Flea Market Heaven

Canton, TX - flea market heaven!

     Canton, TX is known as the world famous flea market heaven.  Keep it a secret tho, too many people already know, lol.  We just got back from our spring voyage to this little town. It was a great trip, despite a lil 'spice of life', as my friend put it.  I got some cool stuff but just going and looking is worth it in itself. They have lots of decorative sign sayings but my favorite one this time was   'A smoking section in a restaurant is like a peeing section in a swimming pool'.  How funny but true!
     If I could sum up this trip in one word, it would be 'Protected.'  The following aren't negatives of the trip but just examples of His protection over us wherever we are.

  1]  On the way down, two ceiling fan blades broke off but no one was hit by them.
  2]  I sucker punched the towel rack with my bottom lip but I didn't knock out my tooth that occasionally pops out.
  3]  When it rained Saturday morning, we had the option to go to the indoor market place.
  4]  We did have a tire blowout on the way home but it didn't cause a wreck or hurt the other tire next to it.
  5]  A beer toting man came to our door but went away peacefully after my dad gave him some matches so he could light his cigarette.
  6]  Even tho we spent a noisy night camped on an access ramp off the freeway, we had everything we needed.
  7]  Although the wait for tire repair service tested/zapped my patience completely, it was resolved and at a lower cost.
  8]  Everything was just as we left it when we got home, perfectly fine.

   This is just a short list of the few ways I know that we were blessed.  God is good all the time, even in the trying moments of life.
