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 Maundy Thursday and the sky is blue with just a few light, puffy clouds scudding across the sky..looks like another beautiful day.
I had an interesting day yesterday, with some surprises in it. You just never know what God has planned for you each day, so it's kind of fun to see what happens. When I went to Publix, I was surprised to see a very old friend from St. James's days, so we chatted a bit and caught up on our families. and I saw another old friend, but not to speak to. Then, later on, A cousin called me from California. I had not heard from him since probably we were both pre-teens! Now, that's a long time!! He found me on Facebook, so that social network can do some good after all!
After that, my friends, and neighbor ladies came to clean the house, so I caught them up on my Not So Great Adventure #4. They are always interested in what goes on with me. One of them, Cheryl, looks after me and almost called me at 11 night before last to tell me my porch light was not on. I had forgotten to turn it on. She always warns me to lock my doors and wear my home companion button. I am blessed to have people looking out for me!! God is good!
I had asked God to direct me in the scripture for today, and when I opened my Bible it fell open to the one I had decided on;
Psalm 139:1-6, 23-24 NLT
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my every thought when far away.
You chart the path ahead of me
and tell me where to stop and rest.Every moment you know where I am.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You both precede and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to know!
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path
of everlasting life.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
