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! Well, just as predicted, the weather is warming up. I discarded my blanket for most of last night, and although the A/C has not cycled on yet, it is still a little cool, but comfortable in the house. And, yesterday, was hot in the sun! But, I appreciate any change in the humidity!
The TECO people came yesterday and walked up and down the property for about thirty minutes and one super talked on the phone during that time, but nothing got done. I don't know what the problem is, but hopefully, they will get the new gas line installed sometime soon.
I had an appointment at the Pierce Clinic in the afternoon, so, after a short wait, which I used Texting back and forth with Daryl about the Gators football situation, got called back to the exam room, where I waited flat on my back for another five or ten minutes. I have suggested to the nurse that they post a poster of a hunky guy on the ceiling, but no action has been taken yet. Sigh.
I drove on to the park and saw a few people out walking, and an egret in the canal with a lone ibis pecking around the bank, but on the way around Lynch Lake Park, there was a gorgeous roseate spoonbill standing on the bank, just stretching. A lot of seagulls, and ducks were also enjoying the afternoon. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart.
I will sing your praises before the gods.
i bow before your holy Temple as I worship.
I will give thanks to your name
for your unfailing love and faithfulness,
because your promises are backed by all the
honor of your name.
When I pray you answer me.
You encourage me by giving me the strength I need.
Every king in all the earth, will give you thanks, O Lord.
For all of them will hear your words.
Yes, they will sing about the Lord's ways,
for the glory of the Lord is very great.
Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble,
but he keeps his distance from the proud.
Though I am surrounded by troubles,
you will preserve me against my angry enemies!
Your power will save me.
The Lord will work out his plans for my life----
for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever.
Don't abandon me, for you made me.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
