Good Friday

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!  Seems like the Lord made an overcast day with lots of rain coming in from the Gulf. I have to go out this morning, so, hopefully, the heavy rain will hold off until this afternoon as predicted!

As I was on my way to the Park yesterday, I watched a traffic-stopper. Mama duck fearlessly led her dozen or so babies straight across 62nd Ave. without caring that traffic was heavy. She must have thought in her little mama duck heart that everyone would stop for her, and they did. Such faith! No one blew horns at the delay and I think those who saw up close must have smiled no matter what tasks they were involved in...God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 24

But very early on Sunday Morning the women came
 to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.
They found that the stone covering the entrance had
been rolled aside. So they went in, but they couldn't
find the body of the Lord Jesus. They were puzzled,
 trying to think what could have happened to it.
Suddenly, two men appeared to them, clothed in
dazzling robes. The women were terrified  and bowed
low before them. Then the men asked, "Why are you
looking in a tomb for someone who is alive?" He isn't
here! He has risen from the dead! Don't you remember
what he told you back in Galilee, 'that the Son of Man
must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and that
he would rise again the third day?"

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

Love and hugs,
