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 have lots of sun this morning, since it came out yesterday afternoon and will be with us for the rest of the week, Also, the temps will be in the eighties for a while. So the beautiful weather continues.
My cleaning ladies came yesterday, and caught me up on the neighborhood news. The couple that are hoarders, cleaned out their car that was stuffed with bags of who knows what and put it all into a self-store rental van. Then, a truck with a trailer came from a junk yard and hauled it off. What a shame to see a once nice car go to a junk yard. Sigh. Oh, well, different strokes for different folks.
I swept a path clear of acorns for a few minutes, so Kim and Cheryl could come in without crushing dozens of acorns under foot. Before they left the house, more had fallen, and are still falling.The rain gutter is probably full by now! This will be the pattern for a couple more months yet!
I drove to CVS to pick up a few things later in the afternoon and on the way out, was ahead of an older (maybe fifties or sixties) man who said "Ladies first" and then went on to add something about" lovely ladies with hair all gussied up." I took that as a compliment, but replied that at least it was combed! That gave me a chuckle!
I went on to the Park and noticed that the canal and lakes were quite full from what must have been a heavy rain Tuesday night. I was not aware that it had rained that hard, but did see that a flash flood had washed a car into a canal here locally. Fortunately, the driver escaped unharmed. So, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
"Come now, let us argue this out," says the Lord.
"No matter how deep the stain of your sins, I can
remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen
snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I
can make you as white as wool. If you will only obey
me and let me help you, then you will have plenty to
eat. But if you keep turning away and refusing to
listen, you will be destroyed by your enemies. I, the Lord, have spoken!"
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
