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! Cool nights and warm days continue with no rain expected for at least this week. This is not really good news, because this is the dry time of year and a little rain would help maybe just once a week. Not complaining, just wishing..
We had another good crowd at church yesterday. I thought maybe last week that the winter visitors had all left, but it seems like new people keep coming. Someone told me there were thirty people in the inquirer's class who are joining the church;. this is great! and I see more and more younger people coming, which is also great! I had to wait in the parking lot for about fifteen minutes before I could get in a parking space, but Pastor Kevin was fired up and preached a little over time...always worth listening to!
I did a little shopping over the weekend and visited the Park. Depending on the time of day, it is usually busy with visitors enjoying the lovely weather. Everything has greened up and looks so springlike..just like around the neighborhood. I passed one jacaranda tree in full bloom and it was so gorgeous! I love the lavender blooms! I checked and I I have three amaryllis which have bloomed out and about three left with one bud coming up! I am so happy that they bloomed this year! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O God, look with favor upon the king,
Have mercy on the one you have anointed.
A single day in your courts is better than
a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house
of my God than live the good life in the house
of the wicked.
For the Lord God is our light and protector.
He gives us grace and glory.
No good thing will the Lord withhold from
those who do what is right.
O Lord Almighty,
happy are those who trust in you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
