Seasons come and go.

Standard

I realized yesterday that a season in my life has came and gone.  I had a different date in my mind to look forward too .. but realized last night that the actual date i was looking for has passed.  I was happy .. then very overwhelmed and humbled that God found me fit to bless for the last year of my life.  I know that without his covering i would not have made it through this season.. I look back at the season and choices i had made and look at me and my little family now and can honestly whoe heartidly see just how AWESOME God is.. i could type for hours and give stories of his blessing and power he has showed me over the last year.. Some one like me that is.. It just goes to show his mercy and grace is sufficent. I woke up in my sleep last night singing words to a song that say.. Take this world and Give me Jesus…. and from a different song  that says this.. What if our blessings come through rain drops what if your healing comes through tears.. what if a thousand sleepless nights is what it takes to know your near.. what if the trials of life are your mercies in disguise..  WOW…. my season certainly consisted of rain drops, tears, MANY sleepless nights and trials..  I am truly blessed in my new season.. Hold on and you will be too!!

How can you move when they’re weighing you down
What can you do when you’re tied to the ground, yeah
You carry your burdens, heavy like gravity
Just let them go now, there’s freedom in release

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be afraid

Can you imagine what it’s like to be free
Well, send those bags packing, they’re not what you need
Abandon your troubles on the side of the street
Just let them go now, believe me

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be afraid

There’s nothing hold you back now, just run

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be
You don’t have to be afraid

New traffic signal to begin operation in Lufkin

  •  TxDOT press release The Lufkin Daily News

The Texas Department of Transportation is advising motorists to use caution when traveling thru the intersection of Chestnut Street ( FM 58 ) and Whitehouse Drive. On Tuesday, Sept. 20, the existing traffic control will be changed to a fully-operational traffic signal.

The new signal will be placed in full operation sometime during the middle of the morning. The new signal will have steel poles with mast arms, video detection and audible pedestrian push buttons. Drivers will also see new pavement on FM 58 and new markings throughout the intersection. The new signal is expected to improve safety for drivers and pedestrians.

 

TxDOT urges motorists to use caution when traveling through the intersection. Motorists should expect to see workers doing final inspections and cleanup in the area for the next few weeks. Remember, traffic fines double when workers are present.
