Teaching About Money and Possessions

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 did not get the rain predicted yesterday evening, but I could hear the thunder from far off, so someone got wet.When I stepped out to get the paper, it was already very warm, so this will be another nineties day.

The closet is nearly cleaned out of shoes, now, and I found some I don't even remember buying. Some barely worn. But only one pair that is still wearable as far as feeling comfy on my feet.Cheryl looked them over and discovered she could wear three pairs of flip-flops, which she always prefers, so I told her to take them. I was glad for her to have them.

I made a quick trip to Wendy's for a small salad, after Cheryl had called to say they were running about an hour late in cleaning, and had a little fun with the cashier. He always tries to anticipate what someone will give him in cash and likes to have the correct change waiting. I like to fool him, and he gave me a dollar change before he quickly snatched it back realizing I only needed a few cents back.

After the girls left, I went over to the Park where I saw three little flags stuck up by the gopher hole and Mr. gopher tortoise was within the flagged area,, either coming or going. I also saw an egret with long neck gracefully bent toward the water as he intently looked at his lunch in the lake. Typical Florida scenery! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 12:27-31
Look at the lilies and how they grow.
They don't work or make their clothing,
yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed
as beautifully as they are. And if God cares
so wonderfully for flowers that are here today
and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely
care for you? You have so little faith! And don't
worry about food---what to eat and drink. Don't
worry whether God will provide it for you. These
things dominate the thoughts of most people,
but your Father already knows your needs. He will give
you all you need from day to day if you make
the Kingdom of God your primary concern.

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

Love and hugs,
