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! Lots of sunshine and no breeze right now, but maybe rain much later. I heard thunder last night, but no rain fell, so that is good. The pothole in front of my house is still full of water, so we are not in need of any more rain. I called the city about the pothole several months ago, and someone came out at looked at it; decided that it really was a developing pothole and left. No word or action since. Sigh.
I shopped over at Disston Shopping Plaza yesterday, before school zones were up, and, as usual, that is a busy area. I took water with me, because it is still so hot, I get really dry.
I stopped at the Park, and saw that it was freshly mowed and really looks good again. I believe that the powers that be have rethought their position about letting things go, and only mowing paths, and as a result, the park looks better and better.
I saw the brown gopher tortoise half hidden in the brush, and thought I glimpsed the darker one nearby, but could not tell. A beautiful egret was curving his neck, and was almost hidden in the bulrushes of the canal. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble.
But he keeps his distance from the proud.
Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will preserve me against the anger of my enemies.
You will clench your fist against my angry enemies!
Your power will save me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life-
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Don't abandon me, for you made me.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
