Isaiah 43

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 skies have cleared and we have sunshiny, cool weather Now! By cool, I mean really cool compared to what we have had. We are down in the sixties, now, and it takes awhile to warm up into the high seventies. We may even reach 80 in a couple days. I am wearing longer sleeves and jeans, which I never wear in the summer because I think they are too hot, but they feel good, now!

My friend, Gil, gave me some of his mixture of collards, blackeyed peas, and other ingredients, the other day, which I have been enjoying for several meals. For supper last night, I baked Trader Joe's cornbread mix and had a pan of cornbread to go with the "stew". Very tasty! Of course, I had a piece of the cornbread with my breakfast today!

I took a ride through the park yesterday, after shopping, and saw that another large oak tree has fallen over into the canal. That makes 3 or 4 now in the canal. I also have seen the middle sized gopher tortoise and black turtles on the banks of the weir.. And in my front yard. the squirrels are still busy hoarding acorns and eating them on the wall of the porch and leaving the hulls behind.

There is no further news about my sister, so she is still in God's hands..

Yesterday I was so absorbed in writing about the battery problems, that I neglected to send the scripture, so I will include that today, since I have one reader who only reads the scripture I send and doesn't bother with the rest, but God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

Isaiah 43:1-6,8
"Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you go through deep waters and great
trouble, I will be with you. When you go through
rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When
you walk through the fires of oppression, you
will not be burned up; the flames will not
consume you. For I am the Holy God...
because you are precious to me. You are
honored and I love you."

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

Love and hugs,
