Today's Prayer

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! Our near perfect weather continues with blue skies, some puffy clouds and cool winds. Doesn't get much better than this!

I ran some errands in the early afternoon and did some grocery shopping with a list. If I don't take a  list, I usually find I pick up some items I do not need and forget some that I do. I did not watch the bagger, so discovered he made some of the bags too heavy. ( I usually take my own). Oh, well, I used my muscles and was able to get everything in the house.

After I finished shopping, I went to the park and enjoyed the peace and quiet of nature for a minute or two. There were quite a few people there for the middle of the day; just about all of them locals By the way, Is orange juice good for the complexion? When I opened the top of the oj container it splashed on my glasses and face. Guess I will find out!. God is good!

From the little devotional book Knowing God:

Ask, and God will give to you. Search, and you will find.
Knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, everyone who
asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find.
And everyone who knocks will have the door opened.

Matthew 7:7-8 NCV

                                      Today's Prayer

Dear God, You are nearer to me than the air that I breathe.
help me to feel Your presence in every situation and in
every circumstance. You are with me, Lord, in times of
celebration and in times of sorrow.You are with me when
I am strong and when I am weak. You never leave my side,
even when it seems to me that you are far away. Today and
every day, Dear God, let me feel You and acknowledge Your
presence so that others, too, might come to know You
through me. Amen.

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

Love and hugs,
