Elsie Mae on Market Burned Down

one door had just been installed
 and all the glass,          next to be 
                               was the awning...
      to be put back like the original...
the historic black ironwork columns
 would have popped 
with the doors painted black
...and the window sign was gonna look so great.

 God can give a crown of beauty for ashes...
Excited about what God will do.

To be continued...

I am so sorry for the loss of the beautiful store. I saw on facebook that one of the men lost all his tools. I'm praying for everyone. God has a plan but sometimes it's hard for us to see what that plan is.

Lezlee-
My mouth is gaping open!!!!!

I didn't hear about this. This is the first I've seen of it. I was so surprised to see this in my feed.
...but not surprised at YOUR FAITH nor the POWER OF GOD!!!

Praying for y'all! Pat
