So we are open yet today as this is my last weekend of being open. What am I doing, but what you can see in the picture but watering? It is extremely hot and humid, so want the plants to continue to look nice this is what I am doing most of the day. Had gardeners yesterday but I understand today is too warm for today. I will be open Monday, Tuesday and Wed. Closed on the 4th. I will be around on the 5th, and a little on the 6th if you want to come and get some beautiful plants that we have. call before coming 641-794-3337 as we have a couple of errands on Friday to do. Saturday probably working at home as that work has piled up.
Devotion today is from Isaiah 63:7 I will recount the loving kindnesses of the Lord and the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, according to all that the Lord has bestowed on us, and the great goodness to the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His mercy and according to the multitude of His loving kindnesses.
One of the ways Vine's expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words defines, praise, is telling a tale or a narration. In other words praising God is simple recounting or telling aloud the great things He has done. Praise is beautiful because it magnifies the goodness of God and strengthens us and all those who hear us, enabling us to deal with some of the more unpleasant things in life.
If we are doing nothing more than sitting at lunch with a friend and speaking about some wonderful things, God has done with gratitude in our hears, we are praising Him. In fact, the Bible says God like those conversations, and when He hears them. He gets out His book of remembrance and records them. He does not record our murmuring, grumbling or complaining, but He records the words we speak when praise in on our lips. Talk to someone today about something good Gas Has done for you.
Lord I am thankful that my relationship with You is not a complicated list of religious rituals. I can praise You simply by telling others about Your goodness. Thank You for Your blessings in my life and I will praise You all day long. In your name we pray AMEN
