Cram Session

It has been 23 days since the big move.  Three have consisted of the ten hour drive from Union to Marbury, five have been spent back in U-Town for the Thanksgiving holiday, five were spent on a mini vacation to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg Tennessee, and finally a total of ten unconsecutive days have been spent in my new town of Marbury.  PHEW, just saying that exhausts me. I will try to give you the quickest recap including some of my favorites so far.
The drive down was long and uneventful. My least favorite part was losing in a game of twenty questions. Who would have thought he would have picked the item I was holding in my hand the entire game. We only played ONE round. I am a sore loser.  My favorite part was the quality time with Brandon. I am not living at Brandon’s house but staying next door with his Grandmother Hazel and Grandfather Joe (which I most likely from here on out will refer to as Mema and Papa).  There will surely be some great posts that result of this living arrangement.

On to Tennessee.. Brandon’s aunt offered us their four night time share in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  It took about five minutes for us to decided if we should pack up for a five hour drive to the mountains. Great decision considering we could never do this from the months of March until September . It rained the first day so we hit the shopping outlet and Brandon cooked me dinner. Check out the gourmet meal. He is definitely a keeper. =)

Day two was spent driving to Brandon’s old stomping grounds of Tusculum College and visiting the McCrarys in Greenville. We visited, they took us to diner and we watched hunting videos from back in the day. If you want to meet a couple that will rock your world, here you go. God has given them an awesome mission and they continue to live each day to serve others.

Cades Cove is a national park in the Smokies that Brandon has visited many of times. It is an 11 mile loop that you drive/walk/bike and observe the beautiful scenery and wildlife. Nine hours later we had spotted 40+ turkey, 60+ deer, and two black bear. It was an AWESOME day! Check out some

I’m sorry that wasn’t as short as you would have hoped but you can see I have been busy.  I haven’t even been able to tell you about all the other welcomes from some of Brandon’s friends and church family but I know that they will also provide me many posts in the future. I’m still looking for employment but know that God is making sure that my foundation here is strong and that I am settled before he gives me something I am not ready for. I know it will happen when it is right. For now I am enjoying spending time with Brandon, working on myself as a Christian, learning to have an open mind, and trusting God. It is amazing to say the least. 


Psalm 27:14
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
