Love for Enemies

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 sunshine and warm breezes so far, but like yesterday,when the storms came in at noon, the same thing may happen today.

When the cleaning friends came in the early afternoon, it had just finished coming down hard, and they had already been soaked. But,. it was a good day for staying home, which I did. I was hoping to watch a pitching duel between the Rays Archer and the Tigers Verlander, but it was not on Sun Sports, so I listened through the static on the radio, and found out later from a friend that the game was on the cable channel. Too late! I was disappointed.

My Bird-of-Paradise plant really likes the rain. It has at least three brilliant blooms on it, now. I don't think the birds like it, because they don't seem to go near it.But they have plenty of seeds to eat from the podacarpus hedge.

Well, I called the codes Dept. of the city about the wasp nest next door and the codes inspector should be out in 3-5 days. Hopefully, they will be eradicated, so it will be safe to go back to the fence soon. I have never done that before, (called the code dept.) so I will see how it works.

Cheryl found a baby gecko while she was cleaning yesterday, but it was too fast for her to catch, so I have another one in the house some place. Sigh. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 7:27-31
But if you are willing to listen, I say, love
your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.
Pray for the happiness of those who curse you.
Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you
on one cheek, turn the other cheek. If someone
demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give
what you have to anyone who asks you for it ,
and when things are taken away from you, don't
try to get them back. Do for others as you would
like them to do for you.

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

Love and hugs,
