Good chilly morning, dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Well, last night I had just gotten asleep when I heard what sounded like a strong rain blowing through , and I was thankful, because we still need rain. This morning the wind is blowing and the temp. is dropping and this is supposed to usher in the coldest weather of the season. So, if I don't have any reason to go out, I don't think I will!

It was a beautiful, warm day yesterday, though, and I enjoyed looking at the flock of ibis, and herons and an egret in the Park . Lots of people were crowded in because of the holiday, or just enjoying a day in the Park. God is good,

I took a good long walk in Walmart yesterday, It took me longer to stop and wait for carts to clear, to let me out of the aisles I was in, than it did to shop! Not a good day to go, but how was I to know? I don't think the economy has affected the local super store much.

Because of the historic celebration in Wash. DC, for my birthday, I thought I would send different scriptures about "HOPE". :o) These are all from the Promise Bible NLT.

Romans 15:13 I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I posted this one on the bulletin board in Louis' room after his surgery and memory loss several years ago.

Jeremiah 29:11"I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Psalm 130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is unfailing love and an overflowing supply of salvation.

Psalm 94:19 When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

Our hope is rooted in the wonderful acts of God in creation and history. The Bible gives full testimony to the fact that God is able to deliver us from any and every circumstance. He will either get us out of it or bring us through it-for his glory and our joy.

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

Amaryllis ( a year older, but not much wiser.)
