the land of the waterfalls-transylvania county

A couple of weekends ago, Daniel and I went camping with my family outside of Brevard, NC. Despite the hot weather, it was a blast! We ate hobos and smores over the campfire, went swimming in the waterfalls and even went blueberry pickin'! It was sweet time away from busy city life and very much needed!

dedication...even on vacation
If you are looking for a sweet, quiet and relaxing place to get away, I highly recommend the Sourwood Inn off the Blud Ridge Parkway ("thank you" to mom and dad mcnamee for the gift certificate!). Daniel and I visited this sanctuary for the first time this past weekend and it was wonderful! Despite yucky weather, we managed to thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The weekend included soaking in bubble baths, eating yummy food, reading, photography and exploring the of our favorite spots close by. I am more and more convinced that the average Amercian lifestyle is way too busy and taking time to be still for His Glory is really more of what God intends for His people.

it's bigger than me!

"Bless the Lord, all His works, in all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!" Psalm 103:22

"They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness. The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made." Psalm 145:6-9

What an amazing Creator we have! The intricacy of this sunflower is such a testimony to God's imagination and sovereignty. Details are not forgotten, whether in the formation of a flower blossom or in our own lives. When I take a step back and remember this, it's easier to have an eternal perspective and unfading joy. Praise Him!
