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! Apparently, it rained during the night, because when I retrieved the paper, everything was wet and water is still dripping off the roof occasionally. While it is still overcast, the weather man says the rain is over. Now we wait for the cold front to come through.

Well, sad news for the Rays, that Andrew Friedman is going to L. A. Dodgers, hopefully, they have a good replacement in Silverman. That's what happens in sports...players get traded and managers get fired or moved around. Not many players stick with one club like Derek Jeter did. Sigh.

I did not leave the house the afternoon the rains came, so I just stayed home and puttered around looking at all the stuff that needs to be cleaned out and donated or discarded. So much to do, so little time (and energy).

Last night as I was ready to go to bed I kept hearing the quack, quack, of the duck family.
I don't know what was wrong with them, but maybe the momma duck was alarmed about something. The babies are as big as she is now, so she is difficult to distinguish from her kids. Maybe I will see the group today and see that they are all right. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Corinthians 13:4-13
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous
or boastful or proud for rude. Love does not demand
its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps
no record of when it has been wronged. It is never
glad about injustice and rejoices whenever the truth
wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is
always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.
Love will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in
unknown languages and special knowledge will all
disappear. Now we know only a little and even the gift
of prophecy reveals little. But when the end comes, these
special gifts will all disappear.

It's like this: when I was a child, I spoke and thought and
reasoned as a child does. But when I grew up, I put away
childish things. Now we see things imperfectly as in a
poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect
clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but
then I will know everything completely, just as God knows
me now.

There are three things that will endure---faith, hope, and love--
and the greatest of these is love.

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

Love and hugs,
