Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will be glad and rejoice in it! Beautiful! That's the word for the weather right now. Later this afternoon we are predicted to get cooler for a couple days, so I guess I will have to put another blanket on the bed. Hopefully, that will be the last time!
So, I made the trip to the dentist yesterday and with a few red lights, I still got there on time.Sure enough, I had to have the tooth drilled out and a filling put in. I haven't had a cavity in years, so this was a surprise to me, but Dr. Bob blames it on a loose flipper that let food in even though I floss after every meal. So, he did not charge me!! What a blessing! They also added a layer to the flipper, so that it fits tighter.( FYI, a flipper is a one tooth partial, ) It replaces a tooth that broke in two several years ago. And, yes, he did sing...part of Winter Wonderland. The assistant joined in with the words and then he went into America the Beautiful. I'm thankful he didn't start the Star Spangled Banner, because I was in no position to stand up!
After an hour and a half, I was free to go, so I zipped across the street to the Bed, Bath and Beyond store, but did not find a close parking space, so decided to head for home, since I wanted to avoid the going home traffic.
I was interested to see the interview with the pilot of the F-35, the latest version of the stealth fighter which flew in to the Fun and Sun Festival. This is a 100 million dollar plane, and he seems like such a modest young man, very well spoken and patient to answer all the questions he was asked by reporters, about what it is like to fly such a plane. Our country is in good hands with service men like him!
Well, I watched the last show of the American Idol last night. and my favorite won! I somehow knew before his name was announced that Trent Harmon was going to win. I thought the runner up had a terrific voice, but is so different in background and personality than Trent. It remains to be seen how popular he will be in his career.
I saw several little squirrels in the yard as I drove up yesterday. They were busy digging up the acorns they had buried earlier. There is a family of four, very cute! I am thankful they do not eat amaryllis bulbs as they are still blooming and very pretty! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Listen, O Heavens, and I will speak!
Hear, O earth, the words that I say!
My teaching will fall on you like rain;
my speech will settle like dew.
My words will fall like rain on tender grass.
I will proclaim the name of the Lord:
how glorious is our God!
He is the Rock; his work is perfect.
Everything he does is just and fair.
He is a faithful God who does no wrong;
how just and upright he is!
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
