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! It is overcast and from the looks of radar a large rainstorm is lurking right off shore. But the last I heard, it seems to disappear as it reaches land.

But that does not stop the yard crew who are working right now. I had asked them to trim the azaleas, but will not be disappointed if they don't do it today, since I know they want to finish up their yards before the rain.

I hope everybody enjoyed the 4th of July holiday! I had a quiet one at home until evening when all the fireworks in the neighborhood started going off. The booms did not end until after midnight. And the next day, I saw the debris left for someone else to clean up , in some areas.  Tsk.

I did get over to the park, and saw the lighter brown gopher tortoise, several ibis and egrets poking around in the canal. Not too many people out, though, but probably the beaches were crowded! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Galatians 5:22-26
But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce
this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Here there is no conflict with the law.

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions
and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified
them there. If we are living now by the Holy Spirit, let us
follow the Holy Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.
Let us not become conceited, or irritate one another, or
be jealous of one another.

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

Love and hugs,
