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! We have another cool, sunny day starting out, which will get warmer  later on, but not as hot as last month. I am still using my A/C and will continue until later in the month, when we get the first really cool spell!

I went and got my flu shot yesterday. I usually get that in Sept. but just neglected to until I purposed to do it when I had the chance. It didn't hurt and my arm is not sore, so there is no reason not to get it done!

I am technically ignorant and especially with the iphone. I heard the ping which meant I had a message on messenger yesterday afternoon, so I pulled the phone out of my pocket and saw a message from a cousin in CA. Just as I read it, a blob popped up just below it which said if I wanted to video to click on the blob, which I did, not knowing any better. Well, much to my surprise, I heard a phone ringing and then my cousin answered! There was my face showing in the corner, and just before we hung up, I saw his face! We had never spoken in person before and have just been in touch by posting. He is one of the relatives discovered by another cousin in England who did a family history using Ancestry and other sources. The world is getting smaller!

I took a ride in the park later on and quite a few visitors were enjoying being outdoors. I saw a couple of large gopher tortoises munching on the grass and an anhinga on the weir. God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Ecclesiastes 12;9-13
Because the Teacher was wise; he taught the
people everything he knew. He collected proverbs
and classified them. Indeed, the Teacher taught
the plain truth, and he did so in an interesting way.

A wise teacher's words spur students to action and
emphasize important truths. The collected sayings of
the wise are like guidance from a shepherd

"But my child," he warned; there is no end of opinions
ready to be expressed. Studying them can go on forever
and become very exhausting!

Here is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands
for this is the duty of every person. God will judge us for
everything we do , including every secret thing, whether
good or bad.

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

Love and hugs,
