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! Sunshine and warm breezes..a continuing pattern for the weather lately, with thundershowers coming in the late afternoon. They will probably shift over to morning showers sometime in the future if memory serves me correctly. At least that's the way it has happened in the past.
My day did not go as planned yesterday, at least according to my plans. I had made out my list for groceries, and got to Publix later than I wanted. By the time I arrived home and put the groceries away, it was too late and I was too tired to attend the strawberry social at church that I was very much looking forward to. I was disappointed. But, I bought some very tasty cranberry orange scones and had a cup of tea in the afternoon, which made me feel better about it.
When I opened the garage door yesterday, the black garden snake that lives around here, was just slithering across the driveway, in front of the door, and a bluejay was dive bombing the snake. Bluejays are not nice birds! The snake slithered away into a large shrub and the bird gave up. Drama at the Green house! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,,
and there are no grapes on the vine; even
though the olive crop fails and the fields lie
empty and barren, even though the flocks die
in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. The
Sovereign Lord is my strength! He will make
me as surefooted as a deer and bring me safely
over the mountains.
I always thank God for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
