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! After a very warm day of sun and breezes, last night lots of thunder, lightning and rain fell in some areas. I heard a few drops start to fall here, but then it moved on and we did not get any of the heavy rain. Today is sunny and very warm, already...
I did more laundry yesterday and have another load today, just catching up after the weekend. I enjoyed the eating out we did while we were all together. We had wanted to go to one restaurant, but the rain started to pour and when we got there, it was packed with people waiting on the porch, so we were about to go home, when I remembered Jack's English Pub, which was not crowded at all, so we ordered fish and chips for Brian and Daryl and I had a pasty dish..I forget the name of it, but I could not eat it all, so brought half of it home. I should have ordered the Shepherd's Pie again.
My yard crew came yesterday, but did not stay long, and the cleaning ladies are coming today, so I will be all tidied up. I have another gecko in the house who was sitting on the front window last night. I don't know where he is now, but maybe Cheryl will find him. She does not like lizards of any kind, but she caught a baby one a couple weeks ago and escorted him out the door.
I saw ducks in the front yard yesterday, and a flock of ibis rose up in flight from the front and took off after foraging for grubs and whatever else they eat from the ground. God is good!
from the Promise Bible NLT:
Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives
and do what is right, speaking the truth
from sincere hearts.
Those who refuse to slander others
or harm their neighbors or speak evil
of their friends.
Those who despise persistent sinners
and honor the faithful followers of the
Lord and keep their promises even when it hurts.
Those who do not charge interest on the
money they lend, and refuse to accept
bribes to testify against the innocent.
Such people will stand firm forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
