Faith brings Joy

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! So far, we have sunshine and a few clouds, so hopefully, the rain will hold off until my handy man gets through with the work he planned to do.

I am blessed to have people who come in and take care of cleaning, outside work, and anything else that needs to be done! However, that still leaves ironing, but while I grumble about it, it only takes about fifteen minutes!

I visited the park yesterday, but all was quiet. It had just rained, so puddles were all over, and the only birds I saw, were a great white heron, right beside an anhinga on the weir. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 5:1-5

Therefore, since we have been made right in God's
sight by faith, we have peace with God because of
what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because
of out faith, Christ has brought us into this place of
highest privilege where we now stand, and we confidently
and joyfully look forward to sharing God's Glory.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials,
for we know that they are good for us--they help us to learn
to endure. And endurance develops strength of character
in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation
of salvation . And this expectation will not disappoint us.
For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has
 given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

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

Love and hugs,
