The Beatitudes

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 lots of clouds and some sunshine today for the start of the Grand Prix, so, hopefully, the rain will stay away this weekend at least. This will help the city to look good on TV wherever it is shown. I guess one of my favorite restaurants, The Hangar, has to close for the race. Hurts a lot of businesses that way.

Last night, I took a peek out of the front door before turning on the porch night light, and there was a little brown bunny sitting in the yard. He did not seem afraid, so I spoke to him for a couple minutes and left him sitting there. He was really cute. The birds have been out in full force, and though I can hear them singing close by, I usually cannot spot them in the trees. And, the squirrel nest is getting bigger because they are still dropping all the leaves and twigs down on the driveway. Yesterday, I swept another big pile of twigs off! They make very messy nests!

On another note; I think I related the story of the Times being thrown out in the yard, when I had requested it be put on the porch; Well, it has been placed in a chair right by the door for the past three or four mornings, so I wrote a note last night and taped it to the chair, thanking the carrier. He responded with a "no problem." and laid it on the paper. I know the carrier is a man, because my neighbor and friend has seen him.

Well, I am disposing of my balloons today. Just since yesterday, they have sagged more and are now floating just above the sofa, so it is time to say good bye...(sounds like the name of a song). Speaking of that, I know the DVD of Les Miserables is out today, and I really want to buy that!

I drove to the park yesterday, but while I saw lots of people, I did not see any birds, fowls or animals. Very strange! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Luke 5:20
Then Jesus turned to the disciples and said;
"God blesses you who are hungry now,
for you will be satisfied.
God blesses you who weep now,
for the time will come when you will laugh with joy.
God blesses you who are hated and 
excluded and mocked and cursed
because you are identified with me,
the Son of Man."

When that happens, rejoice! Yes, leap for
joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven.
And remember , the ancient prophets were
also treated that way by your ancestors.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!,

Love and hugs,
