Good News!

When I was a kid there was a shop that opened on a main thoroughfare in my neighborhood with a huge blue and white awning reading "GOOD NEWS FOR ISRAEL!"
As a Jewish kid growing up in a not very Jewish area of the midwest I was immediately drawn to it as we passed it by in the car on the way to get ice cream.

All thoughts of ice cream (one of the big treats of my childhood) quickly vanished as my 8 year old self filled with excitement.

What could this great place be?!
A shul?
An Israeli Jewish bookstore?
A school?
Kosher food?
And could we please please stop and see???

My dad slammed the lid on the whole thing pretty quick when he told me it was not only not Jewish or Israeli but in fact a store front for Christian missionaries.
I was crushed of course, and looked at that enticing awning with great dissapointment thereafter.

I do have some actual good news though (that whole post above just jumped unbidden into my head as I typed the title- funny how that works.)

My brother is out of the hospital!!!

After three weeks of uncertaintly and excessive shlepping around he is finally home.
I thank you all for your support through all of this.
