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! It was a little chilly this morning, down in the fifties, but now the sun is shining and we will have a beautiful day! We must have gotten all our rain during the night on Wednesday, because I did not hear a thing, but as I was driving across town, I saw lots of water in retention ponds and rows of leaves that had been washed from the gutters. I slept through it! This is great weather for the State Fair going on now, but my days of fair going are over. The one thing I miss are the corn dogs!
My PC was hit by a virus, so I did not have it on all day yesterday, until Dave, the computer guy came and cleaned it up. He is really good at what he does!
This is a day of remembrance for me and my sons. Louis would have been 88 today! He is waiting for me to join him and our daughter, which I will sooner or later!
I was bold enough to drive across town and get my hair done, which really needed it, and, having gone to the Library, have some books to read. I am still getting stronger, so I should be at church Sunday. It is supposed to be a beautiful day.
I was thinking of all the ways I have been blessed lately and there are too many to count. From the nurses and all the help at the hospital, to the caregivers service at home...different personalities, accents and countries of origin, and stories of what brought them here. It opened up my world a little more. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How does the promise of blessing affect us when we are weary or discouraged?
1 Corinthians 15:57-58
How we thank God. who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord! So, my brothers and sisters, be strong and steady, always enthusiastic about the Lord's work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
Don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up. for we reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. When we are tempted to give up, new resolve comes from remembering that God promises to bring a harvest in his perfect time.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
