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! Lots of sunshine this morning with puffy clouds drifting across the sky...beautiful!
After the rain yesterday morning, I headed out to gas up the van. On the way, I drove into the park and there on the bank in front of the weir was the large gator sunning himself. On the other side of the canal was a graceful white heron. Typical Florida. Further down, I noticed that two trees had collapsed and fallen into the canal. One was smaller near the bridge and the other was very large and brushing the water. Neither one was blocking the flow. Their roots must have gotten too wet and caused them to fall.
We have so many mockingbirds chirping around here, I get an earful whenever I go outside. I also heard a cardinal the other day, but did not see him. The crows I can do without, as their call is strident and loud! But it takes all kinds, like the osprey I saw on the wire around Lynch Lake the other day. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Psalm 139:1-6. 23,24
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my every thought when far away.
You chart the path ahead of me
and tell me where to stop and rest.
Every moment you know where I am.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You both precede and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to know!
Search me, O God, and know my heart.
Test me and know my thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
