Simple + Southern Sunday No. 28

“I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable”
Psalm‬ ‭145‬:‭1-3sss24
“Oh the Lord, our strength and song, highest praise to Him belongs!

Christ the Lord, the Conquering King, Your Name we raise, Your triumphs sing!  Praise the Lord, our Mighty Warrior,  Praise the Lord, the Glorious One!
By His hand we stand in victory, by His Name we overcome!”
-Aaron Keyes, Song of Moses

The cross atop this steeple almost appears as if it’s  miles up in the heavenly blue sky!

Seems like no two sunsets are alike-each with its own unique beauty!

The power of water…. rushing Black Creek below Noccalula Falls.

Crimson clover…over and over

These beach bums seem to have their day under control!

Not sure what model – maybe 50ish – but definitely hard to miss! The Eleventh Street School was built in 1907 and was renovated by the Gadsden City Board of Education to serve as its administrative offices.  It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Saturday night dinner at home with grilled steak and polenta!

Covered bridges are neat but I’ve wondered why were they covered?

Could these plants  be growing organically?
Everywhere we go the Knock-out roses are starting to put on their show!

The perfect way to relax and enjoy First Friday– and the weather was awesome! This old mill is located very near the farm where Butch’s grandparents raised cotton many years ago!

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

    My daddy used to have a truck very similar to this purple one. It was a Blue and white ’57 Chevy.
    I’ve read that covered bridges were covered to protect the bridge from the elements….they did last longer that way.

    • Good morning Emily! Thank you for your comments! I have been driving by the purple truck for weeks and there was no way to miss its color! Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! Blessings, Pam

    Bridges were covered to keep ice, sleet, and snow off them.

    Also, for safety when ppl traveled by horse drawn carriages/wagons. Some horses would spook because they could see the drop to the water below. When the bridge was covered, it would seem like they were entering a barn, something the horses were comfortable doing.

    Your Sunday posts are always full of God’s beauty, my friend. You are right, each sunset is unique and lovely…no two are the same 🙂

    Have a blessed week! Hugs!

    Stunning as always! Love the Crimson Clover, the covered bridge, and the old mill! Of course the beach bums steal hearts! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

We love your comments!
