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! Our TV weatherman posted a picture on FB of a broken record as his weather report yesterday! Very funny, but appropriate. We did not get any rain yesterday, but it sure looked like it, with a very dark cloud hanging overhead and a few sprinkles while I was out and about. Same thing today...
My yard men did not come yesterday, so I thought they would today, but no sign of them so far. My yard still looks neat compared to the next door kid's. He has not mowed for a month and the grass is about two feet high. His parents own the house, but built another one and moved out over a couple years ago, and he wanted to stay. His dad also has a car in the garage that he has been working on for years, but the son is not inclined to do upkeep on the house and yard, so the neighbors have to suffer. Sigh.
Well, it looks like the Sav-A-Lot store is finished and ready to move all the goods in at Town Plaza. It won't be a very large space, but I am sure all the people who live in the apartments there will be happy to shop there so close.
After I finished with my errands, I visited the Park, and passed a large retention pond with a large flock of ibis enjoying the water and whatever food was there for them. The canal was full at the park and one lonely anhinga was drying out his wings in the distance, perched on a bush over the lake. I have seen mockers and bluejays diving into the hedge outside my window, so the berries must be really available for them. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Dear brothers and sisters, if another Christian is
overcome by some sin, you who are godly should
gently and humbly help that person back onto the
right path. And be careful not to fall into the same
temptation yourself. Share each others troubles and
problems. and in this way obey the law of Christ. If
you think you are too important to help someone in
need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a
Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy
the personal satisfaction of having done your work well,
and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else.
For we each are responsible for our own conduct.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
