God's will

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! This is another warm, sunny day in Paradise, with the promise of heat and humidity, blue skies, and puffy white clouds. Sounds like a good long weekend coming up!

I did some shopping yesterday, and after finishing, went to Steak and Shake for one of their steak franks. (Hot dogs to me). I ordered it with chili and cheese, but when I got home with it, realized there was no cheese on it. Oh, well.

I have seen the mama duck with her babies still in the neighborhood, but the flock has diminished in size. Some of the babies have disappeared while roaming all over the streets. Mama pretty much lets them go where they want, but she stands and waits patiently  for them wherever they are.

I went to the park later on, and all was quiet. Not very many people; just ibises pecking around. The moss is hanging lower and lower from some of the older trees, so it sways in the breeze. Very much Florida!

As I was opening the garage door and getting ready to take the dumpster down to the curb, My friend and cleaning lady across the street came over and said she would take it down for me! What a kind and caring person she is! I am blessed and God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Does God really have a plan for my life?

Psalm 139:3 You chart the path ahead of me and tell me
where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am.

Psalm 32:8 The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best
pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will work out his plans for my life--for
your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don't abandon me
for you made me.

God has a plan for our lives. It is not an unthinking, automated
script that we must follow. It is a journey with various destinations
and appointments and a great deal of freedom as to the pace and
scope of the travel. God's plan for us will always have a sense of
mystery, but we can be certain that he will guide us as long as we
rely on his leading.

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

Love and hugs,
