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! An other chilly start to the day, but like yesterday, it will be warming up to the seventies, so with lots of sunshine it is a pretty day! Yesterday afternoon turned out to be very warm out in the sun, and I had to shed my sweater to bring the groceries in.
Yes, I finally went to Publix, which I had been needing to do for a couple weeks. Shopping was a pleasure, but checking out not so much. I should say just the bagging was lacking. I admire Publix for hiring handicapped people and those who can barely speak English, but this man could have used a little common sense. He filled one of my bags, (I take my own) so full that the handle ripped the fabric as I took it out of the car. I always take my own insulated bag for cold stuff and he neglected to put ice cream in it and a couple more frozen things. Sigh. Fortunately, nothing was spoiled, but my muscles were sore from lifting the heavy bags. I should have been watching him more closely to make sure the bags were not too full. On the other hand, there is one stock man who has been there a long time and he is always so helpful. He takes my cart, even if I only have a small amount of groceries, and he takes them to the van and unloads them for me. So, it takes all kinds!
I kept an appointment with my podiatrist yesterday, to have him take a look at in ingrown toenail which was so tender, I could hardly walk Wednesday. He took hold of my foot and told me it was icy! I told him I always have cold feet! But, after he worked on the toenail, my foot feels much better today,so maybe I will not need to have a piece of the toenail removed. Ouch!
My yardman came yesterday, and now the driveway looks much better without all the twigs and stuff that fell from the oak trees during the rain we had earlier this week. He also cut the grass, which had not needed it for weeks. I has started to grow, so spring is just around the corner, hopefully! After all the shopping and appointment, I went to the park for relaxation, and stopped to look at the gator who, apparently has moved from across the road to the bank by the weir. Or maybe this is a different one. Anyway, with long shadows and bright sunshine mixed, it was a restful place to go. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
As God's messenger, I give each of you this warning: be
honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your
value by how much faith God has given you. Just as our
bodies have many parts and each part has a special
function , so it is with Christ's body. We are all parts of
His own body and each of us has different work to do.
And since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to
each other, and each of us needs all the others...
Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
