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 is almost afternoon, and I did not think I would be sending this today. I went to the Quest Diagnostic for lab work, thinking if I arrived around 8:30 or so, the crowd would be gone or at least thinned out. Wrong!! The room was packed with people waiting, so after sitting for a few minutes in one of the few empty seats, I decided to cross off my name and come back another time. Maybe it won't be so crowded Wednesday.
But at least, I got to enjoy the beauty of the morning. I saw many contrails criss crossing the sky; very visible against the very blue background. The sun is shining brightly and warming everything up and a slight breeze is blowing. Just beautiful!
I did not attend church yesterday. Saturday I had eaten a fish sandwich from McDonald's and found out that fish does not agree with me. I had been told by my doctor to not eat shellfish because it causes too much uric acid in my system, but apparently, most any fish does that. I was awake most of the night with needle like pains in my left foot, so I got up and walked around and had some yogurt about 3:30 Sunday morning.. My leg felt weak, so, much as I hated to miss church, I thought it best that I stay home. I had a good night's sleep last night and I feel much better. God is good!
BTW, Our youth director, Chuck Howard, won Honorable Mention for a very funny segment he sent to Funniest Home Videos which was shown on TV last night.
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
who have no confidence in the proud
or in this who worship idols.
O Lord, my God, you have done many
miracles for us.
Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds
I would never come to the end of them.
You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings/
Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand--
You don't require burnt offerings or sin offerings.
Then I said. "Lord, I have come.
And this has been written about me in your scroll.
I take joy in doing your will, my God,
for your law is written on my heart."
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
