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 humidity is on the rise, so our week or so of low humidity and pleasant temps. will soon be over. However, I can't complain about the sun and cool breezes!
I did not sleep well last night; in fact, I did not sleep! After tossing and turning until about 3 AM, I finally got up and went to the kitchen to get some warm milk and crackers. Then I sat and read until 4:15, when I went back to bed and slept for maybe an hour! Hopefully, I will do better tonight and maybe doze a little today.
Seems like colds are going around, still. My pest control man was sniffling, but he said it was allergies. However, it sounded more like a cold. I don't think he passed it on to me.
I received a pleasant surprise yesterday afternoon! When I opened the front door after a knock , I accepted a beautiful basket of lavender and purple daisy like flowers from my sons and grandson. They are just beautiful! I am blessed! The older delivery man had an impressive handlebar mustache which was waxed!
I drove to the park and saw a limpkin walking slowly around just pecking once in a while at different delicious items . God is good!
Be very careful, then how you live-not as unwise, but as wise,
making the most of every opportunity.
From the devotional book, Quiet Moments with God:
When we come to the end of the day and wonder why
things went wrong, we usually don't have to look very
far to discover the answer. Somehow, we lost our sense of
direction and couldn't seem to get back on track. To
ensure this doesn't happen again, or at least, not as often,
we can take some advice from National Geographic
photographer Dewitt Jones:
1. If there's a problem at work that has you stymied,
try looking at it from different points of view. Pray
for the eyes of your understanding to be enlightened.
Before he goes out to a shoot, Jones knows he has to
have a good camera with the right lens. Different lenses
give different perspectives. Jones experiments until he
finds the right one.
(con't next week)
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers
with thanksgiving, joy and love! And Happy Mothers's Day
to all the women...those who are mothers and those who have mothers!
Love and hugs,
