I hardly know how to properly honor the Lord for His goodness to Lighthouse tonight. Nothing seems adequate to say. I just want to publicly tell the Lord "Thank You, and praise You."
After many years of meetings, thousands of phone calls and emails, 900 plus pages filed with New Castle County, public meetings, and hundreds of thousands of engineering dollars - Our Record Plan has been approved.
Our project was on the "consent agenda" tonight, which means that unless someone requests that it be discussed, we would be automatically voted on. Well, about ten minutes into the meeting, our project was read, and no one questioned a thing, so the Council voted unanimously (with one member missing) to approve our Record Plan. The plan will be taken to the County Executive, Christopher Coons for signature.
The Record Plan means that all requirements of site engineering, entrances, storm water management, grading, etc. have been met and the County is approving moving forward to build. Our project is officially recorded this week in New Castle County as permission to begin building.
This is the Big Deal, and from here details are minor in comparison. We praise the Lord for His great leadership and trust Him to lead us through the financial decisions to break ground.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
