What a beautiful day!!

Spring is in the air!! and I am just loving it! I know it isn't going to last as it is only the beginning of March. BUT it is just around the corner, buds are poking their little heads out of the dirt, where the snow has melted. I even saw full bloom crocus today

Hubby I am went to Seaside Heights today, after my physical therapy appointment. We had sausage sandwich's and lemonade from Midway and then walked the whole boardwalk. What a gorgeous day it was. there were a lot of people out enjoying the weather as well. There were some with there Love's and some family's with babies strolling along stopping now and then to let the little one get out and walk or run. Some were even playing in the sand. Some people were just out for the solitude, sitting and taking in the warmth of the sunshine. There were some with there best friends just hanging out and then the ones who were out with there dogs/puppies, romping around in the sand and water. Some of the businesses were fixing up their booths getting ready for the season and some were already open, like Midway, which usually isn't open this early, we were happy!

I am so thankful for day's like this, not that i am not thankful each day, but I felt good health wise today , even after physical therapy. It's nice when hubby andI both feel good together and are able to go out and enjoy the day! I took a nice nap as well. Made lasagna for dinner and now just catching up on blog's and facebook. Lost is on tonight, I am sad in a way that this is the last season. I will say one thing, the name of the show surely fits it!! I am glad a few others watch so we can compare notes and figure it out .

OH and it is baseball season!!! GO METS!!! Weve been watching the preseason games. I LOVE baseball! We also ordered our season tickets for the Lakewood Blueclaws and for the Somerset Patriots games.

Well that's all for today. God Bless, Hugs & Love Donna

Romans 5 (The Message)

Developing Patience

1-2By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that's not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God's grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.

3-5There's more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we're hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we're never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can't round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!

6-8Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn't, and doesn't, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn't been so weak, we wouldn't have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.

9-11Now that we are set right with God by means of this sacrificial death, the consummate blood sacrifice, there is no longer a question of being at odds with God in any way. If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms with God by the sacrificial death of his Son, now that we're at our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by means of his resurrection life! Now that we have actually received this amazing friendship with God, we are no longer content to simply say it in plodding prose. We sing and shout our praises to God through Jesus, the Messiah!
