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! Cool temps down to 68 this morning! Whoo Hoo! Never thought I would see this in the middle of May! Lots of sunshine and very cool for me, that is. I know some people really like the coolness, but I get chilled easily and like the warmth.

After the nice hard rain shower yesterday, the sun came out, so I went to pick up the book I had ordered from the library, along with other books, and then visited the park, to find it almost deserted. The ibis and squirrels were busy looking for food, but not many visitors were there.

On my way back, I stopped in at Audibel to buy some more batteries for my aids. They last just a week. I can almost tell when the deep voice will say in my ear, "Battery". First it was Thurs. to Thurs, now it is Sat. to Sat. Can't explain why it changed. Sigh.

Well, I am ignoring the plaintive call of my ironing, because I have a book waiting, the birds are singing their little throats out this morning, so loudly I can hear them inside the house, and it is just too nice to spend the time ironing. Besides, I haven't run out of clothes yet! But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ecclesiastes 3:9-15

What do people really get for all their hard work? I have
thought about this in connection with the various kinds of
work God has given people to do .
God has made everything beautiful for its own time.
He has Planted eternity in the human heart, but even so,
people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from
beginning to end. So I concluded that there is nothing
better for people to be happy and to enjoy themselves
as long as they can. And people should eat and drink
and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.

And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be
added to it or taken from it. God's purpose in this is that
people should fear him. Whatever exists today and whatever
will exist in the future has already existed in the past. For
God calls each even back in its turn.

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

Love and hugs,
