Happy Sunday to all. I hope this finds you safe and healthy.
It is a beautiful day here - the sunrise was again beautiful. Sunrises and sunsets have been exquisite the past few days. I hear it may be because of the ash in the air that has traveled from the west coast in the atmosphere. It may be - or God is just a wonderful artist!
We may have storms come through overnight tonight, then it gets back to 90's for a few days. On Thursday - the day of fall equinox - we are to be in the 70's!!! That is my perfect type of weather.
It seems just like that - the hummingbirds are gone in my area. I guess they know things we don't.
I got a card this week from a reader - it contained a nice little letter. Thank you, Diane R. from IL for reaching out. It was greatly appreciated. I wish I had an answer as to why you can't comment. Maybe try the anonymous route, and then end with your name.
- Worked on my houseplants. Cleaned them up and removed all dead pieces and leaves - rearranged them for more sunlight

- I went out and cleaned out the tomato plants. There was a lot of browned leaves and stems. Cleaned and still growing.

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all thy wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in thee, I will sing praise to thy name, O Most High.
Dear Lord, I thank You for all the wonderful blessings that touch my life each day. I will continue to tell all I meet of my love for You. Thank You for this lovely day. AMEN
