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! While I see lots of clouds around, still the prediction is for a clear night so the crescent moon, Venus and another star will be lined up for viewing pleasure tonight. But the sun is shining and there is a chance of much needed rain.
My cleaning ladies are coming early today, so I have to make sure the table is cleared off for them. I tend to let mail accumulate before tossing ads and stuff that I put off reading. Bills I open right away,, but at this time of year, there are lots of charities seeking donations and it is impossible to give to everyone!
I drove to Applebee's for my supper salad yesterday and coming back the sun blinded me as I was pulling into the garage. I know the time changes this weekend, so it will be later than it was yesterday unless I decide to go earlier. I am too short for the visor to do me much good at that time of day.
Well, the Cubs won last night and I hope they will do it again tonight! I like Ben Zobrist and of course, he and Joe Maddon used to be with the Rays, so they get my loyalty. Brandon Guyer is with Cleveland and he used to be a Ray, also, but I am still rooting for the Cubs!
I see the squirrels peeking around the oak trees and getting as many acorns as they can. And, BTW,, the acorns are starting to fall, so autumn is definitely here! God is good!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
1 Chronicles 16:31-36
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice!
Tell all the nations that the Lord is king.
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst forth
Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise
before the Lord!
For he is coming to judge the earth.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Cry out, "Save us, O God of our salvation!
Gather and rescue us from among the nations,
so we can thank your holy name
and rejoice and praise you.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.!
And all the people shouted "Amen!" and
praised the Lord.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
