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! I went to sleep last night with the sound of thunder in my ears and this morning already, I hear more thunder. But the sun is shining, also, so this is typical Florida summer weather!
I went shopping yesterday afternoon, after putting it off as long as I could, but I have been gradually cleaning out a closet and needed to replace some T-shirts. I took a 10 dollar off coupon from the paper, got senior 15% off, so I found what I wanted, and saved a bundle! Oh, and everything was on sale, so I actually did not pay full price for anything! My kind of shopping!
After I finished shopping, I drove to Chick-f.a. and bought a salad to have for supper, since it was almost 4:30. I also visited the park on the way, and saw an anhinga with tail drooping on the weir. An egret was flying down the canal, and I saw the splash of another one catching a fish from the sparse water in the canal. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my every thought when far away.
You chart the path ahead of me
and tell me where to stop and rest.
Every moment you know where I am.
You know what I am going to say
even before I know it, Lord.
You both precede and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.
Too great for me to know.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
