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! Lots of sunshine and puffy clouds this morning, but our summer rains have been coming later in the afternoon, so maybe, we will have another shower later on. Last evening, I was taking all the trash out and when I opened the garage door, I was surprised to see it was raining! Not a hard rain, but a gentle one, But then we had a hard rain the night before that, so right now we are wet!
It was a good weekend. We had a wonderful sermon, finishing out the John series, then a time of prayer. After that, everyone was invited to eat birthday cake that a five year old wanted to share with the "church". She was so cute!
I showed off my wounded arm with the blue stitches to all those who were interested in my misadventures. Although it still looks really bad with the huge bruises, it does not hurt unless I rest my arm on the stitched up places. Which I try not to do!
I rode into the park to see what the storm had done, and saw where the water and trash had flowed up and over the weir. Lots of trash was piled up along the banks and further down, the canal was very full with several smaller trees down in the water. My front yard still has lots of twigs and larger deadwood in it from the trees, but the large nest hanging right over the driveway, did not get touched. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O Israel, how can you say the Lord does not
see your troubles? How can you say God
refuses to hear your case? 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 those who are 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,
