FEBRUARY 18 – NO WORRIES – Do you think ducks worry?  Yesterday afternoon I ran down to the pond. As I was watching the incredible water fountains, I was  also watching the ducks. They were chilling out with me; just enjoying the view! They fluffed their feathers and got back into the water.  They swam around the fountains and would disappear under the water for several seconds at a time. I started smiling and I immediately thought of this verse – Matthew 6:26-27 “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? “Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? (NKJ) Don’t worry about your circumstance – God’s got it covered! He is in control at all times and you are of value to Him! Today, fluff your feathers and chill out….and SMILE! 

 FEBRUARY 17 – GODS PLAN – Have you ever thought ‘No Way’ until God told you ‘Yes Way’? When I first ‘unofficially’ met Leo I had these exact thoughts, “No way buddy. Not in a million years. It will NEVER happen.” Then one year later when I ‘officially’ met Leo at the picnic every thing changed. Why? How? Because then it was God’s timing and it was God’s plan! A year earlier it was not yet time for me to know that particular calling of God in my life. The Lord had not yet revealed those plans to me. God will do what He wills, when He wills, no matter what man thinks! And I praise God for that because Leo loves me with the love of the Father! Acts 5:38-39 “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing;”but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it– lest you even be found to fight against God.”
