God's Love

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! The fog has burned off around here and now the sun is shining warm and bright! Funny thing about fog. I have noticed how quiet all the sounds are when the thick fog mutes all outside noises...traffic is quiet, and there just seems to be a hush over everything. But then the sun shines and everything pick up again!

I really tired myself out yesterday, by making a trip to Publix and buying a lot of stuff I was out of. Sitting around during the rainy days was not a favor to myself. I should have kept moving even in the house! But the one thing that made it not a pleasure, was the deli section. I wish people were more considerate. I could not get in because of the carts blocking the aisle. It's not that there were so many people, but they had parked their carts so that they were effectively keeping people out. I am not bold enough to excuse myself and barge in. Sigh.

After filling my van with the goods, I went on to the park and saw a lot fewer people than the day before. I think because school was still in session and more people at work, made the park less crowded. The water is up in the canal because of the rain, and I saw a flock of ibis contentedly pecking along the berm. It was a beautiful day! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-21
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan,
I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of
everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his
glorious, unlimited resources , he will give you mighty
inner strength through His Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ
will be more and more at home in your hearts as you
trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil
of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power
to understand, as all God's people should, how wide,

how long, how high  and how deep his love really is. May
you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great
you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled
with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us,
he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever
dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages.

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

Love and hugs,
