Most of the time Pappy and I work around home on Saturday. There's ALWAYS so much to be done around our homes as they get older. A couple of weeks ago, because neither of us really felt so great, we decided to take a little trip. We only had to travel about 1.5 hours from home and got to see some of God's beauty.
You might want to get you a tall glass of iced tea, or a cup of coffee because I'm forewarning you......
We drove about 2 miles up the mountain to get to our destination.
Two very winding miles where sometimes I thought we were meeting ourselves!
This was my view sitting at our table at lunch.
I was completely wowed!
I told Pappy this showed me just a bit of God's view of the world.
He sees the "big picture" and I only get a view of certain things.
A huge cross that lights up and shines down on the valley below.
Looking back toward the restaurant from the "gazebo", a little overlook built just for those visiting the restaurant. I've gotta be honest here. I am EXTREMELY afraid of heights, so Pappy had to take a few of the pictures from the gazebo because I just could not go out on the edge, even though the area was enclosed. Yes, that's a fear I need to ask God to help me get over!
The rest of these pictures were taken from the "sky walk". It was built out over these natural rock formations and the view was absolutely awesome. I'm thinking we'll have to go back once the leaves change colors. Can you even imagine the view then?
Pappy and me.....squinting from the sun.
Also, and this is just so very neat.....
on Sunday after we took this little trip,
we were watching a local TV show, "Tennessee Uncharted", and would you believe that McCloud Mountain was featured? I recognized the fence at the Sky Walk!
HOPE everybody has an awesomely blessed day!
Breathing in Grace,
