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! Sun, and warm breezes, and today I was up in time to see the pink clouds stretched across the eastern sky for the sunrise. We had no rain yesterday, even though I heard thunder for awhile in the evening. But apparently, it was far enough away so that it did not come to this neighborhood.
I noticed the man at the end of the block, who has tried for a week or more to have concrete poured for his driveway, but could not because of water standing at the curb end, finally got the cement poured and then had to cover it with a tarp because of rain. But yesterday it was uncovered and drying out and looks good. The ground is so saturated, that he has deep grooves in his yard from driving his cars onto the yard to park. Tire tracks can be seen in my grass from the heavy ride- on mower that my yard man uses.
I was pleased to see that gas prices are still going down when I went to Walmart to fill the tank of the van.On my way out there, I stopped off at the park, and saw a young mother with three little ones under the age of seven getting them all ready for a walk. She had a two level stroller with one toddler perched above the baby, and the older child walking. Bless her heart! She was a busy mom!
Also, I noticed that there were some beautiful, towering, white clouds piled across the eastern sky where Tampa Bay is. And off in the northwest, was a dark cloud with a sheet of rain falling from it. The white clouds were so puffy and piled up, they looked like whipped cream and I could imagine taking a bite of them! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous--and how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God!
They are innumerable!
I can't even count them; they outnumber the
grains of sand. And when I wake up in the morning
you are still with me....
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you
and lead me along the path of everlasting life.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
