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! It is a beautiful morning with cooler temps and lots of sunshine and a few puffy white clouds around. If we have any rain today, it won't be until late afternoon.
Yesterday, the yard crew came about 11, so, even though the grass was wet, and there was water standing on the porch, they got the job done. It did not rain while they were here, but right afterwards it started to sprinkle after they had moved on down the street.
I did laundry yesterday, including ironing which I had let accumulate. I should not do that, because it is tiring to stand and iron and then hang everything up. However, it was good to get it done. Then I noticed a large truck out front and checked and saw it was the BH guys again...this time they were in the back yard climbing the pole and removing the old cable. I was amazed at how long it was. One man pulled it through the backyard, and way down the street until the end showed up. They had a large spool in the street to wrap it around. I spoke to them and they seemed happy in their work.
Later, I took off for the park and wouldn't you know, it started to rain as I left the house. I drove over anyway, just to see what I could find. A wet, shiny, gopher tortoise was wandering around not worried about the wetness. He carries his shelter where ever he goes.There were quite a few people there who did not care about the rain. Of course there are shelters on the boardwalk. I remember many years ago, I got caught in the rain, stood under a tree for awhile, and then dashed for a shelter, but got pretty soaked.. Ah, those were the days! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I look up to the mountains...
does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made the heavens and the earth!
He will not let you stumble and fall;
the one who watches over you will not sleep.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
never tires and never sleeps.
The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shield.
The sun will not hurt you by day,
nor the moon at night.
The Lord keeps you from all evil as you come and go,
both now and forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
