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! Still cool temps this morning, but like yesterday it will warm up and I actually had a window open in the afternoon. That was on the south side of the house in the kitchen where it is always warm.

After doing laundry, I did some grocery shopping and picked out some lovely bananas, and yes, I still get slightly green bananas...not too old to let them ripen!

I also took a drive to the park, which was very crowded with lots of people from out of state, I saw a lot of New York tags and since it was below freezing there, I know they must have been enjoying the sun!

Well I thought there would be no blog today, because I had drain problems in the shower. I joined HomeServ last year and pay very little monthly to them for several things that could go wrong in the house and it paid off. I called yesterday, was contacted by a plumber 5 minutes later and he came out at 9, and cleaned out the shower drain. He was here for about 20 minutes and it did not cost me anything! Yay for HomeServ! I almost forgot to mention that the plumber reminded me of Ben Zobrist; he looked a lot like him. For those of you who don't know, Ben  is a former Rays player who got traded to KC, and a fine man!

Coming home from shopping, I drove by Lynch Lake and saw 2 wood storks right by the street looking very depressed. They always look sad with their necks all drawn up and even though they were in a crowd of ibis, they were not happy. But 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 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 others 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, Amaryllis
