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! We are overcast with a promise of rain today and the next couple days. We had just a sprinkle yesterday and it only lasted for a few minutes. So, we take whatever God sends!
There was a lot of activity in my street all day yesterday. My cleaning neighbor and her husband have been having a fence installed, so that meant a flatbed truck with all the fencing equipment and pieces parked in front of my house one day, then their house yesterday. But the super's truck was parked in front of my house and then in front of his truck, a giant spool with cable wrapped around it. was parked just beyond the driveway, effectively blocking the access to my recycle dumpster. I saw the guys walking through my side yard, and spoke to them about what they were doing. It was very hot and they were drenched, but still very nice. When Cheryl came home after she and Kim were through with their cleaning jobs, she noticed the situation with the recycle bins and moved them out into the middle of the street. She is so thoughtful...then when the dumpster was cleared, she brought it back up for me. What a friend!
I did make it over to the library and checked out some more books. This time there were "aisle blockers" ..a mother with a large stroller looking over the movies, totally blocking one aisle and on the computer side, another person sitting on the floor, blocking that aisle. It makes it difficult for a person with balance problems and a cane to get through with care taken not to fall. But, I managed.
I also had quite a few phone calls in a short period of time. A very unusual day! But it always soothes me to go to the park, and I saw an egret stretching its long neck, looking out into the canal, and one of the large, brown gopher tortoises attracting attention and getting photographed. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
And we know that God causes everything to
work together for the good of those who love
God and are called according to his purpose
for them. For God knew his people in advance
and he chose them to become like his Son, so
that his Son would be the firstborn with many
brothers and sisters. And having chosen them.
he called them to come to him. And he gave them
right standing with himself, and he promised them
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
