Wisdom from Paul

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 and a promise of a hot day, although water is still dripping off the roof from the thunderstorm last night around supper time.

I am unhappy because the start button on my A/C in the van went out yesterday, and I cannot get it fixed until tomorrow afternoon when the part comes in. I was so hot yesterday doing what errands I had to do! I guess I am just wimpy when it comes to being out of my comfort zone!
 I will be selective about what errands are necessities today and tomorrow!

I did get to the park and once again, the gopher tortoise was wandering around the area where he hangs out. Even though it was very warm, quite a few people were out, but I was anxious to get home and cool off! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 5:1-6
Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight
by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus
Christ, our Lord, has done for us. Because of our faith,
Christ has brought us into this place of highest privilege
where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look
forward to sharing God's glory.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials,
for we know that they are good for us --they help us learn
to endure. And endurance develops strength of character
in us and character strengthens our confident expectation
of salvation. And this expectation will not disappoint us.
For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has
given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

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

Love and hugs,
