My Morning Prayer

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 a touch of fall this morning! Low humidity and lots of sunshine. When I opened the door I was surprised at the coolness of the air! It felt so good! We also had nice weather this weekend after the remnants of Matthew moved off.

My front yard is not too bad. Brian moved a large dead branch out of the front into the side yard. Hopefully the yard crew will cut it up and put it in the dumpster. There are also small twigs and stuff but nothing major. The wind gusts did not seem to be that high around here. Thank God for that!

Well, I shopped at Trader Joe's last week and loaded up on pumpkin stuff. Frozen waffles, frozen pumpkin tarts, a jar of Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter and Brian brought me pumpkin Joe' Joe's; cookies with pumpkin cream in the middle, and Pumpkin soup! I haven't baked the pumpkin rolls yet, but may get that done today! Yum!

I did not watch the debate last night, because the Packers were playing and I seldom get to see them! And they won over the Giants! Yay! Go Packers!

I drove around Lynch Lake on the way to church yesterday and there was a roseate spoonbill and also a wood stork! Two beautiful birds, but very different! God is good!

My Morning Prayer

"Oh, God, for another day, for another morning,
for another hour, for another minute, for another chance
to live and serve Thee, I am truly grateful."
Do Thou this day free me
 from all fear of the future
 from all bitterness toward anyone,
 From all bitterness toward anyone,
 from all cowardice in face of danger
 from all laziness in face of work,
 from all failure before opportunity
 from all weakness when Thy power is
   at hand.

But fill me
 with Love that knows no barrier
 with Sympathy that reaches all
 with Courage that cannot be shaken
 with Faith strong enough for darkness,
 with Strength sufficient for my tasks,
 with Loyalty to Thy Kingdom Goal,
 with Power to lift me to Thee.

Be thou with me for another day and use me as Thou wilt
for Christ's sake, I pray.

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

Love and hugs,
