Welcome to Willy's, our local soft serve ice-cream stand! Come along with me and let's have the last cone of the summer! The second picture is our adorable granddaughter at Willy's a couple years ago, can you tell she's getting ice-cream? The third picture is Phil ordering, next is the two of us this evening. And the last picture is a little girl who is jumping clear off the ground in anticipation of her treat! We were there tonight because it is their last night of the year. They close in the fall, and don't re-open till spring. Willy's has been around as long as I can remember, and you can tell the seasons by whether it is open or not. It is sad to see them close at the end of summer, and a joy to drive past and see they are finally open, it means that spring is here! Sometimes it seems that Willy's itself is changing the seasons, but we all know that's not true.
Praise be to the name of God forever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes times and seasons;
he sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
I thank you and praise you, O God of my fathers..."
