A Call to Remain Faithful

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 some high clouds today and wind, but earlier the sunrise was beautiful. It is still so warm, I left a window open last night, but a blanket on the bed still feels good.

Well, I no longer have a garden of oak trees growing in the rain gutter! Rick, my handy man came yesterday and cleaned out the mud, leaves, etc. that had accumulated, then ran the hose water through to make sure everything was open. So, all is good! I have said this before, but I am so happy to have people available to do what needs to be done!

I saw the roseate spoonbills yesterday at the park. They had worked their way almost to the second bridge, just concentrating on their scooping up whatever they eat. What a pretty contrast they make against the muddy, dark background of the swampy banks of the canal! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:


"But you, dear friends, must continue to build your lives
on the foundation of your holy faith. And continue to pray
as you are directed by the Holy Spirit. Live in such a way
that God's love can bless you as you wait for the eternal
life that our Lord, Jesus Christ in his mercy is going to give
you. Show mercy to those who faith is wavering. Rescue
others by snatching them from the flames of judgment.
There are still others to whom you need to show mercy,
 but be careful that you aren't contaminated by their sins.

And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you from
stumbling, and who will bring you into his glorious presence
 innocent of sin and with great joy. All glory to him, who alone
 is God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Yes, glory,
majesty, power, and authority belong to him. in the beginning,
now, and forevermore. Amen.

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

Love and hugs,
