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 great weather over the weekend, but a deluge on Friday, so our rain quota for this month is already way over average! It has been up in the nineties and is expected to stay hot the rest of the week. I had the A/C checked for the summer, and it is all ready to keep on doing the job it has been doing since May.
Church was all decorated for Vacation Bible School yesterday, so it is very busy today with all the children and volunteers going from class to music and outdoors to play. We saw a couple of puppet numbers during worship and they were well received. Lots of work and lots of love go into this project!
Well, our hockey team lost but the Rays won in a sweep over the White Sox, so we still have an interest in sports. I have a busy day going today, so am expecting my yard crew, my mechanic to come take a look at my leaking wheel, and then a doctor's appointment.
But I did get to the Park yesterday, and although things were quiet, I disturbed a flock of ibis, which flew up when the car approached. I am still showering with the gecko, who is getting skinnier from lack of food. One of these days, I will take a chance and try to pick him up, but he is still pretty fast. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O Lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name fills the earth!
Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and nursing infants
to give you praise.
They silence your enemies
who were seeking revenge.
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers----
the moon and the stars you have set in place----
What are mortals that you should think of us,
mere humans that you should care for us?
For you made us only a little lower than God,
and you crowned us with glory and honor.
You put us in charge of everything you made,
giving us authority over all things---
the sheep and the cattle
and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.
Or lord, our Lord, the majesty of your name
fills the earth!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
