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! Blue skies, sunshine, and slightly cooler temps mean it is a beautiful day! Although it will be close to ninety again later on, at least we can enjoy a taste of fall in the mornings.
Yesterday I took a trip to the Library to return books and check out more. Children were selecting books and using the computers and adults were using the ones for them, and some were looking for film tapes they had not seen, but still some were reading. Way back when I was in school, a library had audio-visual, and books and that was about it. Ah, times have changed.
Afterwards, I visited Sawgrass and noticed that the water in the canal was still up. A flock of ibis was busy swarming over a berm and the squirrels were streaking across the road and up the trees as fast as they could go! Then I took a trip out to Weedon Island. I saw an osprey in the very top of a dead tree, but the only activity on the road was me. There were some people at the kayak rental and several cars parked at the end, where several people were fishing from the pier. I noticed something unusual also; the overflow areas were full with ducks and ibis splashing around in the water. I have never seen water in these places before. I guess that is what all the rain has done. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love?
Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble
or calamity, or are persecuted, or are hungry, or are
in danger or are threatened with death? (Even the
Scriptures say, "For your sake we are killed every day;
we are being slaughtered like sheep.") No, despite all
these things, overwhelming victory is ours, through Christ
who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us
from his love. Death can't and life can't. The angels can't
and the demons can't. Our fears for today , our worries
about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep
God's love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in
the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to
separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ
Jesus our Lord.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
