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! I am getting a late start this morning, but hope to catch up before the predicted rain showers start. We have another in the string of dry, sunny days that we have had for a month!
My lawn crew have already come and gone, and brought the dumpster back up and for that I am grateful. I did not think they would come today, but I guess the grass has started to grow again. My handy man is coming tomorrow to power wash the flat roof and then coat it with the rainproof coating that is already on it. It needs to be applied about once a year or so.. This is one time I hope it does not rain!
We heard a good sermon yesterday and attendance was down just a little bit from Easter, which is to be expected, but it was good to see all the friends and worship with music. I drove to the park afterwards and saw a beautiful egret with graceful, bent neck looking at something in the water. Then a couple ibis were pecking around the canal. I notice jacaranda trees are now blooming...so pretty with the lavender blossoms! After that the Royal Poinciana trees will bloom. There is always a lot of color waiting for me to notice! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Judas (not Judas Iscariot, but the other disciple with that name)
said to him, "Lord, why are you going to reveal yourself only to
us and not to the world at large?
Jesus replied, "All those who love me will do what I say. My Father
will love them, and we will come to them and live with them. Anyone
who doesn't love me will not do what I say. And, remember, my words
are not my own. This message is from the Father who sent me. I am
telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the
Father sends the Counselor as my representative---and by the Counselor,
I mean the Holy Spirit---he will teach you everything and will remind you
of everything I myself have told you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
