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 lots of sunshine right now, although it rained earlier. And the prediction is for a strong thundershower later this afternoon.
The yard crew came after I finished sending this blog yesterday, so the yard got picked up and looks neat once again. I took a load of books back to the Library and checked out more, hoping I could make it before a black cloud dropped its load.
Well, I almost made it. It started raining as I checked out, but people were still coming in, so I hurried to the van as fast as I could and was able to get the books and walker in without getting too damp!
Then I went home and changed to a cane, instead of the walker and headed to CVS to pick up a scrip and a few other things. I had three coupons with me and saved $17 dollars! They were all CVS coupons! It pays to shop there!
I decided to drive over to the Park before going home, since the rain had stopped, but it started again before I got there. However, I kept on, and much to my surprise, saw David, the Ranger I had not seen for over a year! We had been really good friends for several years, and then he got transferred to another park and we did not keep in touch. He is back at Sawgrass permanently now, so I will be seeing him again. Meanwhile, while we were talking in the sprinkles, a kite flew over. It was the first one I had ever seen. They are a large bird with a split tail. David said he has been hanging around the park for quiet a while and the Audubon people want to come and band it, but that will be difficult if they can't catch him! I was so excited! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
In times of trouble, may the Lord respond to your cry.
May the God of Israel keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary
and strengthen you from Jerusalem.
May he remember all your gifts
and look favorably on your burnt offerings.
May he grant your heart's desire
and fulfill all your plans.
May we shout for joy when we hear of
your victory, flying banners to honor our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed King.
He will answer him from his holy heaven
and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their armies and weapons
but we boast in the Lord our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse,
but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O Lord!
Respond to our cry for help.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
