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 had no rain yesterday and today is sunshiny and a slight breeze is blowing. Also, the temp has gone down some, so fall is really here! It's 75 right now, and while that is not as cool as a lot of northern areas, still it is better than the eighties where the mornings have been!
Since it did not rain, I ran some errands I needed to do, including the Post office. My mail does not come to my house until about 6 in the evening, so sometimes I forget to get it in until around 8. Maybe because the P.O. is in the red. Email is much quicker, but it is always nice to received a written note or letter.
I stopped in at the park and saw the light brown gopher tortoise at the entrance to his tunnel and in the canal there were about three roseate spoonbills. So pretty! They are spots of beauty in the green of the foliage and the dark water. BTW, the canal is still up from all the rain. It has not drained out yet! And we still have mama duck and her grown kids waddling around in the yards and gutter water on this street. I don't know at what point in their growth, they go their separate ways, but she is still watchful and they are as big as she is. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Paul's Prayer For Spiritual Empowering
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan,
I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator
of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from
his glorious, unlimited resources, he will give you
mighty, inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I
pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your
hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep
into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have
the power to understand , as all God's people should,
how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love
really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though
it is so great you will never fully understand it .
Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and
power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within
us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would
ever dare to ask or hope . May he be given glory in the
church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through
endless ages. Amen.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
