Cruisin' thru Colossians

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! I took the day off yesterday, because of an early appointment at the Pierce Clinic, and today I have a late start because of a restless night. I did not sleep well, Maybe the full moon has something to do with it, but now, I am up and moving and ready to get a few things done while the sun is shining and before the rain comes.

My cleaning ladies were here and wanted to know what I had done that caused me to wear a collar around my neck. I told them about the adjustment at the clinic, and that I had to wear it for 3-4 hours. I could hardly wait to get it off because it was so stiff and uncomfortable! I had an intern, Kevin, before Dr. Pierce came in and he complimented me on my  name and knew it was a flower. That is fairly unusual for someone to know that. Anyway, hopefully, the adjustment will do some good.

We got some rain yesterday late, and today the wind is blowing and lots of clouds are around. There was water dripping off the roof this morning, so it might have rained a little last night.I took a drive over to the Park after I left the clinic. All was quiet and peaceful, except for a class of kids having a good time learning a lot about nature and animals. I saw one lone ibis in the canal where the water is very low and a turtle sunning on the bank of the weir, but very few people were there. But, as always, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Colossians 3:12-17

Since God chose you to be the holy people
whom he loves, you must clothe yourselves
with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility,
gentleness, and patience. You must make allowance
for each other's faults and forgive the person who
offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you,
so you must forgive others. And the most important
piece of clothing you must wear is love. Love is
what binds us all together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in
your hearts. For as members of one body you are
called to live in peace. And always be thankful.

Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, live
in your hearts and make you wise. Use his words
to teach and counsel each other. Sing psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs to God with
thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, let
it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus, all
the while giving thanks through him to God the Father.

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

Love and hugs,
