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! Cool in the mornings and warmer in the afternoon; that seems to be the weather pattern for the present and immediate future. But I am still happy I put the flannel sheet on yesterday, because I was cozy all night...no icy sheets until I warmed them up!
I heard the yard man before I was even out of the shower this morning, so I had to hurry and get dressed. I never know when he is coming, or what time, so that is always a surprise! But he blew off the acorns and leaves and piled them up in the driveway, then borrowed my rake and piled them in the garbage dumpster. As we were talking , the leaves were falling, so it won't take long until the driveway and porch are covered again.
After I came back inside, I answered a call from my handy man and he will be here tomorrow to put up the outside lights. I will have to be up and dressed before 8:30, so I may be late again typing this.
After being busy all morning, yesterday, I discovered American Pickers was on. Since I was eating lunch, I watched them for awhile. I really like antiques and like to watch them poke around in people's junk, finding treasures.
When I drove to the park yesterday, after running a few errands, I saw the teacher coming from the cage with water bowl and food dish and then saw an egret on the bank of the canal by the entrance bridge. Beauty among the wild trees and shrubs along the canal. A few people were out enjoying the gorgeous weather, just like today!
Well, today I am remembering that I was married to the love of my life for 64 years, should he have lived two more years. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Shout with joy to the Lord, O earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
