Isaiah 40

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! Lots of sunshine and wind today after the wet, overcast day yesterday. But I have had the TV on all morning, watching the weather channel following the progress of the tsunami that is about to sweep over parts of Hawaii, and the destruction that is left in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami. So, many people are not rejoicing this morning. I have prayed for them.

Yesterday, I stayed home all day and caught up with my reading, after vacuuming and doing a few chores.Since the weather didn't clear up until late morning, it was a good day to stay home.
Lots of pollen was wetted down and until it dries out, sniffles and sinuses will be lessened, and that's a good thing. Today is much cooler and for awhile we have winter again, but it will be warmer again Sunday. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 40:3
Listen! I hear the voice of someone shouting, "Make a highway for the Lord through the wilderness. Make a straight, smooth road through the desert for our God. Fill the valleys and level the hills. Straighten out the curves and smooth off the rough spots. Then the glory of the Lord  will be revealed and all the people will see it together. The Lord has spoken!
A voice said, "Shout"!
I asked, "what should I shout?"
"Shout that the people are like the grass that dies away. Their beauty fades as quickly as the beauty of the flowers fade beneath the breath of the Lord. And so it is with people. The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever."

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
