As many of you know I just came home from a vacation to Florida. I love visiting FL for so many reasons. I lived there from the age of 8 to 18 and I have so many happy wonderful childhood memories there. Whenever I visit it feels like home. One of my most favorite memories from my childhood is Space Shuttle launches. I grew up on the Space Coast close to Cape Canaveral and whenever the Space Shuttle was going to launch it was always a big deal. My parents would load us up in our VW van and we would head for the beach. We would pack a lunch and all our beach toys and make a day of it. We would listen to the radio when the launch got close and always count it down….10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1….Space shuttle Discovery has liftoff….. We would hoot and holler and watch as the space shuttle would blast into space. It was always an amazing day full of fun and love for our country and community. The day wasn’t over till you heard the sonic boom. Mission accomplished! J
It goes like this….It’s so amazing, how you love me….It’s so amazing…. Jesus, my God.
And I have to say…It is so amazing how God loves me. I feel blessed beyond measure and I just had to share this story of God’s goodness and mercy in my life!
