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 finally got the rain last night; in fact, it was a small storm. The sky got very dark about 6 and the wind started really blowing about thirty minutes later. After that the rains came. I peeked out this morning and only saw one large twig in the front yard which blew down from the oak, but there may be more. I was in my jammies, so I did not go out. We have had a lot of near misses with the rains, but yesterday was our turn.
My cleaning ladies came yesterday, fresh from lunch, which they ate at the Metro Diner, a new place, which I had told them Brian had already tried. They were groaning from all they had eaten and said the food was good, but the place was really noisy! I gave Kim the sequel book to "Me Before You" called "After You" and she was anxious to get started reading it. I told her I hoped a follow up book was being written. because the sequel calls for a sequel! The ending kind of leaves the plot hanging.
It was an extremely hot day yesterday, as it will be the rest of this week, so I stayed in and got the sheets washed and put back on the bed and did some other chores around the house, and then took a short nap in the late afternoon. I don't do that very often, but hadn't been sleeping too well, so, all at once, it caught up to me! But, God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.
You guard all that is mine.
The land you have given me is a pleasant land.
What a wonderful inheritance!
I will bless the Lord who guides me,
even at night my heart instructs me.
I know the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
