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 in the long string of perfect, but dry, days we have had. Yesterday was great for beach and outside activities, since many people were off.
Brian made a safe return from TN after spending a few days with Daryl and Matthew. They had perfect weather, too , for their short trips to the Smokies and all around the scenic areas. . They enjoyed their time together and got to relax a bit.
Meanwhile, I saw some of the remembrance ceremonies at National Cemeteries and heard that the celebration at Bay Pines is one of the largest in the country. With about 3000 there, I was glad I went on Friday, when it was not so crowded!
When I visited the park yesterday, I had to stop to veer around a very large gopher trying to cross the road. One incoming car, stopped and the driver hopped out to rescue the critter and deposit him on the grass, out of harm's way.
I have noticed the Royal Poinciana's now in bloom and also, the beautiful magnolia are very colorful along with the jacarandas. This is a wonderful time of the year! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,
speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
Those who refuse to slander others or
harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends.
Those who despise persistent sinners
and honor the faithful followers of the Lord
and keep their promises even when it hurts.
Those who do not charge interest on the money they lend,
and who refuse to accept bribes to testify against the innocent.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my
prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
