so we begin to question:
I don't understand Your ways...will You show me?
nothing...I don't hear anything...are you going to answer?
then You answer in a way only You can...through Your precious word...
wait on the Lord;
be of good courage
and He shall strengthen your heart...
as for God, His way is perfect;
the way of the Lord is proven
thank you, Jesus... 'as for God...His way is PERFECT'.

a group of us made the 24 mile car trip to cade's cove (an old community of farmers and their families who lived and survived in the smokey mountains). we drove and hiked from homestead to homestead to see the various houses that were still standing from the 1700 and 1800's.
thankfully there were no accidents or incidents...just pure pleasure...it was beautiful!

We went to C of O and took some formal pictures...well, as formal as our family is... it was fun...
okay...confession time... so at the time it wasn't a whole lot of fun because I was having problems with my camera,
...But after many tears, torment, and two hours of trying times, things turned out okay for the most part.
(was that an exaggeration...you bet, but for the sake of my 'triple t' phrase it had to be done)
I can no longer say "here are 'the nephews'", since there is a niece in the group now... they did a great job staying happy most of the time...they were real troopers.
