Psalm 1

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! The sky is overcast and we have promises of more thunderstorms today. But that's okay, we need the rain. Remember the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers". We did not get many April showers, but a good downpour just a couple days ago!

So Happy Mayday! I remember when I was attending Woodlawn Elem. School, back in the day, we celebrated May first with a real May pole, and danced around it winding ribbons all around . There was a talent competition to determine who the May queen would be. I sang the very old song, "Harbor Lights" as my contribution, and would have won, but I came down with chickenpox and had to drop out. Ah, memories. Back then, school was opened with a student reading scripture, prayer, and then the salute to our flag! No one objected, and it was an honor to be chosen to read the scripture! Oh, how times have changed!

Yesterday I went to the library, drove to Walmart for gas, and then stopped at the park to see a small gopher tortoise wandering around, and lots of squirrels, dashing across the street. There are so many happy birds around everywhere, I hear them at the park and in my neighborhood each time I go out! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 1

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the
advice of the wicked, or stand around with
sinners, or join in with scoffers. But they delight
in doing everything the Lord wants; day and night
they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank
bearing fruit each season without fail.
Their leaves never wither , and in all they do they prosper.

But this is not true of the wicked,
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by
the wind. They will be condemned at the time of
judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly.
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

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

Love and hugs,
