I just wanted to share a couple of pictures with you – they are not called the “Smoky” Mountains for nothing! Leaving for church early Sunday morning, I was captivated by the mists rising in my little valley. Even as I sat in the car, the mists were shifting and lifting – it was beautiful.
Do you see the chimney smoke rising on the other side of the valley?
It looked as if a painter had lightly stroked the scene with a brushed dipped in white. What a beautiful start to the day!
(No, you’re not seeing a UFO in the last photo. The grayish teardrop shape is not an alien craft hurtling over the range .. it is actually a drop of pine tar on my windshield. I parked under the trees at my parents’ house on a hot summer day – and this was my reward. It won’t come off for anything. Well, except maybe a bottle of pine tar remover. Which I should use on my hood, really. And thank you for not mentioning the leaves on the lawn which should have been mulched already.)
Have a wonderful week – it’s finally Christmas week! I hope we don’t get so busy that we fail to take time out to be thankful for the blessings we enjoy every day and for those to come.
Be blessed, my friends.
