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! We are still waiting for the lower humidity to come, but maybe one of these days....The temps are lower, though, and the water is gradually drying up in the street gutters. I called the city rep about a pothole in front of the house and sure enough, someone came to check it out, but nothing has been done about it yet. Guess it takes a while to schedule something like that. Actually, to my knowledge, this street has not been resurfaced or had anything done to it since we moved in 43 years ago. Amazing the shape it is in!
Well, yesterday I had a quiet day, which I will have to make up for today. Shopping, etc. So. whenever I procrastinate, I have to make up for it all in one day. Serves me right! One thing that needs doing again is sweeping off the acorns from the porch! I can be hit on the head while sweeping, because they are falling so fast! They are getting crunched all over the driveway, and that makes them hard to scrape up.
I got to the park and saw the usual anhinga sunning the wings on the weir, and a couple of great blue herons down in the canal near the entrance bridge. They are so beautiful! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Oh, give me back my joy again,
you have broken me-- now let me rejoice.
Don't keep looking at my sins,
Remove the stain of my guilt.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
Renew a right spirit within me.
Do not banish me from your presence,
and don't take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me again the joy of your salvation,
and make me willing to obey you.
Then I will teach your ways to sinners,
and they will return to you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
