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 are supposed to get down in the fifties at night this weekend for our first cold front, but then the temps will pop back up to the eighties, so just a taste of fall is coming!
At 9:30 yesterday, I heard the yard crew working. They just edged and blew, because the grass has slowed down its growth. I was expecting my handy man to come and do some tasks for me, but I did not know what time he would be here, so I took off for CVS after lunch to pick up a prescription and some other things, I had just come home when Rick drove up, so Good timing!
He helped carry the bags in and then I handed him the list I had made. So now the mailbox is lowered, so I can reach inside better, the porch is power washed, and a necklace that had come off in the car and somehow gotten draped over the slide that the power seat glides on is recovered. It had been there for a couple weeks, but a friend just discovered it Sunday, I had not been able to get it out, so Rick took about a minute and he had it out.
Meanwhile, Cheryl, came to clean while Rick was power washing and she had to come in the garage side door. So, the house is clean partially outside and mostly inside. Believe me , I am grateful for all the people who have committed to help me. Plus which, Ray came to take the van in this morning for repairs and service! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
So I tell you, don't worry about every day
life----whether you have enough food, drink,
and clothes. Doesn't life consist of more than
food and clothing? Look at the birds. They
don't need to plant or harvest or put food in
barns because your Heavenly Father feeds them.
And you are far more valuable to him than they
are. Can all your worries add a single moment to
your life? Of course not.
And why worry about your clothes? Look at the lilies
and how they grow. They don't work or make their
clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed
as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonder-
fully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow,
won't he more surely care for you? You have so little faith!
So don't worry about having enough food or drink or
clothing . Why be like the pagans who are so deeply
concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father
already knows all your needs, and he will give you all
you need from day to day if you live for him and make the
Kingdom of God your primary concern.
So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring
its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
