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, no sunshine this morning...as I sit here I can see rain dripping off the roof and it has gotten very dark, I have been hearing thunder for the last hour or so and we have had a severe weather alert, but there is no wind right now. My front yard is still a mess from the last storm. I guess when my yard man said he would come as soon as he could, he meant his regular Monday time. Sigh.
But we need the rain, so I am not complaining. After my cleaning ladies left yesterday, I went to Publix for my groceries, and it was a good time to go. It was not very crowded, so I had a good time shopping, but had to get help to reach a large bottle of Dawn. Apparently, I am not the only one who uses it, because it was at the very back of the top shelf.Shorties can't reach that high!
I pulled out a treasure chest of old photographs from my mother's collection, that had not been looked at since her death. Oh, my! One of me at 19 months, with my sister, 4. My face cannot be seen, because I am standing in front of a white house, and since, I was a tow-head, I kinda blended with the background. I have only seen a couple baby pics of me because I was a second child, so they did not waste film on me. Nowadays, every day of a child's life is recorded on an iphone, it seems, which is great. There are only a couple pics of my brother as a baby, also, so my sister got all the glory! That's the perc of being a first child!
Well, the lights just flickered and another weather alert just came in, so I had better finish up while we have power. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
To the faithful, you show yourself faithful,
to those with integrity, you show integrity.
To the pure, you show yourself pure,
but to the wicked, you show yourself hostile.
You rescue those who are humble, but you
humiliate the proud.
Lord, you have brought light to my life;
my God, you light up my darkness.
In your strength I can crush an army,
with my God I can scale any wall.
As for God, his way is perfect.
All the Lord's promises prove true.
He is a shield for all those who look to him for protection.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
