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! Today we have sunshine and breezes, after the overcast and rain of yesterday. But I am thankful for the rain, since we were dry for so long. Morning is the time for the birds to zip around and gather berries and whatever they eat, worms, too, and it is nice to see so many of them.
I mostly stayed home yesterday, since I didn't need anything, so I did laundry and read and other little things that needed doing. I went to the park later and saw the water gleaming on the grass and dripping from the trees. A beautiful, white egret was looking for a fish, and I noticed that the hydrilla has been sprayed and is brown, so that's been taken care of. Also, a large maple limb which had broken and was hanging down by a picnic table in the circle, had been removed after a week or so. So, necessary chores get done after while. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
In times of trouble, may the Lord respond to your cry.
May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary
and strengthen you from Jerusalem.
May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings.
May he grant your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory,
flying banners to honor our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons,
but we boast in the Lord our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Respond to our cry for help.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
