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 overcast skies this morning, and the promise of rain again this afternoon.
We had a really good downpour late yesterday afternoon that gave the ground a good soaking. It must have rained for a good twenty minutes or half an hour! We needed it!
I did not do much yesterday...just stayed in and did laundry. I looked up florists in San Antonio, TX online and called one and asked for flowers to be delivered to our daughter's grave in Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery. I wanted to have photos taken of it with the flowers and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they do that regularly and will email the photos to me both before and after the flowers are placed! What a blessing!
I noticed some more tiny mangoes are developing on the neighbor's tree right outside my window. The first ones fell off, but maybe these will stay on the branch. I also watched two crazy tiny bugs flying in very tight, very fast circles back and forth in front of the hedge. I have no idea what they are, but God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
We should please others. If we do what helps them,
we will build them up in the Lord. For even Christ
did not please himself. As the Scriptures say, "Those
who insult you, are also insulting me." Such things
were written in the scriptures long ago to teach us.
They give us hope and encouragement as we wait
for God's promises.
May God, who gave this patience and encouragement,
help you live in complete harmony with each other--
each with the attitude of Christ Jesus toward the other.
Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving
praise and glory to God, the father of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
So accept each other as Christ has accepted you, then
God will be glorified.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my
prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
