Isaiah 40

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! Already the weatherman is warning about the humidity and heat coming up today, but earlier the wind was a bit cooler. We are supposed to have lake effect winds up to twenty mph all day, lots of hair spray for me for when I go out!

I filled the bowl with water that I keep on the porch wall, and lots of birds have been flocking o get drinks..even some squirrels help themselves. So that means that they are dry and except for lakes and canals, there is no place for them to drink since the gutters are dry,. If I had a birdbath, I would not be able to see them come, because the yard is low, so I just keep the bowl for them. Sometimes,the birds take baths in the bowl, which splashes most of the water out!

Speaking of birds, I saw a pretty lady cardinal land in the hedge outside my window. She posed there for a minute or two, then flew off. Hopefully, they have a nest near.

When I went to the park yesterday, I saw a couple turtles on the bank of the weir and a couple ibis further down in the circle. There were quiet a few people there, later in the afternoon. I went after my cleaning ladies had left. They caught me up on the news, as usual. One of them has a sister who is the manager of the Office Depot, where I am going to mail a package today. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 49:28-31
Have you never heard or understood? Don't you know
that the Lord is the everlasting God, the
Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or weary. No
one can measure the depths of his
understanding. He gives power to those who
are tired and worn out, he offers strength to
the weak. Even youths will become
exhausted, and young men will give up.
But those who wait on the Lord will find
new strength. They will fly high on wings
like eagles. They will run and not grow
weary. They will walk and not faint.

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

love and hugs,
