O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. Ps 118
This morning I do give thanks to the Lord! The meeting last night went very smoothly. There was very good attendance- thanks to those who came! I didn't count, but I would guess at least 80 (or more?) from LBC and then some more from the Community. The only concerns raised were respectful questions about lighting, entrances, the dangerous intersection that we already have, etc.
Overall as Community people left, they shook my hand and gave their happy support. There was no one there against the project. Amen! Councilwoman McClellan publicly said it was the shortest Community Meeting she ever had.
So, we live to plan another day. As our economy tanks, that actually favors our project somewhat with quicker permissions and cheaper construction. Our builder (Jim Nowland) told me last night that contractors are begging for work. Construction materials are low also. This is a good time to be building.
The issue of course on our side is continuing to raise the money to put us in the position come Fall of next year. IT IS IN GOD'S HANDS. HE IS NOT EFFECTED BY THE ECONOMY EVEN IF HIS CHILDREN ARE. WE TRUST HIM, WE THANK HIM, HE IS GOOD.
I know He has not brought us this far to make us stumble for lack of money in the final stretch of the race. We wait on Him.
Love Him today!
