Will of God

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!Well, the prediction that strong winds would be moving through last night proved to be premature. Everything was quiet , but I see the trees and shrubs moving now, and the last I heard, was that the wind would pick up today, and then it would really turn cold. I am definitely not looking forward to it!

I think the oak trees have just about finished shedding their leaves. I don't see any drifting past my window, but quite a few are stuck in the needle leaves of the podacarpus hedge which the neighbors planted many years ago.I think it is about time for them to be raked up; the leaves, that is.

I finished a book yesterday and need to make another trip to the Library. I also did laundry yesterday which accumulates pretty fast, even though I am only one person. I watched a flock of redwing blackbirds pecking around the neighbor's yard and then they all flew off. I had not seen a flock of them in a couple years. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Does God really have a plan for my life?

Psalm 139:3
You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest.
Every moment you know where I am.

Psalm 32:8
The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway
for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.

God has a plan for our lives. It is not an unthinking, automated
script that we must follow. It is a journey with various destinations
and appointments and a great deal of freedom as to the pace and
scope of the travel. God's plan for us will always have a sense of
mystery, but we can be certain that he will guide us as long as we
rely on his leading.

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

Love and hugs,
