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! I was noticing the contrast between the blue of the sky and the whiteness of the towering clouds yesterday. So beautiful! And today looks like more of the same. We had a short thunderstorm Saturday night, which left a broken branch in front of the garage door. I did not notice it, as I backed out to go to church and it caught under the car. I got out to see what the dragging noise was, and had to pull and pull to get it out, hoping I was not damaging anything. So far, everything seems to be all right.
I had received an invitation to a party Sunday afternoon, celebrating the promotion of my dear friend, David, so drove a few blocks to his house and had a good time eating and talking and just listening. I am sort of a wallflower when it comes to crowds. I like to listen and watch other people, rather than trying to converse in a loud crowd and have difficulty hearing. My good friend, Gil, and I exchanged thoughts and he helped me when I needed it. In fact, I have so many people looking out for me, I am totally blessed. After dark, last night, my neighbor across the street, called to tell me my porch light was not on. I had forgotten again! So, there is another friend and helper!
The birds were so loud this morning, I thought one was in the house. He must have perched right outside the window while I was having breakfast, and just sang as loud as he could! Such a happy sound! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Shout with joy to the Lord, O Earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
