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! Another day of sun and humidity! When I opened the door this morning, the heat struck me and it was still early! I filled up the water bowl yesterday for the birds and squirrels and apparently, the birds have been bathing in it, because the water was kinda murky looking like it was dusty! It is really not a big bowl, (an empty Cool Whip container), but the critters are appreciative of a place to splash around.
I was sitting at the P.C. yesterday and looked out the window in time to see two large butterflies flitting by...not at the same time. One looked like a swallow tail, but very yellow and the other was mostly yellow. They went so fast, I could not really tell what kind they were, but I could see they were very beautiful.
My cleaning ladies came yesterday and caught me up on their future "road trip". They are driving to the married one's daughter's house in VA to visit with the grandkid and then, after they return, they will have to go back to baby sit while the daughter and husband go to Hawaii where he will be assigned for a short time. The servicemen were told to bring their wives, because of a short duty day. Well, since one of the ladies does not like to fly, she got reservations on Amtrak, including a room where she and Cheryl will ride in comfort for 21 hours. Sounds like fun to me! These gals have been friends and in business together for about 18 years! One is married with adult kids and the other is single. I really appreciate them.
After doing a little shopping yesterday, I went to the park and watched the work men planting a bunch of trees some place. They have a dozen or so, but I could not see where they were going in. At the spot where they are planting, there are already large maple and oak trees, so I will have to take a walk to find out what is going on. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
In times of trouble, may the Lord respondto your cry.
May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary
and strengthen you from Jerusalem.
May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings.
May he grant your heart's desire,
and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory,
flying banners to honor our Lord.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons
but we boast in the Lord our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O Lord.
Respond to our cry for help.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
