Simple + Southern Sunday No. 27

“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” Psalm‬ ‭139‬:‭23-24‬sss24 “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled, and pardoned from his sin”
-Frederick M. Lehman

Quickly it was sold to William Fox (movie mogul).  The 3,622-pipe Moller organ was the crowning addition when the theatre opened its doors on Christmas Day in 1929.  Butch and I have attended several plays and concerts in the splendid movie palace.  However, the most memorable concert was taking my Daddy to hear Johnny Mathis with a full orchestra performing a Christmas show in the storied Fox!!IMG_8444 New York City’s got nothing on our little downtown hotdog stand! barnMiniature log cabin completely handmade by my late uncle!flowerWe love sharing our week in pictures with you on Sundays!

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

    • Sharon, thank you for identifying! My husband is usually great with identifying all of our birds and he said he should have known that, but we are glad you clarified! Thank you for reading! Have a fabulous week! Blessings, Pam

    loving your pictures. Would love to see the church and the plantation in person. We went to see Josh Groban before he was so famous at the Fox! Amazing place and amazing performer. Thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday!

    • Helen, thank you so much for your sweet comments. I drive by the old plantation often and never even think about how old it is and the history. It is still occupied! I love Josh Groban’s voice! Hope you have a beautiful week! Blessings, Pam
