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! Once again we had a foggy morning, but not so much here. Rain is still predicted for maybe this afternoon, but there was a dark cloud hanging right over the house when I came home yesterday and nothing happened, so...
I was praying for the families of the Marines who went down in the helicopter crash at Eglin Field in the fog. The fog is hampering the search for the copter and or bodies, so far. I immediately thought of my great niece who is stationed at Eglin in the Air Force.Such a tragedy.
I did a little shopping yesterday, and noticed the 9th St, construction has crept further down, so it is almost to the entrance of CVS and Publix that I use. Oh, well, it will be much better when they finish, hopefully. There is always construction going on someplace in the city!
I drove through the Park, and saw a beautiful white heron sticking his head up from the canal, and several ibis were pecking along the berm. Lots of people were out and about, some from out of town, but many locals. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
What do people really get for all their hard work? I have
thought about this in connection with the various kinds of
work God has given people to do. God has made everything
beautiful in its own time. He has planted eternity in the human
heart, but even so , people cannot see the whole scope of God's
work from the beginning to end. So I concluded that there is
nothing better for people than to be happy and to enjoy themselves
as long as they can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy
the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.
And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added
to it or taken from it. God's purpose in this is that people should
fear him. Whatever exists today and whatever will exist in the future
has already existed in the past. For God calls each event back in its turn.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
