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 was noticing the different and beautiful formations of the clouds yesterday while I was out, and I think it will be the same today. We have clouds, sun, and breezes, just the same as yesterday.
I accomplished a lot yesterday. I shopped at Publix at noonish, thinking it would be crowded, but it was not. As I was rounding an aisle, a lady came up to me and commented on my hair, calling me by name. I looked closely at her and recognized her as a former member of my church. I could remember her first name, but not her last, so I looked in the church directory for 1995, and there she was! She mentioned that she wanted to come back one of these days, and seemed to know what was going on at my church. Small world!
I had a really nice bag girl named Cheyenne, who walked out with me to put the groceries in the van, so shopping was really a pleasure! As I left the store, and went past Beall's, I saw two work men sitting on the display window ledge intently looking at their cell phones. Further down, four teenagers were sitting on the concrete all looking at their cell phones. Whatever happened to conversation? Just sayin'.
After putting the groceries away, and having a bite of salad, I took off for the library and returned two books, and checked out six more.. It was a busy place after school, and with lots of people on computers.
Then I drove on to the park and saw a tall, white egret fishing, and further down, the large brown tortoise moving with glacial speed, and munching on grass as he moved along.God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
If you need wisdom---if you want to know what
God wants you to do--ask him and he will gladly
tell you. He will not resent your asking. But when
you do ask him, be sure that you really expect
him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled
as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the
wind. People like that should not expect to receive
anything from the Lord. They can't make up their
minds. They waver back and forth in everything they do.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
