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! Lots of wind this morning and sun, and a few clouds, and probably rain sometime or other.
It's hard to predict the rain any more. I knew there was a very dark cloud nearby yesterday afternoon, but all at once I heard a big clap of thunder and rain started to come down very hard and fast. Then, a short time later the rain was gone and we had sun. Not long after that, another shower popped up and so on. Everything was very wet this morning, so I guess more rain came during the night. Rain is still dripping off the roof. Since school started today, maybe it will hold off long enough for the kids to get home...
I enjoyed watching the Rays games, and seeing them make a mighty come back Saturday night and win easily yesterday, They are fun to watch!
I went to the park in the pouring rain Saturday, and counted only three cars. I was kind of surprised to see that many, because it was pouring all day, but one person was in the building and who knows where the others were. It is sorta nice being in the rain at the park. Everything looks very green, it is calm, peaceful and fairly quiet, if you can discount the cars roaring by on the nearby interstate. I didn't see any wildlife, but yesterday, when I drove in, I saw a flock of ibis, of course, the squirrels, but not much else. But, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I was so foolish and ignorant-
I must have seen like a senseless animal to you.
Yet I still belong to you,
you are holding my right hand.
You will keep on guiding me with your counsel
leading me to a glorious destiny.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
I desire you more than anything in earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart.
He is mine forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
