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! Puffy clouds and blue skies greet us today and we had no rain yesterday, so things should be drying up soon.
My cleaning friends came yesterday, full of excitement about their upcoming trip to Rainbow River. They are taking off next Wednesday for a girl's weekend in a lodge they have rented.18 of them will be playing games, eating, and floating down the river on inner tubes. It sounds like a lot of fun! They warned me, because they will skip my house cleaning since Wed. is my day. I told them I would try not to be too messy, and they said for me not to throw any wild parties!
I did not stay up long enough to watch the Rays lose last night, but got to bed earlier than I have been, and had a good night's sleep. I hope they do better against the Yankees starting Friday...
My hanging basket on the front porch is growing so fast That I keep trimming it, but I noticed that once more the vines are hanging down to the floor again. I think it likes all the rain we have been having. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord is kind and merciful,
slow to get angry, full of unfailing love.
The Lord is good to everyone.
He showers compassion on all his creation.
All your works will thank you, Lord,
and your faithful followers will bless you.
They will talk together about the glory of your kingdom;
they will celebrate examples of your power.
They will tell about your mighty deeds and about
the majesty and glory of your reign.
For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
You rule generation after generation.
The Lord is faithful in all he says.
He is gracious in all he does.
The Lord helps the fallen
and lifts up those bent beneath their loads.
All eyes look to you for help; you give them
their food as they need it.
When you open your hand,
you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
