Murdo Girl…the road trip..Sunday is a fun day in Hendersonville

Kip and I were beginning to feel like heathens. It had been a while since we had been to church, so we looked forward to going with James and Janet to their church this morning.

It turned out to be a joyful service. I found myself feeling better and more inspired when I left then when I got there, which is always good.

The music was great, and the sermon was really thought provoking. In fact, I have been thinking about it all day. 

The preacher talked about not being able to keep plants alive, which is something I can relate to. She said every day there would always be dead leaves on the floor that had to be scooped up and thrown away. In order to live, a leaf has to stay attached to the vine. In order to keep faith alive, you have to stay close to the one that gives it life.

When I thought about this, it made sense. In order to keep a dream, goal, love, or anything that’s important to me alive and growing, I have to stay close to whatever gives it life.

A friend recently told me about a book she read called, “Don’t give up your Daydream.” She referred to it several times in our conversations and it sounds like it has a theme similar to that of the sermon. Don’t neglect to nurture what you love.

The things I enjoy and feel most productive doing, I’ve only identified in the past few years.

You may not have wanted a sermon from me today, but you should know by now, good or bad, I always write my thoughts.

This whole day was better than great. We went out for breakfast after church and I gave everybody the day off from taking pictures of their food. 

We went to an apple orchard where I bought fried apple pies, apple donuts, sweet potatoes and a delicious apple slush.

Kip looks just like he’s really driving the truck and Janet and I are his punkin passengers.

There’s James. I just stayed there until they were all done taking pictures…too hard to get up!

“Look James, there’s a witch!”

It was a gorgeous day. There was a maze for the kids to try and navigate in the cornfield to the right.

That there is some big cabbage

We had a blast with these two.

Next, we went to a street festival.

James caught me trying to take a picture of his food😜

This post sure went downhill fast!

Men are so competitive!! Laura Avant wants to know which one of these ladies is the witch.

A pretty fall tree on a beautiful fall day…Now there is only one thing left to do…eat pizza!!

    Magnificent pictures coupled with wonderful prose makes for enjoyable reading MG. Keep it up. It is okay with me if you and Kip just travel around full time.

      I wish we could 07. I really wish we could. We’ll most likely be home in 4 or 5 days.

    You’re a kick! Looks like this post wasn’t going downhill for Kip and James.
    Thanks for the recap of that sermon. I need to keep the lesson there close at hand: Don’t neglect to nurture what you love.
