Jesus, The Way to our Father

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! After a cloudy start, the sun is out and the breeze is blowing, and I still have the A/C on from yesterday! The temp got up into the eighties yesterday and today will be about the same. Good weather!

What a difference a day makes! I have not been feeling well because of a new medication the doc prescribed for me, so I discontinued the med. and thought I would be all right to attend church yesterday; got all dressed and ready to go, went out to the car, and just the thought of walking into church seemed impossible, I was suddenly so tired, so I came back in and changed clothes to rest. I was not happy to find that there is nothing on TV that is a church service that late, and did not think to go online for a live streaming of something. I really wanted to hear our Supt. speak, but hopefully, I can pick him up from the church website. Sigh. I am happy to report that I feel almost back to normal, now...normal, for me, that is!

I drove over to the park much later in the afternoon, and saw a black and white anhinga on the weir, and a baby gopher tortoise near the large gopher hole further down. The I saw my favorite...a roseate spoonbill near the first bridge! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

John 14:21-25

Those who obey my commandments are the ones who love me. And
because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will reveal
myself to each one of them.

Judas, (not Judas Iscariot, but the other disciple with that name), said to
him."Lord, why are you going to reveal yourself only to us and not
to the world at large?"

Jesus replied, " All those who love me will do what I say. My Father
will love them, and we will come to them and live with them. Anyone
who doesn't love me will not do what I say. And remember, my words
are not my own. This message is from the Father who sent me. I am
telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the
Father sends the Counselor as my representative--and by the Counselor
I mean the Holy Spirit--he will teach you everything and will remind
you of everything I myself have told you."

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

Love and hugs,
