Simple + Southern Sunday No. 52

 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord’”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭9:23-24‬ ‭ “Perfect submission, perfect delight, Visions of rapture now burst on my sight; Angels, descending, bring from above, Echoes of mercy, whispers of love”
Fanny J. Crosby
“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭42:1‬ ‭ 
Autumn is trying really hard to make a showing at Cheaha State Park!  Northeast Alabama is in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  Our highest point is Mount Cheaha at 2407 feet! Breathtaking views on a beautiful autumn afternoon in the park! Pulpit rock is not for the those who are fearful of heights!
 Adorable Virginia and Minnie are out for an afternoon ride!
 It is fun chasing butterflies in order to get a picture!
  Chocolate Peanut Butter S’more – graham cracker crust, chocolate torte, peanut butter ganache, homemade marshmallows, and toasted marshmallow ice cream at a.lure in Savannah.  Since we have now completed 52 editions of Simple + Southern Sunday, we are looking back on a few photos from a year ago – this waterfall was taken in the mountains of North Carolina near Highlands. This old barn really resonates simple and Southern! Autumn in the North Carolina mountains! “I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD!'”

  1. Estimada Pam sus post me relajan en esta mañana de Domingo. Siempre leo con atención las citas bíblicas que son de gran enseñanza de vida, y me han gustado mucho las imágenes maravillosas otoñales de esas bellas tierras de América.
    Un cordial saludo

    Dear Pam their post relax me on this Sunday morning. I always read carefully the Scriptures that are great teaching of life, and I have really enjoyed the wonderful images of those beautiful autumn lands of America.
    Best regards


    • Dearest Dolores,
      It is so good to hear from you! Autumn is beautiful in our Appalachian foothills! Thank you so much for your sweet words! Scripture is always comforting and true! Hope all is well with you! Wishing you a wonderful week!

    Since our leaves don’t give us much color near our home, I really enjoy pictures from other parts of the country – or even better, to see it for real. Our country truly is beautiful! We can praise the Lord for it, too. Thank yo for sharing the pics, scripture, and hymn. I hope y’all have a wonderful Sunday, Pam!

    • Kim,
      Thank you so much for your gracious words! Do you live in Mississippi? I thought that I had read that! We always have lots of color in NE Alabama, usually the first couple of weeks in November! Wishing you a joy-filled week!

      • Kim says:

        Yes, I live in northeast Mississippi. We often have very high winds in spring and fall, so our leaves are blown off the trees either before or soon after any color changes. Right now, we’re having a drought, so our leaves are few and still green. I strolled around the property today…no fruit on the pecan trees at all, an oak tree is dead, things are struggling. We’ll need to travel this year to see color, but that’s OK. We love to do that. 🙂 Hope you have a fun week!
