Thinking of the Moutains

Help them rebuild by enjoying the area and spending some money.

As we hear of the damage, the destroyed homes, the lost of lives, one of the ways we can help is by visiting the Smokies  sometimes in 2017.

Large Elk in the valley

Enjoyed getting to shot this elk in the Cataloochee Valley.

Praying for the rain to stop the wild fires in the Smokies as well tonight.

Nature is the only place left

Without a place to escape too, with love ones or with only yourself, we become an object, a speck on the metro or a blimp on the highway.

It’s only in nature that I can think and realize we are nothing in the cosmos but everything to God.

It doesn't take much to make me happy in nature.

ICE show at Opry Mills

The craftsmanship to be able to make these wonderful sculptures is amazing and we love to see what they are going to do different years.

This year it was Rudolph the Red nose Reindeer. It was awesome and the ice slide is fun as well.

We have moved into our new building since our last turkey giveaway and this year we purchased 330 turkeys to give to our community…and as it is each year it’s such a blessing to meet all the people who come out and within two hours all the turkeys were gone.
