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! It looks like the same weather as yesterday, hot and humid, but then, this is summer in Florida, so that is to be expected.
My cleaning friend came by herself yesterday, since her partner was baby sitting with her grands, so we had some fun chats while she cleaned. She retired from the phone company 18 years ago, and after her divorce, formed a partnership with her next door neighbor and they have been in the house cleaning business for 18 years, setting their own hours and working as much as they want or as little as they want. They are good at what they do, and it works for them. They treat each other as family. A friendship like that is rare!
After Cheryl left I had to run some errands, and as I was coming home, I saw my neighbor was mowing his yard for the first time in a couple months. He lives in his parents house, because they built a new one and since he did not want to move, they still have this house, which the son does not take good care of. I had not seen him in person for a couple months and hardly recognized him, but at least, the yard looks better. I just see his yellow Mustang coming and going to work.
I drove over to the park, and passed under an osprey perched on a wire. They seem to be plenteous this summer. I also saw a beautiful egret and ibis with their pristine white feathers, contrasted with the green of the foliage. Very pretty! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the
advice of the wicked, or stand around with
sinners, or join in with scoffers.
But they delight in doing everything the Lord
wants; day and night they think about his law.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit each season without fail.
Their leaves never wither,
and in all they do they prosper.
But this is not true of the wicked.
They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
Sinners will have no place among the godly.
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
But the path of the wicked leads to destruction.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers wit thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
