This Week's Scripture


"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!


We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Our Family Vacation!


We are here! It's All Good cabin!
Viewing the beautiful streams/rivers in the Smoky Mountain Park Forest.


Four tired toddlers!

Happy Birthday to me!! What a blessing!

More of my blessings!






Here is the world's best snack for a family of 10!!!!!
The girls LOVE Strawberry Shortcake!
It seems like they rode this ride 100 times!!
and this one too!




At the top!!!!!! the very top!! Amazing Views and great fall weather!

The best seafood restaurant in Knoxville!! If you want good ol'Louisiana taste then don't miss going here!



We are home and it was just an awesome family vacation! Of course you have "those" moments especially when there are 7 children on the vacation!! All in all they were very good and all of us enjoyed our time together! We left last Sunday morning, made it straight through to Tennessee to our destination: It's All Good! A cabin viewing the Smoky Mountains! Just a great view and don't you just love the name! It WAS all good and definitely all God! Here are a few pictures of our time together! I was blessed to celebrate my 39th Birthday in the Smokies! We went to DollyWood and Splash Country as well! If any of you are looking for a wholesome spectacular family theme park then consider DollyWood! The people were super kind, God is not hidden or forgotten about and they give free water throughout the park!! The roller coaster rides were fun, the new Battle something was one of those "You will get wet" rides, and the big bag of Kettle Corn was a winner snack!! The last day we rode to the top of the mountain for one amazing view. We had one foot in Tennessee and one foot in North Carolina and the weather felt like our fall! Before we left the area, we ate at Tommy's cousin's restaurant Bayou Bay! A small restaurant with a huge Louisiana-tasting food in Knoxville! Enjoy the pictures!

Grampa and I are so glad that you all had such a great time. We have in the past, probably walked in some of the same places that you all did. Looks like the kids really had a great time.
Hopefully I will get out of the hospital Friday. And then I will get to see the kids. When I can't walk, or move easily, I think of Jesus and how he had to suffer for us. I am trying to be positive. Having the kids pictures here at the hospital with me, helps to ease some of the pain. When I look at their smiling faces, it's the best medicine. lol
Just keep posting pics,your doing a great job. Love you all,
Grandma.
