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! Rain, rain, rain! The weatherman was right and from the looks of radar, it will be rainy most of the day. My Times was wet because I am having a clash of wills with my carrier. I have asked numerous times for the paper to be placed in the chair right beside my front door, but although it will land in front of the door, on one side of the chair and on the other side of the chair, he (or she) will not place it in the chair. So, today, it was tossed on the porch in the puddle and got soaked through two plastic covers! I have called and will probably get a replacement sometime today. I know I could get it online, but I prefer to have it in my hands. Sigh.
Well, I have not contacted a fence company yet about repairing or replacing the back fence, so I am open to suggestions. It is just a strip across the back yard and part of that is covered by a neighbor who has a fence up against mine. Stay tuned!
The tragic developments of yesterday, in Chattanooga, took place not far from the Ferguson's store which is the headquarters for Daryl's company.. He said everything was in lockdown, and highways were closed, so the delivery truck for that store, had to make a u-turn and head for Cleveland, Daryl's store, to unload, after waiting an hour and a half. I feel so sorry for all involved and especially the families of the Marines! I pray for peace and comfort for them.
But I am convinced that God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Lord, you are mine!
I promise to obey your words!
With all my heart I want your blessings.
Be merciful just as you promised.
I pondered the direction of my life,
and I turned to follow your statutes.
I will hurry, without lingering.
to obey your commands.
Evil people try to drag me into sin,
but I am firmly anchored to your law.
At midnight I rise to thank you
for your just laws.
Anyone who fears you is my friend--
anyone who obeys your
O Lord, the earth is full of your unfailing love.
Teach me your principles.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
