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! Today is another sunny, windy day that God has given us, so we will be glad, but there was another wild fire in another county, which means we desperately need more rain. Hopefully, God will provide soon. (I had to pause for a minute to watch a big blue jay hop through the podacarpus hedge outside my window, pulling seeds off of it. The jay looked very fierce, as they do because of their markings.)
I had a shopping day yesterday, and then went to the park. After that I had a perm by Mari and enjoyed chat time with her. After that, it was almost time to go to a Mexican food birthday party for a dear friend. Lots of people, lots of food, and lots of talk! Great time.God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O, God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for you
My soul thirsts for you;
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory,
Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself;
How I praise you!
I will honor you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest of goods.
I will praise you with songs of joy.
I lie awake thinking of you,
meditating on you through the night.
I think how much you have helped me.
I sing for joy in the shadow of your protecting wings.
I follow close behind you;
your strong right hand holds me securely.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
