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! I have not seen the sun yet this morning, in fact, we just had a hard downpour. which almost put me to sleep while I was having my devotions! Just something about having the sound of rain coming down...and, I went to sleep to the sounds of thunder and rain falling last night, so the wet weather is back again for a little while.
It was overcast but not raining when I went grocery shopping yesterday. But the humidity was very high and it was very hot when I came out of the air conditioned store! I get spoiled when I go from an air conditioned house to an air conditioned car, and then go in a chilly store. But it is good!
After I left the store, I drove to the park and noticed a lot of clumps of hydrilla loose in the canal. They usually flow down stream on the current and wind up clogged against the third bridge. There were a few people out , so some really enjoy the heat. Or at least,, they don't mind it.
One of the things I have enjoyed this summer has been the beautiful flowers alongside the street that Dolin's nursery has displayed. The sun flowers and the black-eyed susans have been outstanding! Someone always has seasonal flowers planted there, for us motorists to enjoy.
God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will praise you among all your people.
Praise the Lord, all you who fear him!
Honor him, all you descendants of Jacob!
Show him reverence, all you
descendants of Israel!
For he has not ignored the suffering of the needy.
He has not turned and walked away,
He has listened to their cries for help.
I will praise you among all the people;
I will fulfill my vows in the presence of
those who worship you.
The poor will eat and be satisfied.
All who seek the Lord will praise him.
Their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy.
The whole earth will acknowledge the
Lord and return to him.
People from every nation will bow down before him.
For the Lord is king!
He rules all the nations!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
