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! Rain is still dripping off the roof, from the thunderstorm we had last night. Looks like they roll in about 7:30 each evening, now, but the sun is shining and it will still be quite warm today.
I did not get out much yesterday. My cleaning ladies came in the morning and I always enjoy talking with them as they work. It's good to hear what is going on in their world. They are planning a weekend trip to VA. and are worried about all the rain they will probably have. They have been working together for fourteen years and get along very well, living right next door to each other, and across the street from me. I am glad to have Cheryl, who always keeps an eye out for me.
I did get out to the park, for a bit of peace from the tree trimmer who was working all day just two houses down the street. What a noise from the chipper!! I hope they wear earplugs!
That young gator is being fed by onlookers who drop stuff down on the mudbank where he sits. Even though the sign is right in front of them, they still do what is forbidden. ..oh, well..
I was happy to hear several different bird calls when I stepped outside yesterday morning. I just stood and watched a mockingbird pecking along the ground. He ignored me and came hopping toward me and kept pecking until he reached the driveway and then took off! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Those who refuse to slander others or harm their neighbors or speak evil of their friends. Those who despise persistent sinners, and honor the faithful followers of the Lord and keep their promises even when it hurts. Those who do not charge interest on the money they lend, and who refuse to accept bribes to testify against the innocent. Such people will stand firm forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
