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! As I said yesterday, we are having very warm days and high humidity and there is even a thunderstorm predicted for today. However, there is bright sunshine right now with a breeze gently blowing acorns everywhere.
Since the yard crew came early and just blew off all the acorns, so far, not as many have fallen on the porch and driveway. But I am sure it won't take long for them to be everywhere. In fact, as I sit and read in the evening, even with the TV on, I can hear them falling .
I have a doctor's appointment right after lunch, so I guess I will get my flu shot when I go. I am late this year, because I got it in Sept. last year. I don't think it will protect me too much, because the pneumonia shots did not mean much. I had one, plus the booster and still wound up in the hospital in January with pneumonia. I was in there on my birthday. I remember several years ago, I was sitting in the ER with Louis while he was examined, and it was also my birthday! Not my idea of fun!
But then, I also remember all the surprise parties pulled off successfully by my friend Mari, for my birthday and what fun they were! I really appreciate her!
Well, I was driving by one of our drainage ditches a couple days ago, and saw a couple ibis pecking away along with a couple roseate spoonbills! My favorite water fowl! Yesterday I drove through the park and saw the large brown gopher tortoise ambling along the grass. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself;
how I praise you!
I will honor you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest of foods.
I will praise you with songs of joy.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
