Roamin' thru Romans

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! The days are getting shorter, so the sun is coming up later than a few weeks ago, so when I roll out of bed around 6:30 or so, it is still dark outside (and inside). But the air is cooler morning, and evening, and that is a good thing! Beautiful weather!

Well, I was hoping the Tigers would win yesterday, but one run won the game and that was the only run the whole game! I wanted Justin Verlander to win, since the Rays did not make it. But, it won't change the rotation of the earth if they don't and there will still be beans in Boston. But I was disappointed, just the same!

I finally started out to get a new shower hose for my shower, and drove down 28th St. for a change. Should have gone down 34th St. I got behind a guy on a motor scooter, and while he drove a bit slower than the speed limit, I had to follow him all the way to Central Plaza where he turned in at the exact same place where I was going! I thought I had lost him at one point, but I think he turned off and went a different way for a couple blocks.

After calling Daryl, for information, I made my purchase at Ferguson's and on the way home on 34th St. drove by the scene of a serious accident. One person was already on a gurney and it looked like another one on the median ground. Lots of emergency vehicles were surrounding the area and traffic was backed up southbound for blocks! I was happy to be northbound...

I drove into the park on my way home, and saw an anhinga on the weir, and squirrels scampering in the freshly cut grass. Quite a few people were enjoying the beautiful weather and the peacefulness and beauty of the park. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

 Romans 8:24-28
Now that we are saved, we eagerly look forward to
this freedom. For if you already have something,
you don't need to hope for it. But if we look forward
to something we don't have yet, we must wait
patiently and confidently.

And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we
don't even know what we should pray for , nor how
we should pray, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with
groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And
the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit
is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us  believers in
harmony with God's own will. And we know that God
causes everything to work together for the good of
those who love God and are called according to his
purpose for them.

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

Love and hugs,
