The Beatitudes

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! Our beautiful fall weather continues with sunshine and cooler air, but more humidity today. I will be surprised when the cold weather comes next week, because of the change from A/C to heat!

This is in the small world dept; yesterday my pest control man came, (he is third generation of the independent outfit I have used for years) and he brought a friend who is partnering with him in the business. The partner is the grandson of a pharmacist I used to know at Galen's drug store fifty years ago, when my sons were babies! Another third generation!  As I said; it is a small world!

I had an appointment with my audiologist at 3 PM yesterday, and arrived a few minutes before, but had to wait for over an hour before I was seen because the previous patient was late. All actions have consequences! It was so cold inside that I went out for about ten minutes to warm up. I should always carry a sweater in the car! My audiologist is a young strawberry blond man who is very kind and gentle handling old geezers. He has two little girls, 3 and not yet one year old, and a very pretty wife. I have known Keith for over three years, and really like him, but he needs to keep his office a little warmer!

After I thawed out, I drove on to the park and watched an egret and squirrels scampering up trees and across the road. Several people were enjoying the sun, the views, and one man was reclining on a blanket on the hill beside the canal. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Matthew 5:2
God blesses those who realize their need for him.
for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them.
God blesses those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
God blesses those who are gentle and lowly
for the whole earth will belong to them.
God blesses those who are hungry and
thirsty for justice,
for they will receive it in full.
God blesses those who are merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
God blesses those whose hearts are pure
for they will see God.
God blesses those who work for peace,
for they will be called the children of God.
God blesses those who are persecuted
because they live for God,
 for the Kingdom if Heaven is theirs.

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

Love and hugs,
