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! I am running late this morning, first, because I took my time with my shower and breakfast, and second, because my pest control man came, so I had to wait for him.
But, it is a beautiful morning and surprisingly, a little cooler! I expect leaves to start falling off the trees any day now, even though we are still expecting nineties later on.
I got out to do a little grocery shopping yesterday and found guava preserves at Sweetbay, but they still do not have canned guava shells. Just as well, I suppose, since they are packed in heavy syrup, but they are so good! With cream cheese and saltine crackers! Yum! One of my all time favorite desserts!
After shopping, I drove to the park and discovered the mowers were busy, one with a large trash can attached to his large mower. One of the workers has cleaned out the canal, so it looks much better. Since the mowers were out, I did not see the gophers, but the ibis were busy in the circle, pecking and moving, as usual. They sometimes land in a large flock right in my front yard and then move slowly down the block, pecking as they go. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord is faithful in all he says,
he is gracious in all he does.
The Lord helps the fallen
and lifts up those bent beneath their loads.
All eyes look to you for help,
and you give them their food as they need it.
When you open your hand,
you satisfy the hunger and thirst of
every living thing.
The Lord is righteous is everything he
does, he is filled with kindness.
The Lord is close to all who call on him,
yes, to all who call on him sincerely.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cries for help and rescues them.
The Lord protects all those who love him,
and he destroys the wicked.
I will praise the Lord
and everyone on earth will bless his holy name
forever and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers
with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
