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! We have a ditto day today; that is, the same today as yesterday and probably tomorrow and the rest of the week. Sunny, and very warm!
My last amaryllis is blooming, which is unusual for this late in May, but I am so happy that they bloomed this year!
I did not send my blog yesterday, because of an early appointment with my dermatologist downtown. I go down 9th St to his office on 6th St. So. and zipped all the way down without stopping until I got to Central Ave. All green lights all the way! That does not happen often. As a result I arrived a bit early, but that did not mean I did not have to wait. Dr. Chris always runs late, so it was about 40 minutes before I actually saw him. Sitting with just a paper gown on is not comfy, as I always get cold. He always apologizes for being late, but not does not mollify me.I try not to be irritated with him, because he is thorough. He did a couple biopsies and zapped a few more spots, as usual. Guess it doesn't matter how old I get, sun damage always pops up.
After I left his office, I took a cruise through beautiful downtown St. Petersburg. The waterfront was so beautiful, and people were walking around shopping and starting to find restaurants. Lots of outdoor seating on such a beautiful day!
Then I drove up busy 4th St. and thought I would pull into CFA to get a salad for lunch. Well, the line was out in the street, but moving quickly and the outside order taker was working her way around all the cars, so it was very efficient. It took about twenty minutes to get all the way around and by the time I got my order the line was so long out into 4th st, that I could not see to pull out into traffic. Finally, a nice alert driver in the mini-van waved me on, because she could see and I could not. Whew! Glad to get home! My frosty lemonade hit the spot with the salad!
God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Wise planning will watch over you. Understanding will
keep you safe.
My child, don't lose sight of good planning and insight.
Hang on to them, for they fill you with life and bring
you honor and respect. They keep you safe on your way
and keep your feet from stumbling. You can lie down
without fear and enjoy pleasant dreams . You need not
be afraid of disaster or the destruction that comes upon
the wicked for the Lord is your security. He will keep your
foot from being caught in a trap.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
