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! I thought surely we would get some rain yesterday, but even though there were very dark clouds in the northwest, nothing happened. Sigh. Maybe today.
I had to run some errands yesterday, so after I got through, I remembered that the grand opening of the newly rebuilt Wendy's was scheduled, so I decided to check it out, and get a chocolate Frosty.I did not go inside, but was impressed by the outside drive thru that is now totally covered. It looked like they were doing a booming business, even though it was the middle of the afternoon! It only took about two months or more to get the old one torn down and the new one built. Fast work!
Traffic was really heavy, so apparently not all the tourists have gone home, yet. Or maybe these were local people out on jobs. I know the Rays are back in town, but it was too early for people to be headed to the Trop.
I noticed that two Sunoco stations and a convenience store have closed recently. It will be interesting to see what is done with those properties. One is in a prime 4th st. location, and the other on M. L. King St.
I was enjoying the beauty of two massive jacaranda trees on the way home. There are other smaller trees, but these are old and fully in bloom with the beautiful lavender blossoms not yet falling on the ground. Takes my breath away! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Look at the lilies and how they grow.
They don't work and make their clothing,
yet Solomon in all his glory was not
dressed as beautifully as they are. And if
God cares so wonderfully for flowers that
are here today and gone tomorrow , won't he
more surely care for you? You have so
little faith! And don't worry about food--what
to eat and drink. Don't worry whether God
will provide it for you. These things dominate
the thoughts of most people, but your Father
already knows your needs. He will give you all you need
from day to day if you make the Kingdom of God
your primary concern.
So don't be afraid, little flock. For it gives the Father
great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in
my prayers with thanksgiving, love and joy!
Love and hugs,
