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 no rain yesterday, and it looks like the same weather today. Lots of sun and humidity, blue skies and white puffy clouds. Perfect!
I forgot to mention that I have a beautiful amaryllis blooming! This is a Christmas flower, so I don't know why it is just now blooming, but it has survived the yard man trimming all the leaves, a raking of mulch off it and the rest of the bulbs barely poking up. So, I am very pleased that it is showing four blossoms on the long stem. Yay, for it! (And yes, I cautioned the yard guy about weed eating the wrong thing.)
I took a ride over to the park yesterday and saw that not much was going on. It was hot and quiet. The water was still high in the canal, so no egrets were interested in pecking around, but, as usual the squirrels were busy racing around and the mower was going. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Trust in the Lord and do good,
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord,
trust him and he will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear as
the dawn, and the justice of your cause will
shine like the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their wicked schemes.
Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others---
it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord will
possess the land.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
