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! The sun is shining now, very brightly, but we had a good downpour about 5 or 6 this morning. I woke up and heard it just pouring and was so content to go on back to sleep to the sound of rain!
My paper carrier, who is still putting the Times in the chair on the front porch, did the same this morning, and even though the paper was sitting in a puddle in the chair, it was dry, because he had knotted the end of the wrapper. He is the best carrier I have ever had. Much improved over the one who used to throw it on the roof!
Well, we had a little excitement the next block over late yesterday. When I drove out to go to the park, the street was blocked off by a police cruiser, and I could see a lot of cars plus cop cars further down the street. They remained there for quite some time, but I still do not know what was going on. Whatever it was, was pretty serious. Maybe I will find out sometime.
I went on to the quiet park and saw anhingas, a few people, lots of squirrels, and lots of shade, greenery, and peacefulness. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
So we have continued praying for you ever
since we first heard about you. We ask God to
give you a complete understanding of what he
wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you
wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you
live will always honor and please the Lord, and
you will continually do good kind things for others.
All the while you will learn to know God better and better.
We also pray that you will be strengthened with his
glorious power so that you will have all the patience
and endurance that you need. May you be filled with
joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled
you to share the inheritance that belongs to God's
holy people, who live in the light. For he has rescued
us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness
and he has brought us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
God has purchased our freedom with his blood and
has forgiven all our sins.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers
with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
