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 day is starting out overcast, but that is good because that means the heat is not so intense. Looks like the Tropical Storm, Arthur, will not affect us much , since it is moving on up to the Outer Banks.
I have to do my grocery shopping today, so I need to get going, I wait until I am almost out of everything before I go, which means I always have a big load to unload and put away when I get home! Maybe I should just shop more frequently and buy smaller amounts. Sigh.
After my girls got through cleaning yesterday, I kept watching the Rays sweep the Yankees and then went out to buy my supper and take a trip through the Park. I saw the roseate spoonbill in the canal near the entrance and a couple of ibis. The park is open until 9 PM,, now, which means the workers get home late.
I have noticed lots of mockingbirds diving in and out of the hedge next door, which is full of berries right now. Totally inedible to us, but apparently the mockers think they are a delicacy, because that is what they are after! But, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do as though
you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance
as your reward and the Master you are serving is Christ.
But if you do what is wrong you will be paid back for the
wrong you have done. For God has no favorites who can
get away with evil.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
