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! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the squirrels are already running around and digging up acorns in the yard. But not for long. I had an estimate from the tree man yesterday and expected him next week, but he called this morning with a cancellation and will be out a little later today to start the trimming. The squirrels won't be happy then!
David, who mows my yard faithfully, edges and blows came yesterday and after he finished the yard took the dirty filters out of my new vacuum and replaced them with clean ones. It was a messy job that I had been putting off. He also replaced the batteries in my caller ID which I thought was worn out. Works like new, now! I am blessed to have friends who do over and above what I ask. David is not a believer, although he sometimes asks me to pray for him. I do that anyway, every day.
I did not get out until afternoon to ride over to the park. It was fairly quiet...nice breeze, but very hot and humid. There is a lot of interest in the new hawk's nest with cameras trained on it each day. The water was fairly calm and an ibis was keeping a vigil by the bank of the canal, instead of walking and poking with his beak. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Happy are people of integrity,
who follow the law of the Lord.
Happy are those who obey his decrees
and search for him with all their hearts.
They do not compromise with evil,
and they walk only in his paths.
You have charged us
to keep your commandments carefully.
Oh, that my actions would consistently
reflect your principles!
Then I will not be disgraced
when I compare my life with your commands.
When I learn your righteous laws,
I will thank you by living as I should.
I will obey your principles.
Please don't give up on me!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
