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 surprised to feel the cool air this morning when I arose...did not expect it. The weather is in the high sixties and the sky is blue with a few white clouds. Still dry, though, and, once again, we will be in the fifties tomorrow morning, but warming up to the high seventies. Just perfect weather!
I heard a buzzing noise which I thought was coming from the fridge, while I was eating a bowl of oatmeal, but got up to check and found out my yard crew was here early. They just edged, blew off the leaves and left, but I was glad they blew all the leaves off the front porch. I'm sure they love this weather!
We had another good worship service yesterday. Seems the closer it gets to Christmas, the more people come, which is good! I like the singing and am happy they are including the Christmas carols, now. Pastor Kevin had a very funny story about sliding down a snowy, icy hill in Minn. one winter with all the family, which led to his sermon about JOY! I love the fact that his voice is loud and clear and I have no trouble understanding him.
I visited the Park Saturday and yesterday. Sat. there were very few people there, but yesterday it was a good crowd, because the weather was so good. A few visitors are showing up now, but still a lot of natives use the park. I saw the large gopher tortoise again and a large flock of ibis. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
(one of my favorite verses)
And I pray that the God who gives you hope
will keep you happy and full of peace as you
trust in him. May you overflow with hope
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving,
joy and love!
Love and hugs,
