God's Wisdom from Isaiah 40

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 rain yesterday! But the yard is still draining and the gutters in front are full, as the water runs swiftly to the nearest storm drain.

I had a lazy day yesterday, only getting out to run a few errands, and then to the park. the water has gone down slightly in the canal and is off the weir, leaving lots of trash caught on the poles. I watched mamas and babies in strollers getting ready for a long walk, and a man with a beautiful, old Dalmatian walking along the sidewalk. The dog looked tired and was walking very slowly, that's why I thought he was old. Squirrels were scampering about, but I did not see any ibises. Strange.

When I came home, I watched a blue jay eating acorns in the front yard. I don't know how he got so many into his craw, if that's what they have. Then, off he flew with one in his mouth, so he must have a nest somewhere near. God's creations are marvelous. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 40:27
O Israel, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? How can you say God refuses to hear your case? Have you never heard or understood? Don't you know that the Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to those who are tired and worn out; he offers strength to the weak. Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up. But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

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

Love and hugs,
