What is this world coming to?

This afternoon our news department started telling us the news: Bill Heard was closing their Chevrolet and their Cadillac/Saab dealerships in town, along with their other 11 dealerships around the country. You can read about it here. My thoughts immediately went to Mr. Tom and Ms. Cheryl. Tom and Cheryl are our Sunday School directors in the Preschool Department. Tom's worked at the Cadillac dealership as long as I've known him. I saw Cheryl tonight at church and just gave her a hug and told her I was sorry. She seemed okay, but please keep them in your prayers.

So then, I get to church and find out that vandals have spray painted swear words around the church property. When I got there, the children's minister (who happens to be Tom and Cheryl's son-in-law) was putting poster board over the door to the preschool hall to cover it up.

And what's up with the gas? How can gas stations run out of gas? It's really crazy. All this makes me wonder what's going on? Where are we headed? I just pray that God will give us the strength and wisdom to face whatever challenges continue to come our way.

On a positive note: Remember Daddy's vest? He was supposed to get it last Christmas and I only had the back done? Well, I finished the right front Monday night at the knitting group. Yea! So now I get to make a big, but fast project for me (the instant gratification will be motivating, honest), then do the left front. Also, I'm knitting some slippers and finished the first one at lunch yesterday and seamed it up last night. It's so cute! My coworkers were sufficiently impressed. I'll get pictures soon. I cast on for the second one today at lunch.

Hey Holly,
I surfed to your blog from Ravelry, I think we met at JoAnn's a couple of weeks ago in front of the knitting mags?
Anyway, my Mom and I were thinking of coming over to Panera one night (maybe tonight if I can work out football practice schedules) and checking out your group.
I love your blog, and the pics from the yarn shop in Macon are FABU! I'm so going over there.
Anyway, just thought I'd drop in and say hi!
