A Prayer of Praise

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! We are starting the day with sunshine and probably no rain. Last evening I saw on TV that so far this July we have had over 12 inches of rain, which has set a record. If we have no more for the rest of the month, we will still be at the norm for July!

I think the bunny likes the wet grass, because I saw him once again in the side yard munching on the wet grass or weeds. and the mockingbirds are loving the berries on the podacarpus hedge. Either the same ones are flying in and grabbing a berry or several different ones are plucking them off. They must have a nest nearby and open beaks to stuff full.

Well, my neighbors took off for a vacation in north Ga. this morning. They are my cleaning ladies, so they bumped me up, with my permission, to clean on Tues. instead of Wed. this week. They will be gone a week, and I am sure they need the rest...One husband, two sisters, and Cheryl and lots of luggage were waiting for the Super Shuttle around 7 AM. I hope they have a good time!  Cheryl had called last night to ask me to keep an eye on things for them, which I will try to do.

I enjoyed a quiet day yesterday thinking about a great-niece undergoing basic training at Lackland AFB and a great- nephew facing rehab in the northeast. They are about the same age, and the choices they make affect the rest of their lives. I pray for both that they will become very wise and for their salvation, because God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Jude 24-25
And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep you
from stumbling, and who will bring you into his
glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy.
All glory to him, who alone is God our Savior, through
Jesus Christ, our Lord. Yes, glory, majesty, power, and
authority belong to him, in the beginning, now and
forevermore. Amen.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers
with thanksgiving, joy and love.

Love and hugs,
