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! The air is definitely cooler and it looks and feels like fall is definitely here! It will warm up soon and we will probably be up to ninety, but change is in the air!
I attended a birthday party last night with a lot of friends, old and new, and had a really good time, staying out a little later than I usually do. And, another dear friend and prayer warrior is having her 97th birthday today! She lives alone and gets around with just a cane and is pretty healthy. The Lord has blessed her and me with her friendship. She is a blessing to all who know her!
I stopped in at the park after church yesterday, and saw a lot of cars, so the boardwalk was busy. The air was nice and it was a beautiful day, so people were out enjoying nature. The water is still high and now that the hydrilla as washed in again, it looks very pretty with the water rushing, the shade trees and the falling leaves. My beauty berry bush, and other flowering shrubs are very pretty and the grass has really greened up from all the rain, so God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight to life.
Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever.
The laws of the Lord are true, each one is fair.
They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
They are a warning to those who hear them;
There is great reward for those who obey them.
How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
Keep me from deliberate sins!
Don't let them control me.
Then I will live free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
