1 Corinthians

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! Sunshine again this morning, and yesterday, but what a rainstorm we had yesterday! Actually, we had two downpours; one, about 1:30 which I was out in, and the other around supper time. Since the car needed a bath, I was kind of glad to have the rain pouring down on me.

My yard man was here yesterday, so the rain came at a good time. Seems like the ibis like to peck around after a good rain and I saw a flock of them moving and pecking through into the neighbor's grass, late yesterday evening.

After leaving the library, I drove to the park, where few people were out, and then on to Steak and Shake for a strawberry shake, driving in the downpour. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 3:5-9

Who is Apollos, and who is Paul, that we should be the
cause of such quarrels? Why, we're only servants. Through
us God caused you to believe. Each of us did the work the
Lord gave us. My job was to plant the seed in your hearts, and
Apollos watered it, but it was God, not we, who made it grow.
The ones who do the planting or watering aren't important,
but God is important , because he is the one who makes the
seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work
as a team with the same purpose. Yet they will be rewarded
individually, according to their own hard work. We work
together as partners who belong to God. You are God's field,
God's building--not ours....

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

Love and hugs,
