Thoughts for the day

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the cloudy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! We have been waiting for friends to pick Matthew up for a trip to Busch Gardens, so that's the reason for the delay.

We were at the Park in time to see the helicopter dropping the mixture for mosquito control yesterday. The pilot swoops so low, he is clearly visible in the bubble, so we were excited to stay and watch.

Last evening, Louis had a 5 o'clock appt. with the Podiatrist, and it was pouring and storming at that time, but, foolish me, we took off because I could not get through on the phone to cancel. Anyway, we drove through the hail and lots of water and got soaked going into the doctor's office. We got home and dried off and changed clothes, then went out to dinner with our friends. God is good!

From the little book You're a Blessing to Me:

I believe that God brings us many precious gifts during our lives-spectacular sunsets, good food, the warmth of the sunshine, and the refreshment of cool rains.

But even with all those great gifts, and many more besides, He didn't stop there. He gave us people, people like you, who bless our lives with kindness.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
