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! Yesterday we had bright, blue weather, but today we have overcast skies for some reason. I have not heard any rain predictions, and the air is still cooler than usual, so maybe the sun will come out later on.
I will try to get my flu shot today. I intended to do that last month, but kept forgetting. It doesn't take long and I don't have any ill effects from it, so I make it a point to get one every year.
I finally got a call back from the tree guys, after leaving 3 messages, so he will be out tomorrow to give an estimate on the trimming. Soon the leaves will start falling so if I get the trimming done now, maybe there won't be quite as much mess.
Well, I baked my pumpkin rolls yesterday and my, they are good! I am waiting for a cooler day to try the pumpkin soup, and I have yet to make or buy a pumpkin pie, but that will come! I remember when we used to vacation in North Carolina and visit Pumpkin Corner to see all the white and orange pumpkins piled up for sale by the roadside. Good times!
I went through the Park yesterday and saw that the huge root of the old oak tree that fell over is trimmed down a lot and will soon be removed. The two palmetto trees that were damaged when it fell down are still crushed looking, but I'm sure they will survive. God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
Psalm 139 :1-6
O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me;
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my every thought when far
You chart the path ahead of me
and tell me when to stop and rest.
Every moment you know where I am.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You both precede and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too great for me to know!...
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
