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 a little warmer today and we have lots of sunshine, so before the cold comes again this weekend, we will get up to the high seventies again...my kind of weather!
Well, there was a pick up fail yesterday. I called this morning to report that my recycle bin did not get emptied, and, of course, with all the Christmas stuff still in it, it is full--so full that the lid won't shut all the way. I was assured that someone would come today and see that it gets emptied. Seems odd that the garbage man came and pulled the dumpster down and took care of it, but the recycle guy did not. Oh, well, I am sure it will be taken care of.
My outside lights will be taken down later today, and some of the leaves will be raked up, but they are still falling, so this is not a one time job! My handy man called and said he would come. I am blessed to have him.
I saw some photos of otters in a lake in CA. this morning. on Facebook, taken by my cousin. It has been a long time since I saw any at Sawgrass Park, but one year when Matthew was here, we watched and followed one swimming all the way to the second bridge! They are such fun to watch! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
(King Nebuchadnezzar had built a giant gold statue, and issued a decree that everyone should bow down and worship it. The following is Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego's response.)
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied, " O Nebuchadnezzar, we
do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the
blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will
rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn't ,
Your Majesty can be sure that we will never serve your gods or worship
the gold statue you have set up."
(They realized that God might have answered their faith by allowing the flames to consume them, but they still had great faith;. a reminder that God sometimes answers prayers in His way and not ours.)
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
