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! After a quiet, cooler, overcast day yesterday, today the sky is blue, streaked with pink clouds and the promise of sunshine and a very hot day!
Looks like the tropical disturbance in the gulf has moved on north, if that was the cause of our cloudy weather yesterday. On the one outing we had yesterday we checked in at the park and saw two peahens on the way in, and a smaller cousin of the large gopher tortoise that hangs out at the curve. They look indestructible, but I know they are not I also spied my favorite sight, a roseate spoonbill at our local lake. What beauty in the lovely pinks of that bird. God is special and good!
Even though I did not attend church because of my coughing, I can listen to the sermon online since my faithful friend put it there already! I am thankful for him!
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.
I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me,
healing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help
will be radiant with joy;
no shadow or shame with darken their faces.
I cried out to the Lord in my suffering
and he heard me.
He set me free from all my fears,
For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him,
and he rescues them.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
