Psoaring thru Psalm 46

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! We have had such a string of beautiful weather it seems as if it could go on forever, but unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and we will soon be having high humidity and high temps soon! But, we enjoy this perfection while we can!

I mentioned butterflies yesterday, and I am just so enthralled watching them flit by. Seems like there are more than usual in my yard, and they are so beautiful! God has made things beautiful in His time.

Well, I noticed the driveway is covered in green leaves and twigs once again. A squirrel must be building his nest right above and is not too neat about it! Jason, the yard man, just cleaned up the mess from a few days ago, and now it is messed up again. Tsk!

I don't know if they are that messy in the park, but I drove through yesterday, and saw a baby chasing after its mother. Speaking of babies, I noticed a mama duck and about twelve babies at the end of my street. There is no water near, so they must have come a long way, just out and about. They are so cute, but turn into nuisances when they get older. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 46
God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear, even if earthquakes come
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!

A river brings joy to the city of our God,
the sacred home of the Most High.
God himself lives in that city, it cannot be destroyed.
God will protect it at the break of day.
The nations are in an uproar,
and kingdoms crumble!
God thunders and the earth melts!

The Lord Almighty is here among us,
the God of Israel is our fortress.

Come see the glorious works of the Lord.
See how he brings destruction upon the world
and causes wars to end throughout the earth.
He breaks the bow and snaps the spear in two.
He burns the shields with fire.

Be silent, and know that I am God.
I will be honored by every nation,
I will be honored throughout the world"

The Lord Almighty is here among us
the  God of Israel is our fortress.

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

Love and hugs,
