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! More sun, more heat, but , so far, not a cloud in the sky. That will all change later in the afternoon, because this is the time of year we get our afternoon-late evening thunder showers.

I can't imagine what it is like to have to abandon your home because of a sinkhole happening under it, but that is what happened in a small city near here, yesterday. It is 15 ft. wide and 30 or more ft. deep, so the people had to evacuate, along with about four other homes. Bad or unexpected things happen every day, but this is so unexpected! My heart goes out to these people!

Yesterday, I returned a book to the drop box at the library. There are two drop boxes, one lower than the other, (which has been plowed into by a vehicle) and the high one is just right for me to reach from the van. I often use it for the convenience. Then, I left there and drove on to the park to see what was going on. An anhinga was perched on the weir drying its wings, and further on, a white egret was spotted on a tree hanging over the canal. Quite a few people were enjoying the freedom of the park, even though it was quite warm! God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 40:28-31
Have you never heard or understood?
Don't you know that the Lord is the everlasting
God, the Creator of all the earth?
He never grows faint or weary. No one can
measure the depth of his understanding.
He gives power to those who are tired and worn out.
He offers strength to the weak. Even youths
will become exhausted, and young men will
 give up. But those who find new strength.
They will fly high on wings like eagles. They
will run and not grow weary. They will walk
and not faint.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
