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 had some rain last night. I could tell because the porch was wet this morning. Right now it is overcast, but I didn't think there would be any rain according to the forecast, but maybe this is our "cold front" that was predicted yesterday, Smile.
Yesterday, after I washed a load of towels, I purposed to go to Publix and get some much needed groceries. I only shop about every two weeks, so I am usually out of stuff by then. My list was not so long, but I still had a lot of bags by the time I was through. I usually take my cloth bags and insulated bag in because it saves having all those plastic ones. Anyway, it was a good time to go, because there were not many people shopping, but my goodness, when I got out of the van, it was HOT! The sun was beating down, and by the time I got home and got the groceries unloaded, I was perspiring a little!
Before I went for groceries, I had driven to Walmart for gas and was happy and surprised to see the price was 3.19 per gal. With my card, it was 3.14. Daryl says it is 3.09 in Cleveland, TN, but we never get down that low.
I have seen some unusual butterflies flitting by my window this week. Yesterday, a small black and white striped one fluttered by , but I don't know the name. And there is a gorgeous purple blossoming tree a couple houses north of me, but I don't know the name of it, either. But, God is good to put all that beauty out and my eyes for me to see!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Romans 15:7-9 15:13
So accept each other just as Christ has accepted
you; then God will be glorified. Remember that
Christ came as a servant to the Jews to show that
God is true to the promises he made to their
ancestors. And he came so the Gentiles might also give
glory to God for his mercies to them. That is what
the psalmist meant when he wrote.
"I will praise you among the Gentiles;
I will sing praises to your name."
So I pray that God, who gives you hope,
will keep you happy and full of peace
as you believe in him. May you overflow
with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
