Love for Enemies

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 a thick fog that is slowly disappearing , but that makes the chilly temps more noticeable. Actually, this is the first foggy day I can remember in a long time. We usually do have them in the winter, but it is not winter just yet! But the sun will soon peek through and burn it off. In the meantime, all sound is muted and nice.

My yard guys came in the morning, and once again, blew off the leaves and mowed. But, of course, the leaves are back again and still falling. They forgot to bring my dumpster up, but I was able to pull it back without too much difficulty.

After they left, I had lunch and did some shopping, so I am a little caught up, but have a long ways to go, yet. Then I drove to the Park, which was crowded with people, and saw several black turtles sunning on the bank of the weir. Further down, a great blue heron was in the canal, which is down to a trickle, and an egret and a couple ibis were busy toward the second bridge.  God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 7:27-31
But if you are willing to listen, I say, love
your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.
Pray for the happiness of those who curse
you. Pray for those who hurt you. IF someone
slaps you on the cheek, turn the other cheek.
If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt
also. Give what you have to anyone who asks
you for it, and when things are taken away from
you  don't try to get them back. Do for others as
you would like them to do for you.

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

Love and hugs,
