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 saw the sunrise and then the clouds rolled in, so now we have partially clear skies. But it is warm already, in the seventies this early, so it will be a beautiful day for Fat Tuesday.
I visited the NPR again yesterday and she was concerned about my "Botox" lips. I am, too, because I don't know what has caused the swelling, but they are kinda raw inside. I have so many allergies to different things, it is always a puzzle to figure out what is causing what. I am off all meds for the bronchitis, including cough medication, but the lips are still swollen. Cece, the nurse, liked the look. She said it reminded her of Angelina Jolie. I had to laugh at that! I am still coughing and have congestion, but feel better than last week. Cathy, the nurse wants to see me again Thursday, so I am being taken care of. For those of you who are praying I get better soon, please keep the prayers coming!
After I left the office, I treated myself to a strawberry milkshake and took it to the park to enjoy. Not too many people, but a lone seagull was perched along the railing by the lake. The oak leaves are blanketing everything in the park. They are not blown off any more because of the lack of workers. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The unfailing love of the Lord never ends!
By his mercies we have been kept
from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself,
"The Lord is my inheritance; therefore I will
hope in him!" The Lord is wonderfully
good to those who wait for him and seek him.
So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.
And it is good for the young to submit to the yoke of his discipline.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers
with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
