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! It's a little cooler this morning, but will be up in the seventies later today. Perfect!
I went to the park yesterday and walked across the entrance bridge to look at the fallen maple tree. It is still lying in the water, so it looks like the Park tree crew will have to come and get it out. It is massive! Not a job for amateurs! There weren't a lot of people at the park, but some were having picnics and others walking dogs and themselves. The wind was blowing, so I did not walk far, since I did not have my walking shoes on.
On the way in, a gator was lying on the bank of the borrow pit lake with his tail curled up. A couple of cars had stopped so the people could take photos. That's why they come to the park. I think...just to see the gators in the wild.
I watched about 9 ibis aerating my yard yesterday and it looked like they were finding plenty to eat. I could see grubs and worms hanging from their beaks as they walked and snacked. Must be interesting underground! Also, I walked around to the north side of the house and my little neglected azalea bush was covered in pretty pink blossoms! I passed a home near here with a bed of amaryllis blooming well, Mine, on the other hand, are not even showing buds. Oh, well, God is good!
Psalm 63 NLT
O God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
In this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better to me than
How I praise you!
I will honor you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest of
I will praise you with songs of joy.
I lie awake thinking of you,
meditating on you through the night.
I think how much you have helped me;
I sing for joy in the shadow of your
I follow close behind you:
your strong right hand holds me
But those plotting to destroy me will
come to ruin.
They will go down into the depths of
They will die by the sword
and become the food of jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God.
All who trust in him will praise him,
while liars will be silenced.
I always give thanks for you remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
