Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! As I stepped outside I could see puffy clouds, but now the sky seems clearer, although we may have a shower unexpectedly like we did yesterday.
God provides for our needs!
I am still basking in the afterglow of my special day trip to Puerto Rico Friday. I never would have guessed so much could be packed into 24 hours, but we did it! I was sleepy all day Saturday, and took a short nap Sunday, but feel caught up this morning. With Matthew around, there's not much time for sleeping! He leaves for Tenn. Friday, and I will really miss him!
From the Promise Bible:
"God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear, even if earthquakes come,
and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam,
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!
A river brings joy to the city of our God,
the sacred home of the most High.
God himself lives in that city; it cannot be destroyed.
God will protect it at the break of day.
The nations are in an uproar, and kingdoms crumble!
God thunders, and the earth melts!
The Lord Almighty is here among us;
the God of Israel is our fortress.
Come, see the glorious works of the Lord.
See how he brings destruction upon the world
and causes wars to end throughout the earth.
He breaks the bow and snaps the spear in two;
He burns the shields with fire.
Be silent and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation,
I will be honored throughout the world."
The Lord Almighty is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
