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 had overcast skies and drizzles nearly all day yesterday, so I canceled my doctor's app't. since it is no pleasure to drive in the rain, and hard to hold an umbrella and walk with a cane at the same time. But, I have to go next week. Sigh. This is my dermatologist.
So, today is starting out the same as yesterday. Apparently, it rained last night because the puddles were on the porch and rain is dripping off the roof. Maybe it will clear up this afternoon and turn a little cooler.
Well, I watched part of the World Series last night, but logged on this morning to see the final score, since the game lasted 14 innings! I am rooting for the Royals, because Ben Zobrist was traded to them and he was one of my favorites when he was with the Rays.
I had a wonderful conversation on the phone with my 100 year old friend, Phyllis. Her mind is still very active and she is still a fervent prayer warrior. We spent many years every Monday in prayer at church for many requests that were written for us to pray over. I really appreciate all her prayers for me and my family.
Well, the ibis certainly do not mind the rain. I saw a flock of them flowing from yard to yard yesterday, with heads down and beaks probing in the ground as they moved along.
God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
1 Thessalonians 4:14-19
Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who
are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care
of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.
See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to
be good to each other and to everyone else.
Always be joyful. Keep on praying. No matter what happens,
always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong
to Christ Jesus.
Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, but
test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. Keep away
from every kind of evil.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
