A Getaway

This past weekend while the kids were visiting their dad, I was able to get away with a friend. We stayed at a cabin at Lake Lure and went to Chimney Rock. Aside from the torrential downpour while driving up the mountain in total darkness Friday night, the weather was gorgeous.

I also have good news to report. Abby told me that she saw Julia at school yesterday. Thanks to all who prayed!

Glad you were able to get away to enjoy the splendor of God's creation! Hope it rejuvinated you a bit.

And wonderful news on Julia!

What a treat for US that you brought your camera. Lake Lure is right...everything about your get-a-way was very alluring.

Wow, that rock wall, fall leaves and water dripping down photo just sucked me in. I wanted to be there too. Looks like you scored.

Good news about Julia too. Praise God.

What good news about Julia. Just reading about her being at school brought tears to my eyes. I'll bet her parents are still on their knees!
Your pictures were beutiful. Don't you love looking out and seeing deer?

That view would have been worth the hike! Glad you were able to get away.
