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! Daryl said it was 61 in Cleveland TN this morning and 48 in Murphy NC! Fall is coming, so take heart! This heat may soon be less and coolness may come in. The acorns are falling all over, so fall must be on the way here, also!
The ceiling still looks good this morning, so the paint job took nicely, and the yard guys came also, so the grass, which had grown pretty much the past week, looks good, too, since it got trimmed.
After the helpers had left, I heard thunder about lunch time, and heard a few drops fall on the vent, so I went to the front door and opened it just it time to see a flash of lightning, and a loud clap of thunder! I had intended to go to the Winn Dixie, but thought that's where the rain was coming down. I was right, because later on, I went over there and puddles were everywhere. I am only about a mile from that shopping center, and yet we had no more than a few drops.!
But, after I left the store and headed for a brief visit to the Park, rain started to fall once again and I got into a steady rain before I got home, so we did get more rain. But I saw ibis and egrets and ducks around Lynch Lake. School started yesterday, so there were not as many people out as usual. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning,
your faithfulness in the evening,
accompanied by the harp and lute
and the harmony of the lyre.
You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!
I sing for joy because of what you have done!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
