A Call to Persevere

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 had a lot of fog earlier and i thought maybe rain was coming, but then it cleared off and once again we have sun, clouds and temps in the low seventies. It looks like the cold front that was predicted is stalled over the northern part of Fl. So, our warm spring weather continues!

I can see a tiny, mango already which has formed on the tree next door, so there must be many more on the tree that I cannot see. I saw lots of mango seeds on the ground last year, which means critters besides humans enjoyed the fruit. Strawberries are plentiful right now, and the Festival is going on, so this is a good time for produce.

I am slowly feeling better, and the cough is improving. My lips are not quite as swollen as they were, but are still raw inside. Still do not know what caused that condition!  But I got to the audiologist yesterday and bought some batteries, and then to the library for some books. I always like to have something on hand to read.

The leaves seem to be almost off the trees, but now the seeds are collecting and falling, so allergies are kicking in. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Hebrews 10:21-25
And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God's people,
let us go right into the presence of God with true hearts
fully trusting him. For our evil consciences have been sprinkled
with Christ's blood to make us clean, and our bodies have
been washed with pure water.

Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we say
we have, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Think of
ways to encourage one another with outbursts of love and good deeds.
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do,
but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day
of his coming back again is drawing near.

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

Love and hugs,
