Living by the Spirit's Power

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! We have had a series of days with lots of sun and the beautiful, white and towering clouds, which build up in the afternoon.  I will have to go to Weedon Island park or the Gandy beach one of these days, just to see the clouds without any wires in the way.

After a shopping trip to Northeast Shopping Center, I drove on to the park to see an ibis all by himself pecking along the freshly mowed grass, people strolling along and lots of cars for a weekday afternoon. Later on, I looked outside after I got home and discovered it had been raining...just a gentle rain that I couldn't even hear. It promises to be another day like yesterday, but God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 6:15-22
So be careful how you live, not as fools but
as those who are wise.  Make the most of
every opportunity for doing good in these  evil
days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to understand
what the Lord wants you to do. Don't be drunk
with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead,
let the Holy Spirit fill and control you. Then you
will sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs
among yourselves, making music to the Lord in  your
hearts. And you will always give thanks for everything
to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Love and hugs,
