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 may have a shower or two this weekend, but I don't think that will stop the firecrackers and displays from going on. I was surprised by a shower yesterday. I did not even know it had rained when I went down to pull the dumpster back up.
But everything was wet, and water was running in the gutter. The sky stayed overcast and gloomy for quite a while and after lunch I felt really sleepy, so I took a nap, which felt good.
After that, I drove over to the Salvation Army to drop off my stuff, but there was no one to unload my van, so I decided to come back another day. Traffic was pretty heavy, because the Rays had an afternoon game and it was over, so the few that attended were hurrying home.
I had headed on down to Chick-fil-A after leaving the S.A. and already the drive thru line was moving rapidly, but extending almost out to the street. The 4th St. CFA is almost always busy! But I got my frosty lemonade and it was delicious, as was the grilled chicken sandwich!
The podacarpus hedge right outside my window is busy with birds flying in and out all day, because it is full of seeds, which they must like! Lots of mockingbirds and bluejays! God is good!
OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM
OH, SAY, CAN YOU SEE, BY THE DAWN'S EAR;Y LIGHT,
WHAT SO PROUDLY WE HAIL'D AT THE TWILIGHT'S LAST
WHOSE BRIGHT STRIPES AND BRIGHT STARS, THRO' THE
O'ER THE RAMPARTS WE WATCH'D WERE SO GALLANTLY
AND THE ROCKET'S RED GLARE , THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR,
GAVE PROOF THROUGH THE NIGHT THAT OUR FLAG WAS STILL
OH, SAY, DOES THAT STAR-SPANGLED BANNER YET WAVE
O'ER THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE?
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
