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! The sun is shining now, but the sky was overcast a few minutes ago and water is still dripping off the roof. So I don't know whether it is from the rain last night or if we had a shower early this morning, We had a thunderstorm last night again, in this area , but it was not raining downtown, so it is still scattered thunderstorms in the forecast!
My cleaning ladies came much earlier yesterday than they had planned, so it was good to see them. I always catch up on where they have lunch. They check out all the sandwich shops, but did not know that Earl of Sandwich was open on 4th St. so I will let them check it out before I go. I showed them the group photo of all the graduates who attended the reunion last Friday and they thought everyone looked pretty good considering our advanced years.
I have what I think is a dead anole in my bathroom. He has been there for about three days, and was scooting around the room. I told him he better not come into the bedroom or be in the middle of the floor if I had to get up in the night. But now he has been in the same position for several hours and I think it is curtains for him R. I. P. anole!
I made my way to Wendy's later for a baked potato and Strawberry Fields salad. The potato I ate for my supper and I will have the salad for lunch today. It was worth going through the construction, (destruction) going on at 83rd and 9th St. Looks like that will going on for a good long while!
Then I took a trip to the Park and saw a feathery egret and one in the canal. I also saw three ospreys sitting on a wire at Lynch Lake Park. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How Am I supposed to plan my life?
My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your
ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for
insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for
lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what
it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God.
For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge
and understanding . He grants a treasure of good sense to the
godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity.
He guards the paths of justice and protects those who are faithful
to him. Then you will understand what is right, just and fair and
you will know the right course of action every time. For wisdom
will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Wise
planning will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.
A plan is only as good as the information upon which it's based. Our
human intellect is limited and inadequate. Apart from the Lord, our
plans are liable to fail. The Lord promises wisdom to those who rely
on his Word and depend on his spirit.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
