The Apple Barn in the Fall

These are some pics of our recent visit to the Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge Tn.
We loved this Fall display!

We thought that the Ox made from corn was neat!

One of the several "Apple Barn" restaurants

Here is the actual barn,built in the very early 1900's that is currently home to the apple production & processing,the two story gift shop,and the cider bar.

Sunday, June 28
What an Awesome God we serve! Even when He tells us things we don't want to hear,we need to remember that He knows what is best for us. We are having a series of sermons this month on
unity and the text has come from Pauls letter to the church at Ephesus. We are blessed with a wonderful minister who is called to preach and he does it very well. Just before the service, my beautiful wife made the comment about a lady who sits a couple of rows in front of us who in a years time has never acknologed us with the least bit of proper politeness. We continued to talk about people who call themselves "Christian" but whose actions don't show it.
Now to my point, It just so happens that the sermon today was about being " imitators of God",
...." not to live as the Gentiles do... "Eph. 4:17. In my opinion, ( the gospel according to Adam ;-),
If we want to win our nation for Christ we must die to our worldly desires ....which means giving up OUR wants, whether in material "things"or our goals, which the world tells us to "Be all you can be" . The perfect car, house, clothes,career and popularity are things we must steer away from and seek God. God says to study His word "Diligently" God wants full reign of our lives and until we fully give in to what God wants for us and not what WE want,we will not impact our world as God calls us to do and most importantly, If we do not obey God in leaving the desires of the flesh we can not please Him.
I have personally been praying the "Prayer of Jabez" after reading the little book about that prayer written by Bruce Wilkinson, and I honestly have noticed God starting to work through me to His pleasure. During this upcomming "patriotic" week ask yourself " Have I led anyone to Christ lately?Do I love my country& am I willing to speak up and be heard and stand up for my rights? God has been SO good to America, we are so blessed, He DIED for us, the least we can do is LIVE for Him, Have a great Monday and God bless!

This photo has done miracles in many lives.

This is a picture NASA took with the Hubbell telescope.

Paul Harvey the preacher...

Paul Harvey says:
I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a
Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and
hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.
Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because
someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what's the big deal?
It' s not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts. They're
just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the
players on the field and to the fans going home from the game..
But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue. Yes, and this is the United
States of America, a country founded on Christian principles. According to our
very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than
200-to-1. So what would you expect--somebody chanting Hare Krishna? If I went to a football game Jerusalem, I wouldexpect to hear a Jewish prayer.
If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad, I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.
If I went to a ping pong match in China, I would expect to hear someone pray to
Buddha.And I wouldn't be offended. It wouldn't bother me one bit.
When in Rome .....but what about the atheists? another argument.
What about them? Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not going to pass
the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that's asking too much,
bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the
concession stand. Call your lawyer!
Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands
what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is
going to shake the world's foundations.
Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek, while our courts
strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, and to pray before we go to
sleep. Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now, a handful of people
and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.
God, help us. And if that last sentence offends you, well, just sue me.
The silent majority has been silent too long. It's time we tell that one or two
individuals who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn't
care what they want. It is time that the majority rules! & It's time we tell
them: "You don't have to pray; you don't have to say the Pledge of Allegiance;
you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him. That is
your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you are no longer going
to take our rights away. We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!"
God bless us, one and all...especially those who denounce Him.. God bless
America, despite all her faults. She is still the greatest nation of all. God
bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.
Let's make 2008, the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as
the foundation of our families and institutions.

Keep looking up.

Food for thought

Thought for the day:

" Occasionally men stumble over the truth, only to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and go on as if nothing ever happened."

welcome to my '' new" blog! As this is my first post, I find it important to explain the name of my blog: " Livin the life ". Most would assume that livin the live would lead one to believe that
I have it all figured out, I have "got it made in the shade" or I am enjoying the "high-life".Money is unlimited and life is "peaches and cream" is another assumption. you get to know me you will come to realize that none of these assumptions are factors which determine my happiness or success in "livin the life". stop by as you have the opportunity and see what I'm up to. Come sit a spell and take a look into my life and see if you can see what I call "livin the life"

Thanks for stopping by!
