You just never know what surprises await here in downtown Jackson living at We Will Go Ministries. Sometime it's a friend you haven't seen for years showing up with a donation or a team. Sometimes it is a raccoon climbing out of a nearby storm drain. Sometimes it is the last neighbor you'd expect standing up and reading the Word of God out loud during a Bible study.
Tonight it was a totally unexpected firework display based just a few blocks from our house which meant we had a great view right from our own home base.
True, we miss our cats and the laid back days of our farm life, but I wouldn't trade this life for that one.
God has us right where we're supposed to be and tonight was just a tangible reminder of the unexpected blessings He has in store for us when we follow His will.
And for that, I am very thankful this Thursday one week before the 4th of July.
