know I had difficulty sleeping. Sometimes the full moon causes that!

I took a trip across town out to Macy's yesterday, right after lunch, and it must have been good timing, because after circling up and down the rows a couple times, I found a perfect parking space almost right in front of the doors, leading into the cosmetic counters which was my destination. The sales associate who latched onto me by asking my name and giving up on the first name, decided to call me by my last name, was very chatty with a fast southern accent and sold me on some things I did not come in to buy. However, what I bought, I will use, and I had not been there in a long time. BTW, I received a call from her a few minutes ago, thanking me for coming in and assuring me she would be glad to help me in the future. I predict she will reach her sales goal, if she has one!

On my way across town, I appreciated the beauty of several jacaranda trees in full bloom! They are lovely and messy when the blossoms fall.

I have heard so many bird calls when I step outside here at home. Maybe because of the long winter up north, they have decided to stay awhile here. I stopped in at the park and saw the larger birds there...the anhinga, the egret and the ibis, all looking very busy with the business of eating! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 13:6

If I could speak in any language in heaven or on earth, but
didn't love others, I would only be making meaningless
noise like a loud gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the
gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future
 and knew everything about everything, but didn't love
others, what good would I be? And if I had the gift of faith
so that I could speak to a mountain  and make it move,
without love I would be no good to anybody. If I gave every-
thing I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I
could boast about it, but if I didn't love others, I would be of
no value whatsoever....

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

Love and hugs,
