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! It is still a little cool in the mornings, and last night, or I should say, early this morning I pulled a warm cover up because the light blanket and sheet I had were not warm enough for me. But the sun is shining and it is almost up to seventy outdoors. Inside, it is a little cooler. The weather is actually just perfect!
Well, I heard from a young cousin I never knew I had until last year when he started looking up his ancestry, and uncovered a lot of cousins, seconds and once or twice removed, etc; from my father's side of the family. He, Adam, and his wife are coming across the pond, as he calls it, to visit the states the last of this month and I am hoping to meet with them when they come from England. I wish he had Skype, so we could be talking, but he doesn't, so I will have to wait. He uncovered cousins in CA. and all over, so he did a good thing, which took a lot of time on his part.
Except for being cleaned, my house is back to normal, after the boys left this weekend. But my ladies come tomorrow and will get everything back to normal in short order. Unfortunately, there is an anole roaming around, and Cheryl does not like them! Matthew and Daryl tried to catch him in the living room, but he got away and made his way into my bedroom where I almost trapped him on the window last night. I gave him a good talking to, telling him not to put his sticky feet on my face while I slept!!
My amaryllis are still blooming and I have one more bulb coming up. I think all the rain caused them to really be outstanding this year, since they did not bloom last year. They are striped red and white...not the prettiest kind, but very nice, anyway.. The yard men did not come until about noon yesterday, and they did not bother the lilies, so that is good.
I visited the Park Sunday after church, and it was packed! There were only two or three parking spaces left out of the whole parking area, with more cars coming in as I left. There are baby gators to be seen, along with the gopher tortoises. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
1 John 4:16-21
We know how much God loves us, and we
have put our trust in him.
God is love and all who live in love live
in God and God lives in them. And as we live in
God our love grows more perfect. Se we will not
be afraid on the day of judgment , but we can
face him with confidence because we are like
Christ here in this world.
If someone says, "I love God," but hates a Christian
brother or sister, that person is a liar;, for if we don't
love people we can see, how can we love God, whom
we have not seen? And God himself has commanded
that we must love not only him, but our Christian
brothers and sisters, too.
I always give thanks for you. remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
