Living by the Spirit's Power

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 had an overcast day Sunday, but today the sun has been shining, and the puffy white clouds are giving it some competition. It is still a bit chilly to me, but the heat is not on, so I just dress warmly in the house.

The yard crew has been and gone, and they enjoy the cool weather. I noticed they were wearing shorts today and long sleeves, so while the legs must stay warm, the arms need cover. The front porch was covered with leaves, which are really falling now, so for a little while, at least, it will be free from leaves...five minutes, maybe?

On my way back from church yesterday, I drove by Lynch Lake and saw a huge flock of ibis with one lone wood stork in the crowd, all crowding around one lady tossing out bread crumbs. I think the wood stork likes the company of the ibises, because I have seen him with them on the ground pecking around. While the ibis look very graceful when flying, the wood stork looks awkward with his long legs and long beak. Guess God made him that way for a purpose!

I drove to the Park after church and it had quite a few people out enjoying the overcast, but pleasant day. Lots of cars were parked, but not many people in sight, so they must have been on the boardwalk.God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Galatians 5:22,23
But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives,
he will produce this kind of fruit in us ; love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Here there is no conflict with the law.

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

Love and hugs
