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! What a storm we had last night! It just hung over this area for over half an hour and the thunder boomed and lightning struck, the lights kept flickering and some of the lights went out in the Trop, delaying the ball game for about thirty minutes!
I have seen many photos of the large waterspout that was seen by many people as they crossed over Gandy Bridge. Fortunately, it did not come ashore that I know of. I expected Jason, my yard man to come today, but since the yard is so wet, he may postpone mowing until tomorrow.
I drove out to Walmart to gas the car up yesterday, and was pleased to see they are the lowest in this area as far as price goes. As usual, the Walmart parking lot looked full. They still do a large business! Afterwards, I went into the park and saw a graceful ibis take off with wings outspread and looking very Floridaish. Also, an egret was bending its crooked neck down toward the water, looking for a snack. Beautiful enough for a painting! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I look up to the mountains---
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made the heavens and the earth!
He will not let you stumble and fall;
the one who watches over you will not sleep.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never tires and never sleeps.
The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not hurt you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord keeps you from all evil
and preserves your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you
as you come and go
both now and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my
prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
