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! Lots of white, puffy clouds and sunshine are what is greeting us today, with no rain, but maybe a shower here and there later on.
The good news is that gas prices are still going down; even under $3 in Cleveland, TN.
I have to do a fill-up today, so I am hoping to find lower gas prices when I go.
We had a dynamic sermon yesterday from Dr. Keith Hamilton, the pres. and founder of Alaska Christian College. I have heard him speak before, as a guest at my church, and always look forward to hearing him. He has a heart for God and it shows in his work and family.
I was escorted in to my seat by my friend, Dan, which always warms my heart. Then I got to chat with a couple more friends before church started. Good friends. God's love, and good preaching and good singing. It was a blessed day!
I still have the anole living in my bathroom. He greeted me Saturday in the shower again, and I was able to chase him out. Then when I walked in Sunday, there he was again, on the floor. I really don't know what he is eating, because there is nothing in there in the way of food. If I were bolder, I would catch him and escort him out!
Later in the afternoon, yesterday, I drove over to the Park, tired of watching the Rays lose, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The only animals I saw beside the squirrels, were the human kind. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Praise the Lord, I tell myself.
I will praise the Lord as long as I live.
I will sing praises to my God even with my dying
Don't put your confidence in powerful people,
there is no help for you there.
When their breathing stops, they return to the earth,
and in a moment all their plans come to an end.
But happy are those who have the God of Israel
as their helper, who hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the one who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them.
He is the one who keeps every promise forever.
Who gives justice to the oppressed
and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts the burdens of those
bent beneath their loads.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He cares for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever,
O Jerusalem, Your God is King in every generation!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
