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 sun is shining, but the wind is blowing and clouds are scudding about. I saw the big line of a front that is heading this way, so tonight we are in for rain and probably tomorrow, also. But, yesterday was a beautiful, very warm day. In fact, I had my A/C on in the house. Seems like I turn it on earlier each year!
Yesterday was my younger son's birthday, and I discovered about three or four others in church had the same birthday, including the pastor! I have always loved the month of April! We had a good service, with communion served at the end.
I drove through the park on my way home and saw the water in the canal had really gone down again. I remember how dry the lake was some years ago, when it was actually mud. I was at the tower and saw a turtle struggling to get through the mud. That was a really dry year! There were quite a few people out enjoying the sun and shade and barbequing . A hawk flew up in front of me from the canal as I drove in. He had something in his claws and headed for the tall trees over the lake on the right. Must have had a nest there. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Sing out your thanks to the Lord;
sing praises to our God, accompanied by harps.
He covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
and makes the green grass grow in mountain pastures.
He feeds the wild animals,
and the young ravens cry to him for food.
The strength of a horse does not impress him;
how puny in his sight is the strength of a man.
Rather, the Lord's delight is in those who honor him.
Those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
