Roamin' thru Romans

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! We have another beautiful sunshiny day, with some white puffy clouds and a cool breeze blowing. One more in our spring days!

I was watching a squirrel in the oak tree, while I was having my morning quiet time. He was very still, which is unusual, but I caught a glimpse of something moving in the neighbor's yard, and realized it was one of the stray cats that roam the neighborhood. I think the squirrel was aware of the cat's presence and decided to stay very still. Unusual for a squirrel! Just one of life's little dramas...

I had an appointment with my podiatrist yesterday and there were only a couple other patients besides me which is pretty unusual. Maybe some of the winter visitors have gone home. After I finished there, I had a hankerin' for a frosted lemonade, so I headed for Chick-fil-a and soon had one. I drove on to the park, which was not very crowded; saw one lone ibis enjoying a grub, and then saw the smaller brown gopher tortoise. After that I took off the straw and enjoyed some of my frosted lemonade! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 9-13

Don't just pretend that you love others. Really love them.
Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love
each other with genuine affection, and take delight in
honoring each other. Never be lazy in your work, but serve
the Lord enthusiastically.

Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble,
and always be prayerful. When God's children are in need,
be the one to help them out. And get into the habit of having
guests home for dinner or, if they need lodging, for the night.

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

Love and hugs,
