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! Rain has finally started dripping off the roof, and thunder is still rumbling in the distance, so no sunshine right now, but there was earlier and will be again, I'm sure. Then it will be so humid it will be like a sauna!
Yesterday was a big day for my sister, Marilyn. We celebrated her 90th birthday by having lunch at Cracker Barrel with nieces and our sister-in-law. It was a fun, catching up time, with family news passed around. We all live in Pinellas County, but, unfortunately, seldom get together like we should. Phones, emails and Facebook have taken us all over, but personal contact is, and always will be, the best!
The rain started really coming down just about fifteen minutes before I left for the lunch, but by the time I arrived, it was just sprinkling a little bit, so I did not even need an umbrella. The restaurant was not crowded, so we were able to hear each other talk; and there was a lot of it!
After I left, I stopped at Audibel and bought some more batteries, then visited the park, to find all was quiet, with no animals and not many people present. But I always appreciate that this place of peace is so close to home. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
2 Corinthians 3:16-18
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord
then the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is
the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord
is, he gives freedom. And all of us have had
that veil removed so that we can be mirrors
that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord.
And as the Spirit of the Lord works within
us, we become more and more like him and
reflect his glory even more.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
