Thursday brought rain. Off and on, a light drizzle tapped against the windows, the kind of autumn day that seeps into my bones and finds me reaching for coffee and a sweater.
Around noon, we broke camp at the KOA in Pigeon Forge and waved goodbye, not because we wanted to, but out of necessity. Let me explain.
Initially, we didn’t reserve a space at the KOA (our bad), and have just lucked out to be able to stay this long. Today, was the final day they could accommodate us.
But (cue the Hallelujah Chorus) look what we found right around the corner! We are surrounded by God's unmatched handiwork. Lord willing, we will be in this amazing spot until Monday.
While The Man got Cloud Nine connected to water, sewage, and electricity, I saw this path leading up a hill, so I grabbed my walking shoes and took a walk in the woods.
At the end of the path, an ordinary storage building awaited, but …
… the joy was in the journey.
Isn’t it always?
Even though there is still a lot of green, glorious autumn announces her presence a little more every day. My photography was done from inside the vehicle, as the road is narrow and doesn't offer many stopping points, but the colors came through in a spectacular sort of way, don't you think?
As we drove back to camp, the rain clouds settled in and took my breath away.
Still, the best thing we saw, by far, was when we came upon a church that had this sign out front. Painted on a big rock, a message: “All things are possible … Jesus.”
I immediately sent the pic to a precious loved one to remind her that nothing is too hard for the Lord, and I’m posting it here to remind all of us.
Until next time, dear friends, embrace the season, embrace His message. All things are possible.
