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! I had to run some errands yesterday, which involved getting out of the car into the very hot sun. Wow! What heat! I slather on #49 sun block each day because I just had another pre-cancerous spot removed, so I try to be careful. I also take a bottle of water with me whenever I leave home.
I drove through the park to see everything simmering in the bright sun, but the trees shade the drive into the park, and the shade is thick and cool all around. I didn't see many people around and no anhingas again, but passed a beautiful crape myrtle bush, just covered with white blossoms. We saw beautiful ones in Ala. and GA last week, but ours are just as pretty here.
Today I am going out to lunch with some dear friends before they leave for MIchigan for about five weeks. It will be good to catch up with them. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Happy are those who fear the Lord.
Yes, happy are those who delight in doing what he commands.
Their children will be successful everywhere.
An entire generation of godly people
will be blessed.
they themselves will be wealthy,
and their good deeds will never be forgotten.
When darkness overtakes the godly. light
will come bursting in.
They are generous , compassionate,
All goes well for those who are generous,
who lend freely and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil
Those who are righteous will be
They do not fear bad news;
they confidently trust the Lord to care
They are confident and fearless
and can face their foes triumphantly.
They give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will never be forgotten.
They will have influence and honor.
The wicked will be infuriated when they
They will grind their teeth in anger,
They will slink away, their hopes Thwarted.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love.
Love and hugs and have a great weekend,
