"Do not be anxious about anything but in everything through prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

Here and There and Everywhere

We are packing our bags and heading north - north as in north Georgia. Yep, we're going to take a few days to visit family and do some sightseeing. We will visit my Daddy in Macon and then head north to ramble around for a couple of days. Right now the destination is unknown. Charlie and I like to do that. It can make life interesting however when you don't stop early enough to find a place to sleep for that night. That is a story for another day.

Macon will be having there "Christmas in the South" Arts and Crafts show on Saturday. I don't do Arts and Crafts shows every year but I do like to check in along and along to see their work. We will check it out and spend the night with Daddy. He is 87 years young and I am so very proud of him. I lost my Mom to colon cancer in 2006 and he has been a trouper. I so admire his positive outlook and how he has handled this change in his life.

We plan to go to Athens and reminisce a little. Charlie and I met at UGA - Go DAWGS! It has precious memories for us. From that point I am not sure where you will find us. How exciting! We will see if there are any leaves left on the trees or maybe we will ramble in the woods and look for rocks and pine cones. (By the way, I collect rocks and pine cones). Another story for another day.

I do know we will be in Griffin Monday evening. We will spend time with Kelly, Greg and Anna. Gran (that's me ) and Grandad (that's Charlie) have the honor and privilege of playing with our three year old granddaughter, Anna. Now how much fun is that going to be! Looking forward to some great family time there.

Heading back south on Wednesday. I know there will be lots to share when I return.

Until then -- God bless you!
