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, rain and more rain. I never expected this for today, but I woke up about 4 and heard the solid sound of a downpour, then caught a flash of lightning, so I rolled over for another couple hours of rest!
My paper was not in the chair today, no surprise, since it must have been pouring when the carrier came. So I waited until after my shower to go fetch it from the driveway. By the way, while I was in the shower, the power went off, so since there was a little daylight coming in the window, I just went on showering until I was finished. The lights came on a few minutes later.
I stripped the bed and got the sheets in the washing machine, and discovered while I was in the garage that I have a water leak down by the overhead door. I cannot figure out where the water is coming from, since it is on the floor against the wall for a short ways. All in all, it has been an interesting morning...Can't wait for the rest of the day!
Yesterday, I drove to the bank and to the Library. One of the newer librarians is young and very thoughtful. She takes the returned books out of my bag, and when I check out, she puts them in the bag for me. In contrast, the rumpled looking guy that works there, puts them to the opposite side when he checks them, instead of putting them on the other side where I could bag them as he checks. Then he has to wait while I put them in my tote.Sigh.But, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord is my light and my salvation--
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord protects me from danger--
so why should I tremble?
When evil people come to destroy me,
when my enemies and foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
Though a mighty army surrounds me,'
my heart will know no fear,
even if they attack me.
I remain confident.
The one thing I ask of the Lord--
the thing I seek most--
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life .
Delighting in the Lord's perfections and
meditating in his Temple.
For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
Then I will hold my head high
above my enemies who surround me.
At his tabernacle I will offer sacrifices
with shouts of joy,
singing and praising the Lord with music.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
