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 air is about one degree cooler these days and darkness comes earlier in the evening, so fall is slowly creeping up on us. The sun is still very hot and probably will be for another month or so, but this is Florida!
I don't quite know how I will take the van out today, because the plastic liner in the bumper came loose yesterday and is touching the street. I am going to try to reach it with my grabber and see if it gives, otherwise, I will just wait for Ray to come by this evening and see if he can take care of it.
The Geico claims adjuster came by yesterday to assess the damage and, Oh, My!, he was a gorgeous young man! He did not think the damage was serious and snapped the bumper back in place, even though some of the bolts are still out. I have an appointment with Maher collision center for Monday, so I will have to drive it the rest of the week as is.
I had an appointment with my Chiropractor yesterday afternoon, and afterwards, drove to the Park just in time to see the tree guys working on the huge oak that blew over during the storm. It certainly did not take them long to get the huge limbs sawed through and cut up, leaving piles of sawdust! They certainly got a lot of mulch out of that once beautiful tree! They probably had a lot of work to do at the other County parks, too.
My yard is still messy, since my yard crew did not come yesterday, but I expect them today. they are probably trying to catch up since the storm kept them from working much for a week.
The yard is still very wet and they will most likely leave grooves from the heavy riding mower they use. Oh, well...
Yesterday when I opened the front door, a little, fat frog hopped across the mat to see if any bugs were leftover from the night light. Unfortunately, he leaves his calling cards all over the place, as do the lizards who gather under the light! But, God is still good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
O Israel, how can you say the Lord does
not see your troubles?
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 wait
on the Lord will 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, Amaryllis
