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's a beautiful day in the neighborhood", as Mr. Rogers used to sing. Another day of Sunshine and humidity with oak seeds still falling, squirrels racing up and down the trees and across the streets; birds flying about...all things bright and beautiful!
I am grateful for the gifts of sight, hearing, feeling and breathing!
I had ordered a small pizza for delivery Saturday evening after having my haircut, and so, after church I had some more for lunch, and still had leftovers for my supper. I don't eat pizza very often, but felt hungry for it, so I indulged. It was good for a change, but probably not very healthy for me! I do try to eat salads several times a week, and other veggies.
Well, my nose is looking better , so I left it uncovered and went on to church without a bandage over it. I don't think anybody noticed it as much as when I had the band-aid on it. It seemed like there were a lot of newcomers to church yesterday; at least, I saw several people who were new to me. I did not get a chance to greet them, because of them coming in later, and me not being able to move out of my middle seat to get to them. It is good to see our attendance picking up. Pastor Kevin is a powerful speaker!
After church, I drove on to the Park, and saw lots of people enjoying a beautiful day. So many people that there were few birds or animals about. Even the squirrels were not in sight! But there were plenty around Lynch Lake Park, which is much quieter! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
How good it is to sing praises to our God!
How delightful and how right!
The Lord is rebuilding Jerusalem
and bringing the exiles back to Israel.
He heals the brokenhearted
binding up their wounds.
He counts the stars
and calls them all by name.
How great is our Lord! His power is absolute!
His understanding is beyond comprehension!
The Lord supports the humble,
but he brings the wicked down into the dust.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
