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! Well, I know it is hard to rejoice when you are flooded in or have large trees fall on your house, but God is in control!
I am really tired of this rain and wind but thankful that I am snug inside and that my untrimmed trees stayed strong,and only small twigs and branches are littering the front yard. Across the street in Cheryl's yard a large branch from a maple tree, I think, is draped over her fence and another large one is in her front yard. She has a pool in the back and it is probably full of leaves and trash.
We still have a band of the hurricane hanging over us, and more rain and wind is expected today. Schools are still closed, but I think most businesses are still open.
I have the protection of a huge, tall hedge on the north side of my house. It belongs to my neighbors and keeps any grass from growing because of the shade, and of course, my handyman has to trim it periodically, but in times like these, it makes a good wind brake.
We have no flooding in this neighborhood, and, as far as I know everyone around here is okay, so that is a good thing. Plus the power is on! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Oh, the joys of those who trust in him!
Let the Lord's people show him reverence,
for those who honor him will have all
Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry.
But those who trust in the Lord will never
lack any good thing.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
