I have a loveable, admirable -- a cherished 1st class lady -- that I/we pray each workday morning @ 9:30am
(Matthew 6: 9-13 vs) soothed our souls today...
I start by calling him Father - a Great Dad - in heaven; His name is high and to be honoured, and we are His children. I am thankful for such right standing... to occupy a place of privilege as Our Father invites us to spend time in prayer with Him.
Next, I pray that God's Kingdom, or rule, will become the norm on earth, over-riding and guiding human rules that are selfish and driven by greed and power.
I then turn to our own needs, knowing he supplies our basic human needs and I ask that He would forgive the wrong things that I/we have done. Deliver us from evil, praying for safe-keeping of my family and loved ones. Finally I return to reflect on God's goodness, his power and glory forever and ever, and over and over and over and over again.....
I'm reflecting and collecting a good many booklets and magazines from my office file cabinets as I ready myself for "EXIT" retirement. I purchased a gardening book/calendar... old but inspiring and charming.
The exotic plant that catches my eye this week is
|Platycerium - often epiphytic tropical Old World ferns|
