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! Still no rain and lots of sunshine, so the grass is growing and my yard man just left.
Even though the water is still draining out of the yard, I think it is getting easier for him to mow, although he still has to be careful not to leave tracks with his mower. I notice that several yards in the neighborhood have black tire tracks in them where cars have driven over them. Just not a good thing to do with the ground so wet.
I saw another duck family resting on the street...a bad place to take a nap! The babies were still downy and decided to plop down in the shade of a tree, right in the street. Mama was standing by, giving cars the evil eye to warn drivers her babes were resting! People are pretty much careful when passing or waiting for the duck family to cross. I have even seen traffic at a standstill just waiting for the ducks to get out of the way, on 9th Street!
I saw the gopher tortoise lumbering along at the park yesterday, but still did not stop for a photo. The air was very humid, but people were still out walking dogs and themselves. Some people were just sitting in the cars reading or resting. A peaceful place! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
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,
