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! I don't know about you, but this time change always messes up my sleep patterns for a couple days. I have had two restless nights, so as a result, I sleep a little later in the morning! You wouldn't think an hour would make that much difference! Well, I had a nice weekend, not doing much of anything, except going to the Park.
The azaleas are all through blooming there, but lots of people were there yesterday, enjoying the sun and picnicking, walking dogs, and just enjoying the good weather. I saw lots of ibis, and people have already started throwing them crumbs. Guess it is a change for the ibis from the grubs and assorted bugs they dig from the ground!
I treated myself to a hot dog, (excuse me," steak frank") from Steak and Shake yesterday for supper, and coming home, I noticed that Turner's Creek was very full with high tide. Lots of seagulls were circling around overhead, because someone had put bread out for ducks. I was very happy to get out from under the gulls! You know why!
The birds and squirrels are so happy that I put water out for them in a bowl on the wall of the porch! I watched a mockingbird sit on the rim for a couple minutes..unusual, because the bluejays run them off. The mocker flew down to get a bug and came back up and then flew down in front of the door to get another bug and then took off! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare of the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety:
he is my God, and I am trusting him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from the fatal plague.
He will shield you with his wings.
He will shelter you with his feathers.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.....
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs, Amaryllis
