Paul's Prayer

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! Just another in the string of dry, sunshiny, warm days on this first day of spring! Perfect for all who love the outdoors, working in gardens, running, beachgoers,etc. Not so perfect for roofers, and construction people who have to contend with heat and sun. Sigh

I had a quiet day yesterday, just doing things around the house, but I drove over to the park in the late afternoon and saw a anhinga with wings outspread on one of the shrubs in the lake and an ibis perched in a tree overlooking the canal. There have been lots of artists lately, with easels set up along the sidewalk, painting all that they see. The scenery is beautiful and so typically Florida, that it worthwhile putting it all on canvas.

I read the Gopher tortoice sign more closely and it is warning people not to touch or try to feed them, plus a lot of other information about the endangered animal. It is really informative and hopefully, will be heeded. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 3:14-21
When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan,
I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of
everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his
glorious, unlimited resources, he will give you mighty
inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that
 Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts
as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into
the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the
power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide,
how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May
you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you
will never really understand it. Then you will be filled with
the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us,
 he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever
dare to ask or hope. May he be given glory in the church and
in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages.

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

Love and hugs,
