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! Sunshine, no wind and chilly air , but warming is what we have today. When I checked the temp earlier it was 49 degrees, but has already warmed up to about 54. Not much better, but I am managing to stay warm.
Well, I made an unhappy discovery this morning, The spot on the ceiling of my fireplace room has been leaking again. The white is discolored, but it doesn't look too bad. That is a difficult area that has been sealed several times, so I called my handy man again and told him what to expect when he comes. I had already left a message for him a day or two ago. Sigh. If it's not one thing, it's another!
My cleaning ladies came yesterday, late, and got the house all spic and span, as they usually do. Cheryl was wearing sneakers, which I teased her about, because she always wears flip flops. she said the reason she didn't wear them was because they would look silly with the long pants she was wearing. She doesn't feel the cold so much, but my feet really do!
I watched two blue jays eating some kind of seeds from the ground next door; then they started fussing at each other and flew away! Tsk! They should try to get along! But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows.
He leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk through the dark valley of death,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me .
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me,
in the presence of my enemies.
You welcome me as a guest,
anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing
love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
