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! What a contrast today's weather is, compared to yesterday! Lots of sun and cool temps...I keep thinking we have the last cool or cold front come through, and then another one pops up! It was actually about 57 outdoors, so I guess that would be warm if one lived in Chicago or other northern places! To me, it is cool!
Well, I got on the scales last night and discovered one of the five pounds of fluid that had accumulated in my body was gone, so today I was hoping for more. When I checked this morning four more were gone, so I am almost back to normal, if I don't pack on more today! PTL!
My cleaning ladies came yesterday instead of today, because one of them had a doctor's visit today, which could not be rescheduled. That was fine with me, so I had a clean house and they finished just as the heavy rain started.
I took a trip over to the park later on in the afternoon, just to get out of the house for awhile. Very few people were there because of the threatening clouds, but I saw the anhinga resting on the weir, and a beautiful sight of about three or four egrets in the dark, muddy canal, pecking around and looking for snacks. Then, just beneath the first bridge, the roseate spoonbill was creating a Kodak moment for onlookers hanging over the bridge. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
A Single day in your courts is
better than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.
For the Lord God is our light and protector.
He gives us grace and glory.
No good thing will the Lord withhold
from those who do what is right.
O Lord Almighty, happy are those who trust in you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
