Easter Week-End Trip

Great Smokey Mountains

Our 4 hour drive took a little over 6! We drove to our daughter's in Chattanooga for Easter week-end and decided to stay off the major highways.
Making the trekk through the Smokey Mountains on a beautiful Saturday morning was the most peaceful and relaxing time hubby and I have had in a long time. The sound of the breeze in the trees and the rushing cool water stream was better than any doctor could order. Stopping along the way to take pictures was almost more than hubby could stand but he was gracious enough to stop. Guess when you are the driver getting to your destination is top priority!

Sunday morning service at "The Net" church was another gift and truly an outstanding sermon by Pastor Ryan May. As we stood for the last prayer, hubby, our daughter and myself held hands and I knew God was telling me, "You are in the middle of a miracle!"

Through it all, I believe we are all "Standing in the middle of a miracle"! Don't let the world steal it away...look to your "miracle" and always remember the light will overcome the dark....ALWAYS!


  1. I love the Smokey Mountains. Have camped there. My daughters went to the National Wildlife Federation Camp there at Tremont.

  2. Beautiful! I love the streams, nothing like that sound of fresh water rushing by. Sound like a great trip, though hubby and I went on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and though beautiful, when we wanted to get off, were stuck for another 2 hours until the next stop....a but frustrating....

  3. Thank you! The fresh air and sound of the stream was like time had stood still!

  4. I grew up spending time in the Smokey Mountains. My grandmother lived in Chattanooga and would usually spend several weeks in the summer with her. Your photos of the scenery brought back sweet memories!

  5. Looks like a great trip! Like you said, "peaceful and relaxing"!

  6. How beautiful Terry!
