Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will be glad and rejoice in it! Our warm weather continues with sun and clouds and a slight breeze. The wind from yesterday has died down, but the warm weather continues. Great!
All the acorns and leaves that the yard guys blew off Monday are gradually coming back on the porch. Sometimes the acorns hurt when they land on my head! I was backing the car out of the garage yesterday and one hit the roof, making a very loud noise and startling me!
Well, yesterday afternoon, I had a mystery going. I heard beeps and knew the kitchen smoke detector was going out. Since I can't reach it to change the battery, I knew i would have to wait for Brian to stop by after work, Well, I came back to the bedroom and the beep was louder...still louder in the hallway. I looked and looked for one on the wall, but could not find one. By that time I was about to go bonkers from all the beeps! When Brian came, he changed the battery in the kitchen and bedroom, (two 9 volts were all I had) and then we started the hunt for the rest of the beeping detectors..found one in the sewing room, and two in the hall closet! A total of five! All beeping intermittently all over the house! Plus, the garage door opener in the van also has a weak battery. Guess the firefighters know what they are talking about when they put out the sign, "Change clocks, Change batteries!")
I got to the park yesterday and found a freshly mowed, clean looking park, with a few people enjoying the great weather and exercise. One ibis was all the wildlife I saw, but all was quietl and peaceful. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Praise the Lord!
Happy are those who fear the Lord.
Yes, happy are those who delight in
doing what he commands.
Their children will be successful everywhere,
an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
They themselves will be wealthy,
and their good deeds will never be forgotten.
When darkness overtakes the godly,
light will come bursting in.
They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
All goes well for those who are generous
who lend freely and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil circumstances.
Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
They do not fear bad news,
they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
They are confident and fearless
and can face their foes triumphantly.
They give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will never be forgotten
They will have influence and honor.
The wicked will be infuriated when they see this.
They will grind their teeth in anger.
They will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
