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 heard lots of thunder and there were many lightning strikes last night, but most of the action was near my house, not over it. I heard some rain falling, but it did not last long in this neighborhood and this morning everything is dry. I had weather alerts on my phone and it was on the TV, so a lot of people got the high wind warnings. So, today is another sunny, hot day!
Maybe some of you heard about the tanker filled with diesel fuel that had a tire blow out and then the tanker caught fire on the Skyway bridge. What a fire! So many people use that bridge to commute every day and traffic was at a stop on both sides of the span. It took firefighters quite a while to get through to the fire and then inspectors had to inspect the integrity of the span. I can only say, I am thankful no one was hurt and that I was not trapped on the bridge!
Well, Chick-fil-a was giving free entrees yesterday if you dressed like a cow, or had something that looked like a cow on clothing or whatever. I did not even try, because I knew how crowded that place would be. However, I got a free entree at Wendy's. I went for a small salad and small cheeseburger, with strawberry lemonade. When I got to the window, I was handed the lemonade, then sweet tea, which I refused, then had to ask for the burger, got another bag and drove home. When I opened up the bag, I got a chicken sandwich, looked at the ticket and saw that I was not charged for it. I just paid for the lemonade. When I called the manager, he just said not to worry about it! I predict lost revenue unless they get their act together. But I enjoyed the meal. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives
and do what is right,
speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
Those who refuse to slander others
or harm their neighbors,
or speak evil of their friends.
Those who despise persistent sinners,
and honor the faithful followers of the Lord,
and keep their promises even when it hurts.
Those who do not charge interest on the money they lend
and refuse to accept bribes to testify against the innocent.
Such people will stand firm forever.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
