Sunrise! Clouds, Ducks, and Squirrel Happy New Year

 Sunrise. . . .don't pull the blankets (clouds) up!!!
 One lone duck met me and I gave her some food.
 Ahhh Sunrise!!!
 Coming back to bridge, I see more ducks.
 At least 2 at the Breakfast Club.
 Whoops, here come 3 more.
Good Grief, that didn't last long!

 Squirrel Portfolio.  There are 4 different squirrels.
 Two playing here.

. . . And more clouds. . . .

God is working things out for you even if you don’t feel it. Have faith and be Thankful, where Faith and Hope grows. . .Miracles Blossom

Egrets yesterday.

 Yesterday I heard a loud noise. . . went to the door and look what I saw.
 A Colony of Egrets. . .as you can see, I had to learn how to make the screen invisible
without taking it out of the window.
 I figured it out right away. . .here they are all over my front yard.
 and. . .then the back yard. . .. you can see their progression as they go east to west. . . .

We had just had a light rain shower, I would guess there were a million bugs.  They were having a time getting them and buzzing (talking) as they went.


One smile, can start a friendship. One word, can end a fight. One look, can save a relationship. One person can change your life.

Clouds and Ducks.. . . . what No Sunshine this morning. . . .

I've been leaving later in the mornings, giving the sun a chance to light my way. . .
However. . . .  See last picture!

This duck came to meet me.
One of my walker friends and I were talking and
he decided not to wait!
 A bit later an impatient little thing came . . . . Ok Ok
 Whoops, I didn't realize he had crossed the street. . . .here he comes back.
 Whew, made it. . .waddling across a busy street isn't good for your health sometimes.
However, it wasn't too busy this morning. . .
 Only 3 at the Duck Breakfast Club.
 As I walk away. . .there come two more. . . too late.
I arrive back home after my walk and what do I see. . . . . .
 The Sun decided to pull up her covers (clouds) and stay in bed this morning.
Good Grief!!!!

If you are going through difficult times keep trusting God. He knows how to bless you in unexpected ways!

New Horizon Worship Center

The young people took over the worship service this morning.

Aminta Culmer and Jonathan Massena sang after Jonathan gave his testimony.
 Jordan Mathai was the worship coordinator
 Rev. Dyecol Walker gave the Message.

We will be having a special New Year's Eve service beginning at 10 p.m.  It is a great way to start a new year.  Last year we tore down a wall and enlarged the sanctuary.  This year we will be celebrating GO-ing forward with  

Matthew 28:19-20

New International Version (NIV)
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Remember as long as you are breathing, it’s never too late to start over again.

Moon, Sunrise, Ducks. . .New Ducks!

 Early morning 20 percent full Moon
 Moon and clouds.
 Only 2 ducks, not quite feeding time. . .not light either!
 Now tell me, do you really believe these guys are shivering!!!
Cute though.
Pretty cloud in the sky.
 Good morning. . . time to eat. . .
Three more down by the canal.
 Only 3 at the Breakfast Club this morning.
 Two had flown over earlier and this one stayed at the canal.
After breakfast, two went off up the canal. . .
 . . .Hey, wait for me. . . .
 I stayed and talked with one of my walkers for quite awhile, in the meantime look what was on the other side and decided to swim under the bridge and pop up on the other side. . . .TWO new ducks. They look like young ones. . .from their color I can't tell the parents. . .
 My last Sunrise before going in. . .my walk is done!
It was a wonderful morning.

God doesn’t give you the people you want, instead, he gives you the people you need to teach you, to hurt you, to love you, and to make you into the person you were meant to be. (That explains it.)

When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing. Sometimes you just have to relax, breathe, let go and just live in the moment ~ be free!
