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 can tell the seasons are slowly changing, because the leaves and acorns are falling more and the breeze was just a little cooler even though the temp. was about ninety. The water temp. in the Gulf is still right at 80, so people who like to play in the water are not likely to get chilled.
Well, I had an amazing Monday! As I was on the PC, the doorbell rang, and it was Ray, saying he and Tim were going to be in the backyard working on the broken fence. So, after measuring, they went off to get what they needed, and I finished up the blog, while the yard crew came and did their job.
Ray and Tim worked for about 3 or 4 hours in the heat, and got the new section and gate up. It looks so good! I haven't received a bill, yet. for the fencing, and the hauling off of the old broken pieces. Somehow, I don't think I will...
Then I went to CVS to pick up a scrip. and stood in line behind a man wearing a Tee advertising Dan's Designer Carpet Cleaning. Since I had been looking for a carpet cleaner because my old one retired, I asked his back if he was local. He turned around and said he was, it is his business and he does the work. So, he wrote down his phone number and I looked him up on the web..turns out he is on Angie's list. So, I will give him a call and ask for an estimate. Did I forget to mention his delightful dimples?
So, after that encounter, I came home to see a large padded envelope sticking out of the mailbox. It was from my niece in Louisiana and contained two of her paintings that I had admired on FB. She says she does not have any talent, but her use of color is beautiful and I was happy to get the art work! Totally unexpected! God was full of surprises for me!
Coming home, I saw a roseate spoonbill in Turner's creek which was at low tide, and a couple of anhingas and flocks of ibis around Lynch Lake Park.God was and is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give
you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him and he will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear as the dawn,
and the justice of your cause will shine like
the noonday sun.
Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper
or fret about their evil schemes.
Stop your anger!
Turn from your rage!
Do not envy others---
it only leads to harm.
For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord will
possess the land.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
