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! It is rather dark now and rain is still dripping off the roof. Shortly after I got out of bed I heard thunder and sure enough, we had a loud and wet thunderstorm already. And it looks like more rain is in store. At least it keeps the temp. down a few degrees!

While my ladies were cleaning yesterday afternoon, I watched the horrible news about the TV anchor and photog. getting shot and killed on live TV. And the director seriously wounded. Someone needed to get that man the mental help he needed before this all happened. I prayed for those left behind.

Afterwards, I made another trip to CVS and purchased a lithium battery for my bathroom scales. They last over a year or more.I also found a LED light bulb which I am hoping will solve the problem of a burned out porch light for a long time to come. The package says 25,000 hours...humm, I don't know if I have 25,000 hours left. Someone figure out how long that is, please.

Then I went to the library, returned and checked out more books, then on to the park where two big, brown, gopher tortoises were munching and wandering about, but not many people. Then home to see lots of ibis and an egret at Lynch Lake. 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,
