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! Rain, rain, beautiful rain. I don't have a rain gauge, but we must have gotten about two inches. I could almost hear the grass and bushes slurping it up! It's still pretty dark and cloudy, but the rain is supposed to be over. God is good to provide for our needs!
When I went in to the park yesterday, I noticed something shiny blue by the water and, being curious, parked and walked up on the berm to see. Well, somebody did a big "Uh, OH,!"
The shiny blue thing was a tractor mower that had the front end in the water. Three guys and a truck were standing around deciding what to do to get it out. The truck did not have a winch, but I have seen the crew that used to work at the park, winch large trees across the canal and guide them in place. I guess that is what inexperienced workers can do when mowing on a slope. Not a good thing!
From the little book God's Promises for Men:
God's love is with a man When;
He relies on God to Guide His Life.
Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk, and not faint.
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you.
Yes, I will help you.
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
"Of all the forces that make for a
better world, none is so powerful as hope.
With hope, one can think, one can work,
and one can dream dreams. If you have hope,
you have everything."
