About four years ago I felt such peace and joy as I stumbled upon an unexpected blessing, this beautiful scene in downtown Wetumpka.
It is difficult to know that this 163 year-old structure is now gone. Prayers for Wetumpka as they rebuild their community after yesterday's devastating storm. #Our67

GOOD NEWS: The Lodge at Gulf State Park is back!
The Lodge at Gulf State Park is appealing to both business and leisure travelers. The partnership with Hilton Hotels and Valor Hospitality establishes a world-class environment that guests can count on, which should generate repeat visits to a beautiful area of our state.
On a more sentimental note, Gulf State Park is part of a tradition many of us grew up with. Now that The Lodge is up and running again, new generations will be able to create memories similar to the ones we all hold dear.

"And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it. Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it any better." - Martin Luther King Jr.
