A fantastic weekend

Memorial day for me involved work and in a few minutes, mowing the grass.  I’m sure many other people will be having much more entertaining days than me but I did however just finish with a fantastic week with some great people.
Everything started with seeing Neon Trees Saturday in Knoxville Tn with the girl that I love.  They put on a great show and I believe we both had a fantastic time!  Afterwards we took the (way too long) drive to Florida to spend the week with my family.  We both had a blast there as well, spending hours in the ocean, swimming in the pool, driving with the top down, playing with my nieces and eating way too much seafood.  I guess I should correct that and say we ate a lot of seafood.  One can never have too much fresh seafood 🙂
For the last two days of the week we spent time with her family camping.  It was nice to get away from everyone and just take it easy.  We went fishing, riding four wheelers, played cornhole, badmitton, ate smores around a campfire and shot some guns.  The only sad thing about it was that I had to cut it short and leave really early on Monday morning to get back in time for work.
Overall I had one of the best weeks I’ve had in a long long time.  Even though I had a blast seeing my family and visiting hers it was the simple fact that I got to spend time with my girlfriend that made it such a special trip.  I feel truly blessed and hope everyone that reads this had a great Memorial Day Weekend!

So we got that big snow that was predicted.  A little later than everyone thought but we did receive it.  Even though the road conditions were bad I ventured out to the beautiful Guest River Gorge in Coeburn Va.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

I have decided to begin a new project for my blog and my life.  In addition to attending services at my local church (Norton Presbyterian Church) I will visit churches across our great nation.  I will start out visiting other churches in my immediate area then as time allows, visit those further away.

What I hope to achieve by doing this.

  •  To fellowship, unite and connect with believers from diverse backgrounds, denominations, social standings and ways of life.
  •  To encourage others and receive encouragement so that our faith may grow.

The apostles traveled to teach and provide guidance during the infancy of our religion.  I would emulate that same attitude but for the purposes identified above.

It is always a wonderful experience to meet new and exciting people.

I would love to visit your church and eagerly await an invitation.  🙂
