The Whole Armor

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! After all the wind, and thunder last night, we did not get a drop of rain! Somebody close by did, I'm sure, but we were not favored. Maybe today. However, I read a story yesterday about a farmer in CA who may lose his farm because of the drought. His well has to take care of irrigation and the family needs, and is about to run dry, so we are in a lot better shape that those folks.

There is a tree truck sitting in front of my house that has been there for a couple hours, and as far as I can tell, they have not done any work in that time. I know that my trees are hanging over the phone  and street light lines, but I thought they only worked on power lines. Hm. Maybe I will be bold and go out and ask what is going on...

I am staying up too late these nights because of the fascination with all the new cousins once or twice removed that have been discovered from a cousin in England who has been uncovering ancestors and relatives I did not know I have. I am so glad he started this project! It is unusual for someone so young to be interested in the past, but more power to Adam!

We had a good crowd at church yesterday. Seems like more and more people are drawn to Faith Covenant and this is good. Pastor Kevin preaches a powerful message each Sunday, which gives a lot to chew on throughout the week.

After church I took a ride through the park and saw lots of people out enjoying the beautiful weather. Squirrels were getting leftovers, but I only saw one anhinga and no other birds or water fowl. But, God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ephesians 6:15-20
So be careful how you live, not as fools but
as those who are wise. Make the most of every
opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Don't
act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants
you to do. Don't be drunk with wine, because that will
ruin your life. Instead, let the Holy Spirit fill and
control you. Then you will sing psalms and hymns
and spiritual songs among your selves, making
music to the Lord in your hearts. And you will always give
thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of
our Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Love and hugs,
