Coloring Fun: Redeemer


Stitching the firefly design helped Harriet realize that fireflies didn’t just exist in her memory.

“And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.

Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.

And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.”
Mark 16:8-11 KJV

Along a Country River: Thursday Doors

Old Railroad Bridge is the oldest river bridge in Alabama.

The original toll bridge, spanning the Tennessee River in the Shoals, opened in 1840, and by 1858 operated as a double decker; trains using the upper deck while the lower deck continued as a toll bridge. Rebuilt again after the American Civil War, it operated until 1939; replaced by the O’Neal Bridge (shown left in photo).

The 1560-foot lower deck was restored by the Old Railroad Bridge Company as a walking trail using the original piers. The bridge is part of the Tennessee Valley Authority Muscle Shoals Trails Complex.

God will be with me.

“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Deep and Wide: Thursday Doors

Memories of a journey to Grand Canyon National Park include:

  • Watching a sunrise at Mather Point.
  • Discovering a “water bottle filling station” near Verkamp’s Visitor Center that provided water from Roaring Springs, the park’s approved water supply. These water stations are located throughout the park.
  • Viewing sections of Bright Angel Trail, Indian Gardens and Phantom Ranch from the South Rim Trail.
  • Driving “through the clouds” on adventure afield to Vermilion Cliffs National Monument and Horseshoe Bend (Glen Canyon National Recreational Area). We experienced fog, rain, sleet, wind, sunshine and rainbows as we drove through the cliffs and canyons of northern Arizona.
  • Climbing a small mesa at Horseshoe Bend for a unique viewpoint of Glen Canyon and the Colorado River.
  • Viewing various artist renderings of the Grand Canyon in Kolb Studio and Lookout Studio.
  • Exploring Hopi House and its Native American architecture.
  • Watching (carefully, from a distance) Grand Canyon elk families munch grasses and shrubs along the South Rim Trail.
  • Discovering the Historic Village Livery where the Grand Canyon pack mules await their next trail ride.
