I’m so proud of our new water tower out on OO Hwy, across from the airport. It will be an impressive landmark for this community, and I hope it will mean higher water pressure, especially on Sunday mornings.
I’m also proud of the rows of stores that now border East Main and West Main. I spent a couple of mornings last week, helping to “watch the store” for my son because one of the employees couldn’t be there, and I was thrilled to see several people strolling the sidewalk and window shopping. It reminded me of how downtown used to be in years gone by. I believe these shoppers are a portent of better days to come for our fair city, and I’d like to see it really “bustle,” again, wouldn’t you?
I took a lengthy drive today and was totally “lost” most of the time. This is something I love to do, and I guess it’s a good thing that I love it, because being lost is a state I often find myself in, even when I’d rather not. But today, was just what I needed; a day of memories, prayer, and enjoyment of the beauty and bounty that God supplies. I take to heart the scripture that says “My Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills,” and I like to ride around, and look over our holdings. Today I saw lots of things that I hadn’t seen before and I thanked God for allowing me the means and the freedom to do so.
I feel that right now we need to pray for our country, for the people in U.S. Embassies, and all our people who are scattered abroad. Pray for all people everywhere who are caught up in evil consequences, not of their choosing.
