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 day with lots of sun and breezes and temps in the low seventies, but a bit higher than yesterday. A beautiful day in the neighborhood!

While I was on the computer yesterday, my yard crew came. I thought I heard them, but they did not mow, because it is not necessary in the cooler weather when the grass does not grow so fast. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had blown off the acorns and brought the dumpster back up. Of course, the acorns were falling as they were being blown off, but that is to be expected this time of year!

After my ironing, I decided to go for an outing. I had been curious about the boarding up of the windows at the new Sav-A-Lot store at Town Plaza, thinking they had decided not to open it after all, but even though the plywood was still over the windows, the front door was open and it looked like work was going on inside, so maybe they just wanted to keep prying eyes out...

Anyway, I went on to the park and saw quite a few cars there, with people enjoying the gorgeous weather and the boardwalk. I saw an anhinga with wings folded and the usual squirrels dashing across the road. It was peaceful, shady and serene. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Psalm 90:12
Teach us to make the most of our time, so we may grow in wisdom.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-11
 There is a time for everything, a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time
to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a
time to laugh..A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to
scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace
and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a
time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time
to love and a time to hate. A time to war and a time for peace.
What do people really get for all their hard work?I have thought
about this in connection with the various kinds of work God has
given people to do. God has made everything beautiful for its own
time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so,
people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning
to end.
Valuing time begins with seeing it from God's perspective. When we do
this, we learn that there is always time for accomplishing God's plans for
our lives.

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

Love and hugs,
