It is an historical town with quaint antique shops in the old section.
Established in the 1770's, it is one of the oldest towns in Tennessee.
I thought I was in Heaven when I first arrived because everyone was so sweet and kind. Driving on the opposite side of the road was a little confusing at first, yet no-one lost their patience. They sat and waited, then with a friendly wave, saw me on my way....
It certainly was a learning process.
This was our home in the woods.
Amid the woodpeckers and squirrels.
It was enchanting to an Ozzie.
At the first sign of snow I ran around with the camera trying to capture all the white magic..
Living in the tropics of Queensland we don't see this in winter.
My church family.
It took a while to find somewhere I felt at home.
But I discovered CROSSROADS was the place to be.
( When you come to that place in your life, and you don't know which way to go. Take the road to the CHRIST )
Here I soon discovered, acceptance love and friendship with excellent teaching and wonderful singing and music.
About a year after I left, the precious church family came together for this photo.
They all got together to wave me hello....but a few are missing.
Prima and Zena, where are you??
On Roan Mountain.
It's not that far away and my hubby took me there to see it in the snow..
The staff of Amedisys Home Health.
A lovely group of girls and a pleasure to work with.
Lori our boss is seated on the bottom right with me standing on (R)behind her.
The best part of this work was everyone belonged to the Lord.
Much care and love is given out to the Patients.
Crystal and Nancy.
Everyone needs a good friend and mine was and still is, Nancy.
Both registered nurses we attended the same church, shared with each other and prayed together.
Nancy and her hubby John are special folk.
They give out of themselves and nothing is ever too much trouble.
It Is Written:
And he (JESUS) is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. (Colossians 1:18-20)
Praise His Holy Name. Amen.
