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! No smokey smell when I stepped outside this morning, and apparently, no explanation of what it was. There were several fires some distance away, but I guess it will remain a mystery. But I was not the only one who noticed it. Today the air is frest and a bit of a breeze, but very humid.
Yesterday I had an early (for me) appointment with my dental hygienist, clear across town, so that's why I took the day off. She is expecting her first baby in three weeks, so I was one of her last patients before maternity leave. But she will be back in six months when I am due for another cleaning. Danielle, the hygienist, is a sweet girl, who was very patient with Louis when he would go in for a cleaning.
So, since I was very close to Peltz Shoes, I had to stop by and check them out. I bought a pair, which I will have to take back, because once again I let the sales girl talk me into a shoe that is not my size. Grrr. Why do I do that??
Well, I stopped in the park and saw two anhingas airing out the wings on the weir. The path had been mowed alongside the road, and Ibis were pecking in the freshly mowed part. Speaking of them, there were also Ibis pecking next door in the yard when I went out this morning. I happened to realize that I have not seen any poinciana trees in bloom since the jacaranda trees are finished. Maybe I just have not noticed them. Anyway, God is good! P. S. I will be absent tomorrow also, because of taking Brian to the airport to be with Daryl and Matthew this weekend. Have a safe Memorial Day, all!
Psalm 23 from The Message:
God, my shepherd!
I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction.
Even when the way goes through Death Valley,
I'm not afraid when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook makes me feel secure.
You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing.
Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs, Amaryllis
