I love my community…

I love my city!

I truly do. Today (as many days) I was reminded of how fortunate I am to live in such a beautiful place. I work in the Fairfax area of Jacksonville Florida, and most days I look forward to walking to one of the many local eateries near my office.

Today for lunch I decided to walk down to Bagel Love on the corner of Hershel Street and St. John’s Avenue. I believe they have the best and most fresh bagels in all of Jacksonville. I normally have the BLT on a Sundried Tomato Bagel which I love to eat. This flavor Lucious little treat happens to be my favorite of all bagels.

So today, imagine my disappointment when the circumstances would not allow me to experience old faithful. Apparently, everyone else had the sundried tomato on their agenda, so I was forced to live on the edge and try something different.

I was not sure how my favorite sandwich would taste on anything other than my old tried and true Sundried! So I mustered up the nerve, considered my all of my options finally deciding to try the BLT on an Everything bagel.

I just have to tell you; my taste buds came alive! I never realized that a bagel could have so much flavor. I would highly recommend that you regularly give bagel love your breakfast and lunch business and try the everything bagel (leaving sundried tomato for me) and you will not be dissatisfied.

While you’re in the neighborhood, you should consider walking down one of the many tree-lined streets and enjoy the variety of the early 20th century houses with beautifully manicured lawns. There are no cookie cutter, sim city domiciles in this community. Each home offers elegant southern charm and looks much different than the house next door.

If you happen to be in the area on a Sunday, I would personally like to invite you to join our family at the Point. We are located at 4300 St. John’s Avenue and would love it if you worshiped with us at 11 am. The Point Jax in Fairfax glorifies our beautiful Savior by making much of Him in the community. So join us as we offer grace and hope to all who visit through incredible worship, prayer and the ministry of the word!

I hope to see you soon! And by the way, Bagel love is open on Sunday so you can enjoy fresh squeezed Florida Orange Juice and a breakfast bagel before coming to the POINT!
