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! The wind is picking up, but so far, we have no rain this morning, although it is predicted to start this afternoon. There was so much rain yesterday that the water treatment plants are are maximum capacity. so everyone is urged to conserve water, no dishwashers no laundry, shower with a friend...wait! Just kidding about the shower!
I was watching Kelly Ripa with Josh Groban as her co-host this morning, so I am late with this blog. I really like Josh Groban and he is very funny when he is not singing. So, I took time to just enjoy the banter.
My cleaning ladies came in the rain yesterday and got rained on coming in the door with all their equipment. They did not seem to mind, and wanted to know the progress of the storm, so I turned on the TV for them. They did their usual good job and then loaded up their SUV in the rain and took off.
Well, I see from my window that the wind is picking up. I need to get my oaks trimmed, because a couple limbs are hanging down pretty far. I am not sure who to call, so I guess I will ask around for someone who is good and reliable. But God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord,
Let all who are discouraged take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord's greatness;
Let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the Lord and he answered me,
freeing me from all my fears.
Those who look to him for help will be
radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
I cried out to the Lord in my suffering and
he heard me.
He set me free from all my fears.
For the angel of the Lord guards all who fear him.
and He rescues them.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
