The Golden Rule

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! Overcast with clouds looks like the weather for today. Also. rain is coming again, but right now. there is a slight breeze  and it is still a little cool, although warmer than yesterday, which turned out to be beautiful.

I took my city payment to the P.O. yesterday, because our mail delivery is so erratic these days. Sometimes it doesn't come until after 6 in the evening. I usually pay everything online, but ever since I learned the city charges $1.00 if you pay them online, I usually send a check. I called about that, and the clerk was sympathetic, but could not change the rules. Doesn't make sense to me!

Anyway, after I left the P.O. I drove on to the park and saw a few more people out than the day before. Something strange happened. When I drove in, a car was stopped in the other lane, for no apparent reason, and when I drove  out several minutes later, it was still there. A Ranger truck and another car were coming in toward me, so I had to stop and wait. Well, the Ranger stopped to see what was the matter, and the car took off like a shot leaving lots of smoke behind!! Looked like something fishy was going on.  Anyway, I saw an anhinga and several great white herons , looking beautiful as they dined on whatever they could catch! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 6:27-31

Love for Enemies
But if you are willing to listen, I say, love
your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.

Pray for the happiness of those who hurt you. If
someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other
cheek. I someone demands your coat, offer your
shirt also. Give what you have to anyone who
asks you for it; and when things are taken away
from you , don't try to get them back.
Do for others as you would like them to do for you.

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

Love and hugs,
