Roamin' thru Romans

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! Sure enough! I put the winter blanket back on the bed last night and it felt good! We didn't get as cold as was predicted, but still the house cooled down and my long sleeved pj's felt just warm and cozy. We have red flag warnings about the extremely dry air today, which means fire chances are very high. Fortunately, the weather will warm up tomorrow and the humidity will return.

I had a call from my cleaning friend this morning, wanting to change my day from tomorrow to today because she will be working alone since Kim is baby sitting her two grandkids. Since I will be at the dentist when she comes, she knows how to get in, so she will have the house to herself. My yard guys did not come yesterday, so I am hoping for them to show up today, since the porch is piled with leaves after the strong winds of yesterday and Sunday. I swept a path clear from the front door to the walk, so leaves would not get tracked in, but this is difficult because of my imbalance. (Physical, not mental!)

I went to CVS yesterday to pick up some OJ and a few other things and steered clear of the pharmacy area because several people were waiting to get into the clinic and I could hear coughing. I know a lot of that is allergies, but I did not want to be exposed..

I watched DWTS last night and was amazed at the deaf model who danced so well without being able to hear a thing! He is so good, I really hope he wins! Some of the so called "stars" are definitely not. I never even heard of a lot of them!

Lots of ducks, and ibis were gathered around Lynch Lake when I drove around it, and the Park was full of cars...some were from out of state...NY, NC, Oh, etc, but a lot were from Fl. Since it is spring break time here, and the weather was nice, people were taking advantage of it. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Romans 5:1-5
Therefore, since we have been made right
in God's sight, by faith, we have peace with
God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord
has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ
has brought us into this place of highest
privilege where we now stand, and we con-
fidently and joyfully look forward to sharing
God's glory.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems
and trials, for we know that they are good for
us----they help us learn to endure. And endurance
 develops strength of character in us, and character
strengthens our confident expectation of
salvation. And this expectation will not dis-
appoint us. For we know how dearly God loves
us because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill
our hearts with his love.

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

Love and hugs,
