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's overcast and humid, but the temp is in the high sixties, so it will warm up later on and no rain is predicted. Right now the wind is blowing, so it is still a gorgeous day!
Surprise! My yard crew came yesterday, instead of Monday, and blew all the leaves into piles and then put them in the dumpster. My handy man raked up 9 bags a couple weeks ago, and I did not think my yard crew would do any more raking. Guess I was fooled! Anyway, it looked nice for a while, but now the leaves that are left on the trees are falling.
Also, later in the afternoon, the roof man came and inspected and could not find any cause for the leak in the flat roof. He sealed the ends of the shingles where the slant roof joins the flat one and said over all the roof should last me several more years. Yay! Good news!
I heard a loud mower close by while I was busy on the computer and went to the living room to see where the mowing was. I could not see anything, but later, Cheryl called and told me that the yard next door was mowed and edged. A young guy I have known since he was born lives there and does not care for his yard, so his mom came and hired a yard man to clean up the place. That is the best it has looked for a year or more!
Well, I saw a mocking bird sitting on the line this morning. It was such a contrast to see this lone wild bird sitting among all the wires and connections on that particular pole! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord
and he will give you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord,
Trust him and he will help you.
He will make your innocence as clear asthe dawn,
and the justice of your cause will shine
like the noonday sun.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
