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! We have not had any rainstorms for three days! But the water is still draining out of the yards and is in the gutters in the street, so we don't need any rain for awhile.
My yard man is at work right now, so I will have to go in a few minutes...
We had a large crowd at church yesterday at both services because of the three women who gave their testimonies. All three were friends who run, and each had different stories to tell about their journeys through difficulties in their lives, including the heartbreaking story of losing a husband because he was killed in his service as a law officer.
I even saw the former mayor in attendance, but did not get to speak with him.
Well, back again, after chatting with Jason for a few minutes. He was in a hurry to get to his chiropractor app't. Jason was dripping wet already because it is so humid today, Not so hot, yet, but very humid. He had already done three yards before mine.
Well, I woke up with a really red eye yesterday and was going to call the doctor about it, but it feels better today, although it still does not look so good. I will still call the doctor, though.
I drove to the park after church and saw the water had been up and over the weir from the very heavy rain we had last week, The water is very high in the canal. Everything looks green and is growing fast! There is a lady who rides her three wheeler, which has a cover for shade and she pedals on the wrong side of the road. I almost ran into her yesterday, because she was in the shade and coming right at me. She apparently does not know she should be on the other side. But, anyway, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens.
You have done such wonderful things.
who can compare with you, O God?
You have allowed me to suffer such hardship,
but you will restore me to life again
and lift me up from the depths of the earth.
You will restore me to even greater honor,,
and comfort me once again.
Then I will praise you with music on the harp,
because you are faithful to your promises O God.
I still sing for you with a lyre.
O Holy one of Israel.
I will shout for joy and sing your praises,
for you have redeemed me.
I will tell about your righteous deeds all
day long, for everyone who tried to hurt me
has been shamed and humiliated.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
