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! More sun this morning with the thundershowers moving to late afternoon, although we did not get a drop yesterday.
Well, I spent a lot of time on the phone yesterday, moving appointments around. I did not go to the dentist after all, since I had another plumbing problem and had to wait for Inman's to get here Looks like I may or may not, have to have the Orangeburg pipe replaced. Depending on what the city says. The blockage may be on the city line and not mine. Sigh." This old house", as Rosemary Clooney used to sing. One repair after another! Now, My doorbell does not work any more!
So...all I did yesterday was laundry and wait; but I did get to notice squirrels and birds in my own yard, so wildlife is always near. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT, God offers comfort to all:
2nd Corinthians 1:3-7
All praise to the God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ. He is the source of every mercy
and the God who comforts us. He comforts us
in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.
When others are troubled, we will be able to give
them the same comfort God has given us. You can
be sure that the more we suffer for Christ, the more
God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.
So when we are weighed down with troubles, it is
for your benefit and salvation! For when God comforts
us, it is so that we, in turn, can be an encouragement
to you. Then you can patiently endure the same things
we suffer. We are confident that as you share in
suffering, you will also share God's comfort.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
