A Prayer of Praise

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! Wow! What a thunderstorm we had last night! That was so noisy with lightning and thunder, it just hung around for over half an hour and I was praying that the lightning would not strike the trees out front! I did not turn the TV on because it is best to have all things turned off during a storm like that, but fortunately, the lights did not go out. It was still daylight, though, so I would not have had to use my LED candles. Hopefully, we will not have such a violent storm later today!

I opened the mailbox yesterday checking to see of the mail had come, and there was the tree frog plastered against the side inside! I don't know how he managed to get in, because when the lid is closed, it is pretty tight. I told him he was going to get clonked with mail if he did not move, but I don't know if he paid any attention to me or not.

I went shopping at Publix right after lunch, before school let out, and, even though it was not raining yet, the sun was blazing hot! I heard the heat index was over a 100 yesterday. I saw two men, formerly from church, got to speak to one, who looked at me so strangely, like he did not know who I was, even though we have known each other over thirty years. Maybe he was having a senior moment.

But then, I drove on to the park where it was shady and cooler, saw the canal was very high, and a few people were out in the heat, walking and jogging. I noticed the moorhen in the water on the lilies, and the squirrels scampering about. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Jude 1:24
And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep
you from stumbling, and who will bring you into
his glorious presence innocent of all sin and with
great joy. All glory to him, who alone is God our
Savior, through Jesus Christ , our Lord. Yes, glory,
majesty, power and authority belong to him, in the
beginning, now and forevermore.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
