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! We have lots of clouds and not much sun today. I don't know if it is because of Matthew, or just overcast. I watched the weather forecast and it looks like Jamaica is getting hit hard and perhaps the east coast, but it is so powerful that some of the clouds could be coming this way. People in its path need lots of prayer!
We had a good sermon again yesterday from Pastor Kevin's series on Ecclesiastes. Enjoy yourself! That was the theme . Then, as is usual on the first of the month, we also took communion, which is a meaningful time. We had pretty good attendance, and I had to wait for a handicap space to open up before I was able to get into church.
After leaving church. I had to take a slight detour because of a serious accident at 62nd and 4th St. I don't know if anyone was hurt, but I saw a young lady sitting in the shade of the phone box. so I am sure she was shaken up. I prayed for all concerned including first responders.
Saturday on my way to an appointment, I rounded Lynch Lake and saw the beautiful roseate spoonbill all by itself pecking away along the bank. I love those pinks! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How does God respond to my commitment to integrity?
The Lord rewarded me for doing right; he compensated me because
of my innocence. For I have kept the way of the Lord; I have not turned
from my God to follow evil. For all his laws are constantly before me; I have
never abandoned his principles. I am blameless before God. I have kept
myself from sin. The Lord rewarded me for doing right, because of the
innocence of my hands in his sight. To the faithful you show yourself
faithful, to those with integrity, you show integrity.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
