Colossians 4

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 clouds this morning with blue sky mixed in. Our rain came late yesterday, so I expect the same pattern today,

My handy man is coming to wash the house , so, hopefully, the rain pattern will hold off long enough for him to get all the mildew, dust, and webs off the sides of the building. Amazing how much dirt collects on the window sills from the lizards and birds. I had the washing done about a year ago, and it looked so fresh, so hopefully, the same thing will happen today!

My yard man came Friday, so the grass looks good for now, but grows fast with all the rain.

Well, I can see several ripe mangoes from my window...unfortunately, they are on the neighbor's tree. Since the tree is huge, and the fruit is high up, I don't know if she knows they are there or not.She will have to wait until they drop and hope the fruit rats don't get there first!

 I drove to the park over the weekend and saw preparations for a party one day and the next, few cars were parked, but a few people were sitting on the benches or leaning over the bridge, watching the water with the fishes swim below. I saw the moor hen again in the middle of a clump of hydrilla, so, maybe, there is a nest there. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Colossians  4:22
You slaves must obey your earthly masters in
everything you do. Try to please them all the time,
not just when they are watching you. Obey them
willingly because of your reverent fear of the Lord.
Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as
though you were working for the Lord rather than
for people. Remember that the Lord will give you
an inheritance as your reward, and the master you
are serving is Christ. ...

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

Love and hugs,
