Deo Gratias: Foresty Getaway

In just a few hours David and I will be driving to Tennessee. We're visiting my aunt and uncle over the long weekend - they live on the other side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As much as I loathe unnecessary fuel consumption, I have been looking forward to this trip. I've never seen the house my aunt and uncle built. Because it is "set apart" on a large piece of land (hopefully with lots of trees) it nearly promises the peace and relaxation I so desire. And David and I have a history of really enjoying our time together on long car rides. He's loaded up the iPod and I've cut up some watermelon for the cooler.

May you and your loved ones rejoice in your freedom today! How precious, too, is the freedom of spirit we Christians experience when we turn to the Lord and place ourselves under His mercy again and again. Deo Gratias!
