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! Well, more rain and the earth is saturated. But yesterday was sunny and very warm, so I was able to attend church and not worry about getting wet.
I know a couple hundred people have been evacuated in Pasco Co. because of flooding. Lakes and rivers are overflowing, and retention ponds are full. But God is in control and He controls the rain and sun.
I have written about my back fence sagging and the help coming from the men who attend the Bible study early Thurs. mornings; well, yesterday while I was at church the man(?) who lives in back of me, apparently fixed the gate. It was in place when I got home. I have never seen whoever lives there and don't know them, but Ray said he would come over and check it out and see if the "fix" is permanent or not. A couple other men, including the pastor, told me they would be over to work on it. I am so blessed!
Speaking of church, I saw three ladies for the first time in about five or ten years, yesterday. They were active back in the first days of FCC. Seems like old time members are always coming back home to Faith. It is always good to see old familiar faces.
Well, I have not seen any birds or butterflies yet today, although I did see some yesterday at the Park, and around Lynch Lake, which is full.
The canal at the Park has plenty of water, also! But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
A single day in your courts is better
than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the
house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.
For the Lord God is our light and protector.
He gives us grace and glory.
No good thing will the Lord withhold
from those who do what is right.
O Lord Almighty,
Happy are those who trust in you.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
