Blessings on Our Trip To Florida

We had a blessing on our way to Florida.

We always take the scenic route after we leave Hattiesburg, Mississippi to see the beautiful countryside of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia before cutting South to Tallahassee, Florida.

When we about three miles from Donaldsonville, Georgia, we stopped at the Johnson Family Market to purchase some fig preserves. When we started to leave, our car wouldn't start. Fortunately, Roger's high school friend, Betty Williams, came to our rescue. We always try to visit Betty on our way through town, but this time she helped us get a room at the local Super 8 motel and contacted her mechanic.

Her mechanic fixed our car early the next morning while we visited with Betty, her twin brother-Bobby and his wife-Pat.

We all talked about how fortunate we were to have car trouble near a community where we had friends instead of one of the many towns or somewhere along the road as we'd traveled through on our way to spend time with our family in Florida. We all gave God the praise for his blessing and provision for us.
