A little side trip!!!

One day last week, Pappy and I ran an errand for my Mom.  On the way home, I needed to make a quick stop at Kroger and when we got off the Interstate, we saw a sign for the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum.  I had been there once before, several years ago, but since Pappy had never been, I talked him into (it didn't take much arm twisting....;-) taking a few side streets until we arrived at our destination!!!  It was so worth the trip.  It was a hot and muggy day, but we parked the car and took a walking tour thru the gardens.  Here are a few of the sights we saw......














Have I mentioned how much I'm enjoying spending time with this fellow......


It's so worth taking the time to "stop and smell the roses"!!!

Job 37:14
Pay attention to this, Deb (Job).
    Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

Blessings,
Deb
