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! I did not hear it, but there must have been a pretty good rain last night, because the porch was wet this morning. It looks like the water will be a long time draining out of the gutters by the street, because they still have not dried up from last week's rain.
I am hoping I hear something from the shop today; hopefully, that my van is ready. They told me two days, but I don't know if that included Monday or not. My van is old and needs work, but it is comfortable to me, and I am used to the way it operates. The spiffy looking Town and Country is too big for me to feel comfortable, as I said yesterday. Simple things for simple folks! That's me!
My Bird of Paradise has several blooms on it now, and the crepe Myrtle is winding down for the fall. The pink blooms are almost gone, but my, how it has grown this summer, since being trimmed all the way back last fall!
I forgot to mention that Sunday, on the way to church, I drove by Lynch Lake Park, and saw a large flock of ibis gathered on one side of the lake and right in the middle, was a roseate spoonbill! The pink was outstanding ! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Happy are those who fear the Lord.
Yes, happy are those who delight in doing
what he recommends.
Their children will be successful everywhere;
and entire generation of godly people will
They themselves will be wealthy,
and their good deeds will never be forgotten.
When darkness overtakes the godly light
will come bursting in.
They are generous, compassionate and righteous.
All goes well for those who are generous,
who lend freely and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
