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! It is still coolish and a bit more humid this morning, but whatever God sends is good!
I heard helicopters when I arose this morning, so turned on the news and heard about a fire over in the Town Apts. near here.
I stepped outside and saw a chopper hovering over 62nd ave and then another came and was hovering almost overhead, while slowing moving backward. I pray no one was hurt. A lot of older people live in those apartments, and there was a fire there many years ago which took out a whole unit.
Yesterday, David came and mowed and had the yard looking very nice and the tree man came at the same time to estimate the cost of trimming the huge oaks. I think I will have that done early next month, much to the dismay of the squirrels!
Speaking of squirrels, while driving through the park yesterday, one dashed across in front of me, narrowly escaping danger! They are fearless as I watch them leap from our trees to the roof...a leap of about six feet! They are amazing!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart;
I will sing your praises before the gods.
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
I will give thanks to your name
for your unfailing love and faithfulness,
because your promises are backed
by the honor of your name.
When I pray, you answer me,
you encourage me by giving me the
strength I need....
Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will preserve me against the anger
of my enemies.
You will clench your fist against my angry
Your power will save me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life--
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
