Simple + Southern Sunday No. 31

 “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others”
‭Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭3-4‬sss24 We hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend!  This past week found Butch in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Florida!  I joined him in Sandestin, but first enjoyed a couple of small towns (read here)!  Here is just a little glimpse into our week.  You can always find something interesting as you travel across our beautiful country! “Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored”
-Daniel Webster Sandestin walkway to the bay!White sand…yellow umbrellas…turquoise water…blue skies! Romantic dinner with a gorgeous view! Pistachio crusted grouper with risotto, asparagus, and sweet

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