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! Surprise! No rain early this morning. We not only had a heavy shower early yesterday, but when I went out about 4, all at once a heavy rain came down over just a couple streets...long enough to get the car pretty wet and I had to turn the wipers and lights on. But the shower was just a few blocks wide. I always said, it can rain on one side of the street and not the other, and that seems to be true!

But it was already very warm early, so summer is still here. When I went outside late last night, the air seemed to have a little bit of fall in it, though, so maybe it won't be long...

I got a lot of things done yesterday that I had been putting off, like ironing, ugh, but also, laundry, and other uninteresting but necessary chores. I still made time to read, and watched part of the Rays game which did not come on until 10 PM! which is too late for me!

I saw the brown gopher again at the park. He seems to be bolder about coming out of his tunnel, but maybe I have been going over there at the right time. There were quite a few people sitting on benches or just enjoying the views in the late afternoon. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 40:28-31

Have you never heard or understood?  Don't you know that the Lord is the
everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth?
He never grows faint or weary. No one can measure the depths of his
understanding . He gives power to those who are tired
and worn out. He offers strength to the weak. Even youths will
become exhausted, and young men will give up. But those who
wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings
like eagles. They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

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

Love and hugs,
