Why should I be Faithful?

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! Drops are still falling off the roof  once in a while, from the windy storm we had yesterday late afternoon.

I had planned to attend the meeting at church at 6 PM, but lightning, wind and heavy rain gave me a sign that I should stay home. The football game in Tampa was delayed by lightning, and a plant on my  front porch  blew over, plus I did not get the trash dumpster pulled down to the curb because of the storm. I should have taken it down early afternoon. Oh, well, it will get picked up Thursday!

But, we have sunshine this morning, and yesterday was a good day for church in the morning.Brian took me to lunch at the newly remodeled Bob Evans on US 19. It has really been renovated! I could not resist buying a couple cinnamon blossoms to take home, from their bakery.

I took a ride through the park after church and saw an egret almost hidden in the bulrushes, posing on the alert for a fish in the canal. It was such a typical Florida scene. It reminded me of a painting! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Proverbs 3:3-4
Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace, write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people and you will gain a good reputation. One of our greatest securities in life is that of a good name. Faithfulness brings a good reputation and trust from others. When we have problems, sometimes our reputation can be the key to a positive outcome.

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

Love and hugs,
