Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the rainy day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! I was surprised when I opened the front door this morning to see the quiet rain coming down! We really need this kind of soaking rain, and, as always, God knew it, so since yesterday, it has been coming down. God is wise!

Of course, the Superbowl activities have been dampened a bit, but since that doesn't affect me in any way, it is not my problem. :o)

I had a very nice thing happen to me yesterday. As I was at the desk in the dentist's office, I looked out the window and saw that it was raining quite hard, and I said to the receptionist that I knew I should have brought my umbrella in. With that, a young man who I thought was asleep, got up and went outside and came back with his umbrella! He handed it to me and said I could use his! He was so kind to do that, so I went to the car dry, and came to the door to pick up Louis, and gave the umbrella to the receptionist to give back to the young man with my thanks!! God puts very good people in my path! He is good!

We drove through the park in the rain and saw a turtle under a tree with his head stuck up high. I think he was a snapper, but could not tell too well from a distance. There were only four cars parked, and a couple of people with an umbrella were bravely headed for a walk. Just walkin' in the rain...reminds me of a song! :o) The oak trees were quite colorful with the last of the yellow leaves falling and covering the road. Also the maples are losing the last of their red leaves. It was quite peaceful there.

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Matthew 20:28 "Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must become your slave. For even I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others, and to give my life as a ransom for many."

This was Jesus, talking to his disciples, because James and John had asked if they could sit at his right and left in heaven, and the other ten were indignant.

This is all I am sending today. Have a great weekend watching the Superbowl, or engaging in other activities!

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

Love and hugs,
