Mountain Trip

Some of our sweet friends in Nashville invited Justin, Collier and me to join them at their cabin in the mountains. We of course could not turn down such a fun and gracious invite. We haven't seen these friends in a few years and it was wonderful to reconnect and visit with them and their beautiful children. The cabin is in the Sunday School Assembly at Monteagle, TN. It is such a neat little community and looks like it would be loads of fun for the kids in the summer time. It was a beautiful day on Saturday and we couldn't have asked for a better time with such wonderful and loving friends!

Now, we prepare for our week of Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for, we are showered with blessings and our cup is certainly over flowing! I think about God and how thankful that I am for the relationship that He allows us to have with Him - that He sent His Son for our sake to this earth to live a perfect life and then to the cross for our sins! I am thankful
that He is always present and faithful, even when I have gone astray. I am thankful that He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. I love that He goes ahead and behind us! How He is my strength and that I can do all things through Him. I am thankful, I am unworthy, I am sinful and yet I am redeemed! Praise be to God for all that I have and for all that I am!

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.-Galatians 2:20

I'm looking forward to seeing our family and having the time to relax and visit! I wish you and your family a wonderful, fun and safe Thanksgiving!

Sweet Girl....I love your heart. you share your feelings so well. Thank You. I, too, give thanks to our Lord for all our many blessings! Many years ago HE allowed my path to cross with your Mom and Dads. What a blessing they have been to many. I hope you will give them my love this Thanksgiving Day. I send my love your way, too!
