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 have a front coming through now, and the wind is blowing, the sky is overcast and the temp is in the low seventies. Still, we are warmer than most of the country, so, even though we will be chilly on Thanksgiving, we won't have snow or sleet. Another thing to be thankful for!
I got caught up with some things yesterday...did my ironing, swept the porch, which does not look like it now, and took a walk around the house, noting the mildew on the north side, which does not get any sun, due to the neighbors towering podacarpus hedge. I just had the house washed about a month and a half ago, but clean does not last..
I took a ride into the park and saw a gopher tortoise busily digging a new hole. The dirt was just flying, and it really was amusing. If there had not been people standing around filming, I would have done the same, but I have never used the video on my iphone, so maybe the pics would not have turned out well. but, anyway, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
He will not constantly accuse us,
nor remain angry forever.
He has not punished us for all our sins,
nor does he deal with us as we deserve.
For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
The Lord is like a father to his children,
tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
For he understands how weak we are.
He knows we are only dust.
Our days are like grass.
like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
The wind blows, we are gone---
as though we had never been here.
But the love of the Lord remains forever
with those who fear him.
His salvation extends to the children's children
of those who are faithful to his covenant
of those who obey his commandment...
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
