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! More sunshine today, just like yesterday, but unexpectedly, as I was relaxing in the evening, I heard the rain starting, and sure enough, we had a brief shower, just about going home time for working people.I think the same thing is predicted for today.
Well, I was disappointed that the Lightning lost last night, but at least, the Rays won!
And now the sports news will have to focus on something else for a change.
Yesterday, the yard crew came and mowed, then I was expecting my mechanic to come and look at whatever was leaking in the van, and then I had a follow up doctor's app't at 2PM.
Well, even though he ran a little late, the mechanic got here and I made it to the doctor's with a couple minutes to spare, but then had to sit in the waiting room for about fifteen minutes. After I got back to the exam room, I had to wait there for over half an hour with a stack of year old magazines. I should have brought my book. Sigh.
But I know why my doctor is late. He likes to talk, and after he decided I would probably be around to make my two months follow up, and was not so sure he would still be around, we talked about the Bucs, the Rays, the Lightning...he was not shaving his beard until the game was over, even though it was itchy...I told him I was a Packers fan, and that lead to a discussion about the ownership of said football team, Then we talked about Trader Joe's and our opinion of that store. He always asks me if I still live alone and how do I get around. I told him my own two feet and my car. He is always surprised that I still drive and am not in an assisted living facility. I told him when God was ready for me to go, I would go.
After I left there, I zipped over to Wendy's for a cool chocolate Frosty and then visited the Park, saw the gopher tortoise, and an osprey nest on the way home, but first I stopped at the hearing aid place and bought some batteries and got one aid unplugged.
Then home to enjoy the rest of my Frosty! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord is faithful in all he says,
he is gracious in all he does.
The Lord helps the fallen
and lifts up those bent beneath their loads.
All eyes look to you for help
you give them their food as they need it.
When you open your hand
you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing,
The Lord is righteous in everything he does.
He is filled with kindness.
The Lord is close to all who call on him,
yes, to all who call on him sincerely.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
