Arbingdon, Virginia- Patience of a Farmer



 Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming.  See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.  You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.  Don't grumble against each other brothers, or you will be judged.  The Judge is standing at the door!

Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.  As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered.  You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about.  The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

James 5:7-11 NIV

Root Beer Float at Ellis Soda Shoppe in Abingdon, Virginia


We visited Abingdon, Virginia this afternoon while staying in Bristol.  It has a lot of history dating back to Daniel Boone.  In 1760, frontiersman, Daniel Boone, named the area Wolf Hills, after his dogs were attacked by a pack of wolves during a hunting expedition.  We stopped at the Ellis Soda Shoppe that was once a drug store.  They had many of the old drug store items on display.  I liked the 2 dozen or more tin platters hanging on the wall of the Coca-Cola Girls.  It gave the old country drug store a nostalgic atmosphere of days 'gone by'.
