It is something that at times is hard for me to grasp but yet I know it is true; the meek shall inherit the earth, the humble shall be exalted, blessed are the poor in spirit, more blessed to give than receive, last shall be first... This hard to grasp but wonderful principle in God’s Kingdom that it is the humble, not the rich and powerful that are the ones who are better off. Sometimes we desire wealth, power, fame and all the accolades that accompany being one of the prominent powerful folks who seem to rule the planet but the word of God show us that it is better to be counted as one of the humble folks. We want to have our own way at times, but in God’s Kingdom it is better to yield if it is not yielding to evil. God is sovereign and He will take care of His own,

God give us the grace to trust that you will indeed take care of your children. May we realize that we do not need to worry so much about ourselves and getting our fair share, but trust You to give us what we truly need.

Beautiful Saturday Drive up Noontootla, Springer Mountain

Another Saturday has come and gone, my weekend is almost expired. However, day was not a total wash, I watched two back to back episodes of Criminal Minds with my daughter first thing this morning upon her insistence, mowed grass with my boys and took a ride through the North Georgia mountains.

I went up through Aska Road to Noontootla and followed the road up the mountain to the trail that goes to Springer Mountain. We made it to the top of the mountain at around 7:00 pm and rode till we came out on the Doublehead Gap Rd. It was a beautiful ride up by Noontootla creek and on top of the mountain as well. Up on top of the mountain as you looked over the western slope, the descending sun hitting the green leaves made them shine. As you got a little further down the mountain the many of the trunks of the trees on the side of the mountain had a dark almost black color. It was a cool effect, I named it the dark forest. All in all it was a good trip.

The older I get the more I appreciate the beauty of God's creation, even simple things like the trees of a forest. Praise God for another day of life, for family and friends, the beauty of His creation, and for eternal life through His son, Jesus.

Cracker Barrel's Woodhouse to leave board |

Cracker Barrel's Woodhouse to leave board |

Being a long time employee at Cracker Barrel, I wonder what kind of changes are in store for Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. I hope that the successful store model began by the late Dan Evans is not tossed aside. My fear is that Cracker Barrel could possibly deciminate to just another resteraunt chain.
