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! Rain is dripping off the roof and it is overcast and gloomy, just like yesterday. But, the good news is, the weather will be great for this weekend for the Gasparilla parade and festivities. I have never been to that parade and have no desire to go. Too much noise from the pirate's guns and cannons from the ship! Let Tampa have it!

Yesterday my PC was not working. I could not connect to the internet, so that's why the blog did not get sent. I kept fooling around and finally found the problem and got connected again, However, I have left a message for my computer man and I will have him go over it to fix any issues.

I had gone to the Publix to stock up on groceries because of the expected rain, and got everything on my list except paper goods that I needed. I make a list and then don't read it. Sigh.

After the groceries were put away, I went over to the Library, and returned some books and checked out some more. The walker I am using is great for storing stuff in the bag that is attached, so I had no problem with carrying the books to the car, and loading and unloading the walker  which folds and fits right behind the front seats. Then I drove to the park on a warm, lazy afternoon. The sun was hot and a few people were out enjoying the exercise and beauties of nature. I saw a very large great blue heron on the banks near the weir. 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,
