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 another beautiful day of sunshine and lower humidity! Since we have already exceeded the rainfall total for the whole month of May, we will be dry for the next week or two. At least, that is the prediction. I know the street gutters are still flowing with water in front of my house. The staghorn fern got watered well, and is looking perky from the rain.
I heard a sermon from Joel Osteen Sunday before I left for church. He was preaching/teaching on Redeeming your Time. That has kind of stuck with me, because of all the time I waste going through the social media pages on the computer. He gave examples of not spending time with negative people....in a job you hate, etc. and pointed out that Jesus surrounded himself with 12 men who supported and encouraged him. It was a good lesson for me!
Yesterday was wash day for me. I had let my laundry accumulate until I had two large loads to do, so I got busy and washed and dried everything and now it is all put away!
I drove on to the Park later and saw the gopher tortoise meandering around, but very few people were out. It was such a pretty day, I expected the place to be full. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
What does God promise to those who obey?
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice
of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join
in with scoffers. But they delight in doing everything
the Lord wants; day and hight they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing
fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither,
and in all they do, they prosper.
Obedience paves the way for fruitfulness. When we obey, we have
a clear conscience and uninterrupted fellowship with the Lord.
We honor other people and stay out of conflict. We give our
energies to things that last and do not waste time in unprofitable ways.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
