1 John A new Commandment

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! It is quite a bit cooler this morning, which really feels good! I heard it was 39 in Tallahassee, so I am happy we are a good thirty plus degrees warmer here! But we have sunshine and that makes everything good.

I worked around the house yesterday, and then went out to run some errands, stopping in at the park, which was quiet and peaceful, with only a few people enjoying the natural beauties.

There is a butterfly garden in back of the building. and while I do not have a garden for them, still I see many different kinds in the afternoon, flitting back and forth along the hedge. I looked at the different varieties on the internet, but could not find the yellow and black striped one that I saw the other day. However, a swallowtail flew by yesterday, along with some smaller yellow ones, which I believe are called sulfurs.

My yard man was here this morning, and while we were talking, Victoria egret came strolling up almost to us, and slowly, but gracefully, meandered on across the yard, after stopping to stare at the oak tree for a few minutes. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 John 2:9
If anyone says, "I am living in the light," but hates a Christian
brother or sister," that person is still living in darkness. Anyone
who loves other Christians is living in the light and does not
cause anyone to stumble. Anyone who hates a Christian brother
or sister is living and walking in darkness. Such a person is lost,
having been blinded by the darkness.

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

Love and hugs,
