Easin' thru Ephesians

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! The sun is shining unlike yesterday at this time when we were under a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch! We had a lot of hard rain, but fortunately, no tornados. Then in the afternoon it cleared off and the next few days are supposed to be clear and cool! Our last days of winter, maybe.

Cheryl and Kim, my cleaning ladies came and said they did not get too wet going into their first house job and by the time they got here, the rain had stopped. So they worked hard and got the house spic and span. Since I am their last customer for the day, all they have to do is go across the street and they are home!

Well another familiar face is retiring from a local TV station. Chip Carter, one of my favorite sports reporters, is doing his last broadcast tomorrow. Seems like he is too young to retire.Former coach, Jon Gruden, and his wife stopped in to say goodbye to him and wish him well. It might be Tony Dungy next, or maybe Derek Jeter, who has a mansion in Tampa. We have several well known sports figures living in the area.

I saw squirrels out after the storm and the birds were busy making up for lost time securing berries and what not that they could not gather during the rain, so God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Living by the Spirit's Power

Ephesians 5:12-20
So be careful how you live, not as fools, but
as those who are wise. Make the most of
every opportunity for doing good in these
evil days. Don't act thoughtlessly, but try to
understand what the Lord wants you to do.
Don't be drunk with wine, because that will
ruin your life. Instead, let the Holy Spirit  fill
and control you. Then you will sing psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves
making music to the Lord in your hearts. And
you will always give thanks for everything to
God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Love and hugs,
