Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the rainy morning that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Well, the skies are gray and we have already had a thunderstorm with lots of rain, but that is welcome and will perhaps, cool things off a bit.
We had a quiet day yesterday... no reason to go anyplace, and I enjoyed checking on the plants outside. I noticed the Crown of Thorns has a lot of new growth on it from the rain we've had and the pitiful looking Mexican petunias are actually blooming. Publix has a lot of those in their planters and they look much healthier than mine, and are always blooming. Their landscaper must have a really green thumb!
The water is high and looks good at the Park, after being down some. It is peaceful to sit on a bench and just watch the still water, with all kinds of creatures swimming under the surface. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord.
Let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness,
let us exalt his name together.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!
Let the Lord's people show him reverence,
for those who honor him will have all they need.
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry,
but those who trust in the Lord will never go hungry.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
