God 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 are expecting about 93 degrees today with our usual afternoon thunder storms. This continues to be a hot, humid summer, typical for St. Petersburg!
I was a little late getting to church yesterday, simply because I was wrapped up in finishing a book and the time got away from me. I was not late for church, just later leaving home than usual. But, there were plenty of parking spaces for me to choose from, because first service people had already left!
I took my usual seat...three seats in from the end in the last middle row, and soon, a young woman came to sit next to me as she has for the past month. Her name is Judy and she is very pretty, I asked her where she worked and she told me the Comfort Inn on 54th. I am always interested in just who God will put next to me in the last row. Also, another couple has been sitting in the first two seats in that row for the past couple Sundays. That is where two ladies sit, but they must be on vacation. It was good to see Pastor Kevin back, although he did not preach. He sat with his Mom in the row right in front of me. Pastor Dave was the preacher.
Brian came over Saturday and did some things for me, and we had a nice visit, catching up on his work and how it is going. Even though he calls every day, it is nice to catch up in person.I am blessed with two good sons. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
1 Chronicles 16:31-36
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice!
Tell all the nations that the Lord is king.
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst forth with joy!
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise
before the Lord!
For he is coming to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Cry out, "Save us, O God of our salvation!
Gather and rescue us from among the nations,
so we can thank your holy name and rejoice
and praise you."
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!
And all the people shouted "Amen!" and
praised the Lord.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
