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! Well, it looks like we will have more rain starting late tonight and into tomorrow, so I need to get to the supermarket and buy some supplies I am nearly out of. But today is overcast and sunny..that is, the clouds break once in awhile and the sun shines through. It is warmer than yesterday and must be up to about 70 already.
My trash was picked up and the dumpster brought back by the driver, so the system is working! I mentioned the yard crew yesterday. but not the extra they did. Jim, the leader, took time to pick up some large twigs and broken branches that had blown off in the strong wind, but I took a walk around the house and there are a lot more on the ground that need to be cleared up. Guess I will have to call Rick for that!
I stayed home yesterday and took care of laundry and other stuff. I was fascinated by a blue jay hopping inside the hedge outside my window. They seem to have no trouble with the dense growth and just look for the berries, of which there are few this time of year. I noticed on my walk that the large azalea bush in the back is blooming. It is much too early, but the warm winter has thrown everything off! But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Sing out your thanks to the Lord,
sing praises to our God, accompanied by harps.
He covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
and makes the green grass grow in beautiful pastures.
He feeds the wild animals
and the young ravens cry to him for food.
The strength of a horse does not impress him;
how puny in his sight is the strength of a man,
Rather,the Lord's delight is in those who honor him,
those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
