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! Just like yesterday, we have sun and a little breeze, but we had a fierce thunderstorm in the afternoon!
My handyman, Rick, was power washing the house when the storm came up, and he did not stop. By the time he got to the driveway, the rain was slanting because the wind was blowing so strongly. I was afraid he was going to get hit by lightning, but he kept on working and was soaking wet! He said it didn't bother him, but it bothered me to see him in the rain. I must say the house looks really good, now. Dirt and cobwebs gone..looks almost like a new paint job.
Before Rick started on the house I had him work on my shower, which only had a trickle coming out of the hose. He discovered it was stopped up with residue from hard water, and this morning I was able to enjoy a full stream of water, but then suddenly it stopped, and now, hardly any water is coming out. So I called Rick, but he is out at the beaches today, so I called the plumber and hopefully he will be able to fix it permanently!
After Rick left, I did some shopping, and stopped at the Park to see more water in the canal, and a few people enjoying the aftermath of the rain Just a few ibis were around and, of course, the squirrels. I guess they just get in the trees and hang on during a strong storm! Just like the ones in my trees! But, as always, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
My heart is confident in you, O God;
no wonder I can sing your praises!
Wake up, my soul!
Wake up, O harp and lyre!
I will waken the dawn with my song!
I will thank you, Lord, in front of all the people.
I will sing your praises among the nations.
For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens.
May your glory shine over all the earth.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy
Love and hugs,
