Sunset on the Blue Ridge Parkway

During our Thanksgiving trip to the Asheville, North Carolina area,   after visiting the Mount Mitchell area,  we were driving back to our motel in Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway....  It was perfect timing since we saw some gorgeous skies --and a beautiful sunset.  Here are some pictures --which need no explanation.

Isn't God's creation just magnificent?  While I was watching that sunset,   I almost felt as if God was truly talking just to us.   We've seen many sunsets before,  but this one was definitely one of the best.  It was AWESOME. The only thing which would have made it better is IF you had have been there with us!!!!!


I will end this post showing our Nativity Scene which is sitting on our coffee table.  I am reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. And I also am reminded,  even with all of the joy, the parties, and the fun during this wonderful season, that there are people out there who are hurting in one way or another.

A very good friend whose husband is really struggling with various health problems needs extra prayers right now from all of us.  May God Bless ALL who are sick, or in pain --both physically or emotionally.

Have a blessed weekend.  I will see you on Monday.
