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! Well, the people in the Panhandle counties are not rejoicing,.
I was looking at the weather maps on TV on the news...20 inches in 24 hours has resulted in roads washed out, houses flooded, lots of cars lost due to washed out roads and a state of emergency has been declared by the governor, for Pensacola and surrounding counties. Tallahassee has also been getting heavy rain. Looks like it is heading east so, hopefully, we will escape.
I see another eating place has closed. I drove by Jack's English pub yesterday, and saw that the windows had brown paper covering them. That place in the converted Pizza Hut building did not last long! It is really tough for a restaurant to keep going, unless it is really good.
I made a trip to the library and noticed some more homeless men hanging around. They like to go there for the shade and to rest, and use the facilities. One was on the bench in front and the other was on the bench right beside where I parked. A security guard was posted inside at one point, but apparently these men mean no harm. I'm sure each one has an interesting life story. It would be good to hear from some of them...
I went on to the Park and watched the dog walkers and ibis and egrets walking in the water on a very warm day. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Paul's Final Instructions
1 Timothy 6:17-19
Tell those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to
trust in their money, which will soon be gone. But their trust
should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our
enjoyment . Tell them to use their money to do good. They should
be rich in good works and should give generously to those in need,
always being ready to share with others whatever God has given
them. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a
good foundation for the future so that they may take hold of real life.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
P.S. I was mistaken about Jack's Pub being closed. They are very much open. It is the building next door that is closed with paper over the windows1 Sorry for the mistake!
Love and hugs,
