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 have another in the string of cooler, clear sky days that are so beautiful! Here it is almost the end of October and the only rain predicted is on Halloween. Maybe. Which does not bother me, since the ground is still very wet and water is still in the gutters.
Hooray for me! I purposed to go through my purses piled up in the closet yesterday, (something I had been putting off) and filled a garbage bag with them. I carefully went through each one, and found my long lost valet key in one of them. I could not imagine what had happened to it, but it had been missing for over a year or more. So, yay!
I returned some books to the library yesterday, and checked out more. But I noticed that two favorite authors of mine, only had a couple books on the shelf, which I had already read. I think it must have been due to the Festival of Reading presented by the Times on Saturday. Those particular authors were present for the book signing. But I can always wait until the books get back on the shelves.
After I left the library, I drove to the park and saw quite a few people for early afternoon. I also noticed a very large egret near the weir and one down in the canal near the first bridge. He was very near an ibis which was walking on the muddy bank. Also, the large brown gopher and the baby gopher were munching their ways around the areas where the tunnel is. Also in the area of people watching, I saw a young woman (girl) get out of a car with her boyfriend (?) and she had spike heels with sparkles with straps wrapped around her ankles and was wearing shorts. For walking in the park? To each his own! But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
1 Chronicles 16:31-36
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice!
Tell all the nations that the Lord is king.
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst forth with joy!
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise before the Lord!
For he is coming to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Cry out, "Save us. O God of our salvation!
Gather and rescue us from among the nations.
so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you."
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel.
from everlasting to everlasting!
And all the people shouted "Amen!" and
praised the Lord.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
