A Day Of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving from Tennessee to our family and friends. I love's a time of thanks for the many blessings we've  received.   I had a little ceramic pumpkin on our table this year that says it all "Praise God from whom all blessings flow."  My heart can't express enough the thanks I feel for family, friends and especially God's grace. Mom and Steve, the Farrows, and Kenny were able to join us for Thanksgiving. We all went around the table and shared what we were thankful for...Kenny mentioned that our friends become like family and he is so right!  All of us have a special bond and we praise the Lord for bringing us together once again.  The only one missing was Randy and we thought of him all day long.  I had prayed for a family to invite him over on this special day. Well, Randy called yesterday to say a family in his new church had invited him over! God is so good. I had phone calls from Brenda, Ashlee, Katie and Lindsey!  I miss you girls so much and it was special just to hear your voices.  I also talked with Dad and Mom Little. Even though we can't be with you all, our heart is. We send our love. Happy Thanksgiving♥

Short Mountain Fire

There's a fire on Short Mountain, just on the other side of Cloud Creek where we live.  Not sure the cause. It's been burning a couple days, starting Thursday sometime.  When Scott and I drove home Thursday night we could see the mountain all glowing with orange. The word around our community is that someone was burning brush without a fire permit.   Please keep us in your prayers...we have some dear neighbors that live up in these hills.  

The fire has reached the ridge of our mountain now and you can see the smoke from our house. This picture was taken from our front lawn.  It's dark now as I'm posting this...Looking out from our porch I can see over 10 areas that are glowing orange!

Randy Off To Southeastern Seminary

Randy left today for North Carolina.  He's been accepted  to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.  
He'll be working towards his Masters of Divinity degree with an emphasis in International Church Planting.  His classes don't officially start until January, but he left early on faith to seek employment (yep...a job!) and get settled.  I know he's so excited to start this journey and grow in his knowledge of God's Word. You're in our prayers Randy and may you bring glory to God in all you do. 

One last picture before Randy left for North Carolina

Randy spent his last day with buddy, Josh, working on Josh's latest car project.
