GOOD NEWS : Polaris has been a partner with the State of Alabama since 2016, and the company can now add electric off-road vehicles to its Made in Alabama portfolio. The Huntsville facility is one of Polaris’ largest manufacturing plants, which makes the Slingshot, the RANGER, and most recently the RANGER Xp Kinetic. Several companies in Alabama are on the cutting edge of research and development of electric vehicle technology, a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

He was a man of His Word :
His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
Today is Holy Saturday.
Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away.
Matthew 27:59-60 /
Holy Saturday is a day of remembrance and waiting. The death of Christ is the ultimate representation of His love for us and of His obedience to His Father. An act of full trust in God's will, this pure obedience to the end and perfect humility of the Son constitutes the foundation, the beginning of His victory.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Remember He died so we may live. Blessings to you this Good Friday.
