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! When I stepped outside in the wet darkness this morning, I did not expect to see any stars, but there was Venus, comforting in its brilliance, shining brightly in the east. There were also a few other stars, but after the rain last evening, I didn't know if there would still be clouds or not.
What a thunderstorm we had! I had to stop washing dishes for a while, because I am not comfortable having water in a metal sink in front of a window, when lightning and thunder are crashing all around. Better to feel safe! I took hubby to the doctor in the very hot, bright afternoon, and got him in the heavy door after a struggle. I almost dumped him out when I hit a slight incline from the driveway to the concrete entrance. Luckily, he was hanging on! :o) That wheelchair is awkward. But the nurse said I should have called them and they would have helped. I tried but they were all in the back finishing lunch. However, the nurse helped me out with him and we got safely home before the rains came. God is good!
We drove through the Park and I was pleased to see how high the water is. We saw an anhinga airing its wings as usual and looked at the numerous toadstools that have popped up on the berms. The ones at the park are white, but in our yard they are orangish. I don't think they are edible. :o)
Psalm 37 from the Promise Bible NLT:
Don't worry about the wicked.
Don't envy those who do wrong.
For like grass, they soon fade away
Like springtime flowers, the soon wither.
Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him and he will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn,
and the justice of your cause will shine
as the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for Him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their evil schemes.
Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others--
it only leads to harm
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord
will possess the land.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
