Simple + Southern Sunday No. 17

“For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods”
Psalm‬ ‭95‬:‭3‬

We have been reflecting on the greatness of God this past week!  Those are thoughts that we can never exhaust.  Do you ever just pause and think about how much the Creator of the universe loves you…that He has proven His love over and over again?

This church located in Clarksville, TN is on the National Register of Historic Places and was completed in 1877. I love the red doors!

“The splendor of a king, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice…”

Our nephew, Joel made this map of the world for his office.  It is amazing what can be done with a pallet!  Total cost=$0

May I just say, I never turn down a dessert!  Chocolate Pave…sponge cake with chocolate caramel buttercream and blood orange sorbetto at Frank Stitt’s Bottega Restaurant!

Gorgeous sunset over the lake this week!

“…He wraps Himself in light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice, trembles at His voice…”

Elsie’s love bird Valentine box that she made (with a little help from mom, Tara)…just darling-both Elsie and the box!

In honor of Valentine’s, strawberry and funfetti macarons!

Old Glory waving proudly at our historic Federal Building!

“…How great is our God – sing with me
How great is our God – and all will see
How great, how great is our God…”

So simple…red roses and candles on our dining room table!

A bronze replica of the Statue of Liberty (on the outskirts of Birmingham) standing 36 feet and weighing 10 tons that was cast in France!

Santa’s unfortunate demise!!

Most of the world would love to have access to clean water! So very thankful that we don’t depend on wells, but think about those who aren’t as fortunate.  May we appreciate the undeserved blessing of turning on our faucet!

“…name above all names, worthy of all praise
my heart will sing, how great is our God!”
-Chris Tomlin

“I was glad when they said to me,
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’”
Psalm 122:1
