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! More of the same weather today, cool in the mornings and very warm in the afternoon. Even the weatherman said we need rain to settle the pollen, which is still very high. But no tornadoes and no bad things happening, so we can be thankful for blessings!
I made a run to the Family Bookstore yesterday and bought some items, then, since it was lunch time, I got in the drive-thru line at Chick-fil-a to buy some food to take home. Even though the line was clear to the back of the building, it moved fast and the order takers are unfailingly nice and polite. But I have to admit, if Panera Bread had a drive thru, I would buy there, because I really like their food!
I went in to the park on my way, and saw just a few people there at mid-day. A flock of ibis, a turtle on the bank and the anhinga drying out wings were at the weir. Their roads are still covered with leaves and stuff from the oaks, as my yard is, but my yard man comes tomorrow to do some mowing and trimming. So, God is good!
From The Promise Bible NLT:
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 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,
