Thank God for this sunny shiny day! I am sure those in the south are thanking God for the sun as well. My sister is in North Carolina, and she has to wait until Friday to see if the cresting of the river by her house will cause any damage, but I have prayed a hedge of protection around them, and it looks like they will be fine. Enjoy the good weather as much as you can.

The fuchsia color of these flowers remind me of the depth and richness of God's love for us. They seem to hold their beauty no matter what comes their way, yet, they will fade. Jesus' love and compassion on those of us who have placed our trust in Him will never falter, fail or fade. We have a covenant, or very truly sincere promise from Him that He will never let go of our hands. We let go, but He never, ever will. Sometimes it may seem to us that He is distant, but God is not moved by our feelings. It can be that we have moved away from Him, but He remains constant!

"Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His Holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning." {Psalm 30:4-5} Thank God for His word, which also endures forever! Let's look at two words here. JOY COMES! That jumped off the page from me today. No matter what your circumstance, joy comes, it may seem late but it comes at the right time. JOY COMES!
