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!
I put the flag out this morning as my small way of remembering what happened 14 years ago today. I know exactly where I was and what I was doing at that time and watching for hours the horrible scenes from New York, Pennsylvania and Wash. DC. I also saw some of the ceremonies this morning on TV. I will never forget!
My handy man was due at 9:30 but called to ask if it would be ok if he didn't come until noon, since he had some equipment he had to drop off for repairs. That is perfectly all right with me, because it us just yard work that needs to be done. He always does a good job, no matter what it is!
I saw flocks of ibis and ducks at Lynch Lake, as I drove to the library to pick up a book I had ordered. I still watch for the roseate spoonbills to come back, because they seem unaware how pretty they are in their pinkness! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Nehemiah continued, "Go and celebrate with a feast
of choice foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food
with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred
day before our Lord. Don't be dejected and sad, for the
joy of the Lord is your strength,"
Strength starts in the heart, long before it is exerted in other
aspects of life. the joy of the Lord gives us strength to obey,
to endure, and to triumph in all circumstances.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
