Give God Your Complete Attention

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! And it is a beautiful day! The sun is shining brightly and very little breeze is blowing, butterflies are flitting about and not a cloud in the sky! Temp is supposed to warm up to almost eighty today, while the rest of the country prepares for a deep freeze!We are blessed!

My yard men came a while ago, and I told him I expected him last week, but he said he had gone to Alabama for Thanksgiving, and was stuck in the airport for sixteen hours, was told to go to another an hour away, and the same situation happened there,, so he did not get home until 1 AM and took the day off Monday. Since the grass does not grow much in the winter, it was just messy from the twigs and acorns and leaves that are still falling. Anyway, they mowed today and edged, so it will be good for a couple weeks, now.

Yesterday,, on my way to the park, I spied the Metlife blimp cruising along over the interstate. I was hoping to get to a spot where I could take a picture of it, but by the time I got to a stopping place, it was already gone. Since today is so pretty, maybe they will have it up again. I guess it is in town or the area for bowl games coming up!

There weren't many people at the park, but lots of ibis and squirrels. The joggers and runners are really enjoying the space and exercise, and I even saw a lady pushing her walker all the way down the sidewalk, getting a good bit of exercise! Good for her! God is good!

From the little devotional book, Knowing God:

Worship the Lord your God and...serve him only.

Matthew4:10 HCSB

Who rules your heart? Is it God, or is it something else?Do you give God
your firstfruits or your last? Have you ever given Christ your heart, your soul,
your talents, your time and your testimony , or have you given him little more
than a few hours each Sunday morning?

In the book of Exodus, God warns that we should place no gods before Him. Yet all
too often we place our Lord in second, third or fourth place as we worship the
gods of pride, greed, power or lust. When we unwittingly place possessions
or relationships above our love for the Creator , we must seek His forgiveness
and repent from our sins.

Does God rule your heart? Make sure that the honest answer to this question
is a resounding yes! In the life of every righteous believer, God comes first.
And that's precisely the place that He reserves in your heart.

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

Love and hugs,
