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 and probably more rumbles in the evening again, but so far, we have not had rain in this area for the past few days. However, the grass is growing fast and the staghorn fern is enormous! It loves the rain!
I had to leave my cleaning ladies to keep an appointment with my podiatrist yesterday afternoon, because it was my regular visit, but I also had a very sore spot on the bottom of my left foot. Turns out I had a tiny sliver of glass embedded in my foot, which had become infected! He put a needle in to deaden it, and dug out the glass. My foot felt much better immediately, but is still very tender. I think a tiny piece of glass from a broken plate must have slipped into my slipper and got into my foot. The plate had slipped out of the cabinet when I was putting dishes up one day last week and shattered into a hundred pieces or so! Anyway, it was good to get that taken care of.
This morning I took time to watch the Celebration of Anne Dwyer's career with Channel 13 Fox. She has been a favorite of mine for 28 years and this was her last day as she is retiring. I wish her the best!
After I left the doctor's office, yesterday, I thought I deserved a treat, so drove to Steak and Shake to get a Happy Hour milkshake, then took it to the park and sat in the shade to slurp it. Problem was; it was so thick I could not suck it through the straw. But I enjoyed looking at the very large gopher tortoise as he headed into his burrow, and the ibis and egrets pecking in the mud in the canal, which is now very low on water. But 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 how to find 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.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
