The Advantages of Companionship

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 pleasantly dry even though the roof is still dripping from the rain we had yesterday and apparently, last night. I put the last of my recycle stuff in the bin and got dripped on.

We had very warm weather until about noon; then a very loud thunderstorm came and lasted until school was out. Then the sun shone brightly, so I got out to go to the bank, and could see gigantic clouds in the west. Sure enough, more thunderstorms came around supper time. And it was noisy!

Daryl and Matthew drove to Knoxville Saturday to see the Gators lose to the Vols for the first time in about seven years or so, but, of course, they were hoping for a win when they went on free tickets. One large benefit of their trip was seeing Steve Spurrier and his wife ride by very close on a golf cart! The ole ball coach, himself!

The parking situation at church is improving, since Pastor Kevin's pleas for more people to park on the west side. I have found two parking spaces right away the last two Sundays, which means I can get my walker out and get into church without having to wait ten or fifteen minutes.

I drove to the park yesterday while I was out and noticed the water was up to the weir edge, after the rain. The squirrels were running about and enjoying themselves, but not many people were out and about. But God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Two people can accomplish more than
twice as much as one: they get a better
return for their labor. If one person falls
the other can reach out and help. But people
who are alone when they fall are in real trouble.
And on a cold night, two under the same blanket
can gain warmth from each other. But how can
one be warm alone? A person standing alone
can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand
back to back and conquer. Three are even better,
for a triple- braided cord is not easily broken.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
