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! Seems like the rain can pop up any time. Yesterday was nice and hot and then later in the evening a thunderstorm blew up and I mean blew! I rescued my large poinsettia plant which is still thriving from Christmas, because it was blowing on the porch, and I was afraid it would topple off the table it sits on.

I had another unexpected encounter in the Public Library this time. Yesterday I wrote about the Asian woman, well, this was a European couple, I think. I could not tell from their accents, but they came to the same aisle I was browsing through, and , as I was adjusting my hearing aid, it popped out of my ear. I heard it hit a shelf on the way down, so I started looking for it, and the couple heard it and got down on their hands and knees looking. I showed them what the other one looked like so they would know what they were looking for, and sure enough, the woman found it on top of a book on the bottom shelf.  This lead to a short conversation and the man asked me about the book he was looking for; To Kill A Mockingbird: by Harper Lee. One of my all time favorites, by the way, The Librarian had written it down and said there was one copy on the shelf. I helped them look for it, and told him about large print, so we went over there and looked and no book. We went back to the other aisle and after thanking me profusely and me doing the same, we parted ways. I think he must have finally found the book, but it was well hidden,  God places unusual people in our paths daily it seems.

After getting my glasses adjusted at the optical shop, I went on to the park. It was noon and getting very hot, so I did not get out, but noticed the squirrels zipping around and a beautiful egret posed to catch lunch. I did not get out to check on the gator, because a couple of men were standing in front of the railing where the gator hangs out. Maybe sometime today..God is good!

From the little God's Promises book:

Proverbs 4:5-11
Get wisdom! Get understanding!
Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you;
Love her, and she will keep you,
Wisdom is the principal thing:
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding,
Exalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her,
She will place on your head an ornament of grace;
A crown of glory she will deliver to you.
Hear, my son, and receive my sayings,
And the years of your life will be many.
I have taught you in the way of wisdom;
I have led you in right paths.

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

Love and hugs, Amaryllis
