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"!!!

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

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