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, a breeze and lower humidity! Ahh, what a beautiful morning! Yesterday started out the same, but grew very hot as the day got longer. We probably won't have cool weather until about late October, according to the meteorologists. Oh, well, that's St. Petersburg!
I watched Dancing With the Stars last night. The name should be changed, because I had not heard of over half of the contestants. However, I looked up the 15 year old, Hayes Grier, and discovered that he is the brother of Will, who is one of the Gators quarterbacks! I don't know why Hayes was selected to be one of the "stars", but I don't keep up with the tweets and so forth of the younger set.
I hope Paula Deen is voted off. She talks too much and can't dance. I kept switching over to the Rays which was not too interesting with the no hitter going for seven innings, and than they fell apart. They can forget the play-offs.
I did some shopping at Winn-Dixie to get some items I was out of, and since I hardly ever go in there, I was surprised to find some things that Publix does not carry. Since that store was remodeled inside, it is much nicer shopping. They also have helpful employees! Twice I was asked if I needed help finding something which I did.
Prior to shopping at WD, I had gone to the Park, and saw an egret with his head poking above the bank at the weir, and the mowing crew was busy on both sided of the road, so the smell of fresh grass was in the air, which usually makes me sneeze. Further on, I saw the big, brown gopher tortoise, munching on his lunch. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Happy are people of integrity
who follow the law of the Lord.
Happy are those who obey his decrees
and search for him with all their hearts.
They do not compromise with evil and
they walk only in his paths.
You have charged us to keep your command-
Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect
Then I will not be disgraced when I compare
my life with your commands.
When I learn of your righteous laws
I will thank you by living as I should.
I will obey your principles.
Please don't give up on me!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
