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, I hope we don't have another thunderstorm like we had yesterday evening. Wow! What a lot of thunder cracks and booms and lights flickering, and finally going off for a minute! I was having my dinner during all this, but I kept jumping at the loud booms! It lasted about thirty minutes and the rain just poured! That's enough of that!
Earlier in the afternoon, I had taken one of my Amish quilts to the cleaners and then took "a road less traveled" by me, and discovered a whole neighborhood of new houses I had never seen before! Seems like there is always something new, even though these particular houses could have been there for two or three years. I just never had occasion to use that street before.
I was watching the news this morning about another Allegiant plane that had to abort it flight to NY and come back to ST.Pete Clearwater airport because of engine difficulties. The hundred and sixty passengers had to remain on the plane for a couple hours; first, because they had to circle for an hour using up fuel and then on the ground while mechanics investigated the problem. That airlines has had more than its share of problems lately.
I took a ride through the Park on my way home yesterday and saw very few people out and about. I spied one anhinga on the weir and the usual squirrels, but everything was quiet and peaceful. One table was crowded with a lot of young people standing around talking and planning something it looked like.
But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Psalm 139:17,18 23-24
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God!
They are innumerable!
I can't even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up in the morning,
you are still with me!
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
