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 our usual morning sun and a good breeze, but thundershowers are once again predicted for this afternoon and evening.
I was disappointed last night at the timing of the rain, because I had hoped to attend the meeting at church, but since I cannot carry an umbrella and use the walker at the same time, I thought it prudent to stay home. I used to know what was going on at the church, but now, things happen without me, which is okay, because I know God has placed good leaders in position to make decisions and I trust them.
Saturday, after I finished with my hair cut, I drove on out to Wendy's to pick up a small salad, and saw more building going on on 4th St. Since that is a main corridor to downtown St. Pete., lots of restaurants are opening nearly every month. Some go out of business and others open up in their space. Looks like lots of people eat out every day!
I was interested to see a young man at church yesterday who I had not seen in a couple months. He is very shy, and very soft spoken, but I know his name is Michael. I used to speak to him whenever he passed by and he would speak to me for a few minutes, but very briefly. Unfortunately, with all the talking around me, it is very difficult for me to understand him, but, anyway, I was glad to see him and he actually gave me a small wave as he looked for a seat.
I visited Sawgrass park a couple times over the weekend, and saw a flock of ibis, and anhinga and lots of two legged humans walking around, enjoying the outdoors. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
My child, don't lose sight of good planning and insight.
Hang on to these for they bring you honor and respect.
They keep you safe on your way and keep your feet
from stumbling. You can lie down without fear and
enjoy pleasant dreams. You need not be afraid of
disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked,
for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot
from being caught in a trap.
Wisdom produces honor in our lives and protects us from trouble. Wise people know the difference from right and wrong and choose to do what's right. More than that, wisdom is choosing to apply God's truth and principles to our daily relationships and situations.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
