Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! Yes, it is still morning for another hour! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I was watching the weather channel while eating breakfast and saw the snow warnings, extreme cold in some states and even extending to the Outer Banks and Virginia!
Then Daryl sent a pic of the snow covered parking lot where he works in Cleveland TN. I know that cold weather is expected here, but today it is warm and sunny and I am glad I live in St. Petersburg!
Today is a contrast to yesterday, which was overcast and sprinkly most of the day. I like those days once in a while, but like the sun much better! When I went to the park, after finishing my laundry, There were quite a few cars there, even though it was not a nice day. I saw the usual anhinga drying out on the weir and the family of moorhens on the other side busily paddling about in the lake. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Romans 12:1-2 Dear Brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask? Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
Discovering God's purpose begins with a wholehearted commitment to God. We give ourselves to the Lord because he has given everything to us. God promises to make his will known to us as we make ourselves available to him.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
