Roamin' thru Romans

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! No sunshine yet today,instead there is rain dripping off the roof. The sky was overcast when I had my breakfast, but now, I see the rain falling. But that's okay because it keeps the temp. down.

I ran some errands yesterday, including grocery shopping. It was one of those times when shopping at Publix was not a pleasure. Before I even got in the store, a handicap police guy stopped and told me something, I had to go to his suv to hear what he said. I had put the sunscreen up in the windshield and he said he could not see the handicap hangar. So I told him it was there and pulled it out and showed him. I hung it back and he circled around and stopped in front this time. and said he could not see it. So I had to unlock the car and stick it down the front of the shield to satisfy him. Sheesh!! It did nothing for my mood!

So I went on to do my shopping and discovered that they are changing groceries around. I had my list with me and got what was on the list, except for one item, which was not in its usual place. I saw a lady with a Publix pin on her shirt and asked her, so she went on a hunt and found the item way back on the side where I had already been. Well, at least I got my exercise, by walking the whole store back and forth. I was glad to get home, only to find the city had come by and left the big blue recycle dumpster on the driveway. It is very cumbersome, and I had a difficult time dragging it back to where the regular dumpster is. I don't even think they will start picking up until July and then I will have to figure out how to get it down to the curb.Oh, well, life is full of challenges!

I saw egrets and a wood stork at Lynch Lake as I drove by. They were in the shade, so maybe birds get hot, too. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 5:1-5

Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight
by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ
our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has
brought us into this place of highest privilege where we now
stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to
sharing God's glory.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials,
for we know that they are good for us--they help us learn
to endure. And endurance develops strength of character
in us and character strengthens our  confident expectation
of salvation. And this expectation will not disappoint us.
For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has
given us the Holy Spirit  to fill  our hearts with his love.

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

Love and hugs,
