God Bless America

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 day for all the Veteran's Day parades and ceremonies, especially the one at Bay Pines.

The sunshine is bright and the humidity low. As I was hanging out the flag, I saw a young man walking his dogs across the street, with a coffee cup in one hand and two leashes in the other. I gave him a wave, which he acknowledged with a lift of the cup. Just being neighborly!

Yesterday I started out to gas up the van, and then headed to the library. It was the first time I have ever been attacked by the books! I was reaching up on the top shelf, which is too high for me, when the bookend slipped away and 3 or 4 books came tumbling down on my arm and left side of my face. I said, Whoa!" and one of the librarians who was shelving books came to my rescue, picked up the books and went to get an antiseptic wipe and band aid for my arm which was cut by one of the books. She said I should ask for help next time I want something from the top shelf, but I hate to pull them away from what they are doing just because I want to browse. Anyway, I now have an ugly bruise on my right arm. But I did get five books I selected...

After that I did some more shopping at CVS and then headed home. I had also visited the Park, and saw the gopher tortoise and an anhinga at rest. It was very quiet with not many people around. God is good!

God Bless America
God bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her,
with the night with the light from above.

From the mountains, to the prairies,
to the ocean, white with foam.
God Bless America, my home sweet home.

And My grateful thanks to all men and women serving our country!

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
