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 had rain already! We are below normal in our rainfall for the month of March, so it was very welcome since the pollen in the air will be cleared for awhile. The clouds are still over head, so we may get more, hopefully.
I have a dental appointment this afternoon, clear across town, so maybe the rain will stop by then. I had a nice, quiet weekend, just doing some shopping and reading. I stopped at the Library and was surprised to find it so empty. Very few people were there, but then lots is going on and this was Saturday. I was a bit puzzled to find a small poster on the counter that said they would be closed on Easter Sunday. They are always closed on Sunday!??
I have another large anole in the house. I saw him by the front door Sat. and told him not to go any further, but he did not listen to me and the next time I saw him, he was looking at himself in the mirrored shower door in the bathroom. He was perched on the bar, across the mirrored panel, then he tried to hide from me, by ducking inside it, but he was reflected clearly. Ha! As I moved toward him, he dashed across to the wall, and was hiding behind a towel. No telling where he is now!
We heard a good sermon from our founding pastor, Don Logue, yesterday at church. He told some funny stories, and then made some good points about prayer. It is always good to hear him, and the people who come from St. James in the good old days, to hear him. Those were the days!
But I will be glad to hear Pastor Kevin when he comes back from his trip. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will praise the Lord at all times,
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord;
let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come let us tell of the Lord's greatness;
let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the Lord and he answered me,
freeing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
I cried out to the Lord in my suffering and he heard me.
He set me free from all my fears.
For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him.
And he rescues them.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
