Saturday, Chuck wanted to take me to a place in College
Park that was supposed to be similar to Black Dog Salvage in
Roanoke, VA. It was closed. Several businesses on the main
strip in College Park were closed. Economy must have hit them
hard. We decided to go to Orange Ave. to look in some
of the antique stores. On the way, the scenic way, we saw these
people doing some sort of charity run in their underwear.

Do not fear change, for I am making you a new creation, with old things passing away and new things continually on the horizon. When you cling to old ways and sameness, you resist My work within you. I want you to embrace all that I am doing In your life, finding your security in Me alone. It is easy to make an idol of routine, finding security within the boundaries you build around your life. Don’t try to force-fit today into yesterday’s mold. Instead, ask Me to open your eyes, so you can find all I have prepared for you in this precious day of Life.
Then in Streams in the Desert I read;
Be patient, O sufferer! The result of the Refiner’s fire will more than compensate for our trials, once we see the “eternal glory that far outweighs them all.: Just to hear His commendation, “Well done” (Matt. 25:21); to be honored before the holy angels; to be glorified in Christ, so that I may reflect His glory back to Him---ah! that will be more than enough reward for all my trials. from Tried by Fire
Always seem to read what I need to hear. Thank you.
