Paul's Thanksgiving

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! Lots of sunshine this morning, but we had rain later last night, so we remain very wet.

My yard man is working now, because he thought it was dry enough that his mower would not leave wheel marks in the grass. The water is really flowing in the gutter. I looked at it last night and watched it for a few minutes. No telling when it will dry up!

But it was just a few months ago that I was talking about the dry earth and how badly we needed rain! God sent it!

Well, the cute little bunny is still hanging around. Friday he was sitting, almost hidden, among the azaleas. I have no idea where the family lives, but there are the same ones across the street, or maybe there is a huge family of bunnies around here!

We have lots of butterflies, too, and they are really pretty. I was in the park over the weekend, and the canal is full. I saw an anhinga, a white egret, and on the way home, a  woodstork slowing ambling up the side of Lynch Lake. That was a bit unusual, because they usually hang around in the winter! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Colossians 1:9-10

So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard
about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding
of what he wants to give you in your lives, and we ask him to
make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live
will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually
do good, kind things for others. All the while you will learn
to know God better and better....

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

Love and hugs,
