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 sun and a few puffy clouds this morning, just like yesterday. Although, in the late afternoon I saw the massive piling up of the storm clouds, but nothing happened around here. Cloud formations are so interesting and vary so much, I enjoy looking at them.
Well, along with many others, I stayed up until I was part of the celebration of the Rays victory over the Rangers! What a game! and then, the celebration with the champagne and beer flowing in the clubhouse! Glad I don't have to clean that mess up! Even Todd Kallas got drenched! Now, on to the Indians!
I am expecting my new yard man this morning since he did not come yesterday. He said they fell behind because of the rain last week. So, he is here now, and I just gave him his check. Now, I have to call a tree trimmer because the oaks have grown so much this year, some of the branches are hanging down too far. Always something going on in the yard...sigh.
I drove to the park yesterday, and saw a few more people there. out enjoying the sun and animals. A few ibis were pecking around and a white egret was silhouetted against the dark green foliage. looking like a painting. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Does God really have a plan for my life?
Psalm 139:3 You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where
to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am.
Psalm 32:8 The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best
pathway for your life and will advise you and watch over you."
Psalm 138:8 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.
God has a plan for our lives. It is not an unthinking, automated
script that we must follow. It is a journey with various destinations
and appointments and a great deal of freedom as to the pace
and scope of the travel. God's plan for us will always have a
sense of mystery, but we can be certain that he will guide us as
long as we rely on his leading.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, love and joy!
Love and hugs,
