THE MIRACLE.....A spectacular musical presentation...

Recently, I met up with my daughter Michelle, son-in-law Jay and my grandchildren in Sevierville, TN.
They were up from Florida for Jay's family reunion and I came from Portland to meet them for a day.
From there we went to the attraction: The Miracle.
It was really great musical with dancing, singing...Jesus, angels, and many of the Biblical figures were there depicting the story of creation - the fall of Lucifer - the battle of righteousness vs evil.
It was well written and GREAT for the entire family!!! The stage props and scenes were breath-takingly beautiful! If you're ever in Sevierville, TN - it is a MUST SEE show! Well worth it! After the play - we were all greeted with the cast of characters. My granddaughter - wanted to stand in line to shake all their hands - but most importantly meet Jesus!
It was really GREAT!


Magic Beyond Belief - was another sensational show. I'm still trying to figure out how he did all the stuff he did!
Completely amazing for sure!!! If you're ever in Sevierville, TN - this is definately a MUST SEE show! He is an amazing magician!

Trip across East Tennessee to South Carolina....

I don't think there is any greater way to see the land we live in - than to take a road trip. I recently had the priviledge of driving toward Sevierville, TN to meet up and see my grandchildren, daughter and son-in-law. They were visiting from Florida to attend the Richardson Family was the first time all the Richardsons were in the same place at the same time!
I wanted to take the opportunity to get my pregnant daughter some maternity clothes that I had been collecting since I learned of her new pregnancy. She has given all her maternity clothes away thinking that she wasn't going to have any more children. Ha ha! Surprise!!!
I stayed with them for the day and night and left the next day to see my son Josh, who now lives in Kingsport, TN. I didn't realize how spectacularly beautiful it is there!!! After having lunch and visiting Josh for a while, I took off and drove down to South Carolina to see my son Matt and his wife Jessie - and also meet up with Steve who had been there for a few days already - working on a job there.
The next day I took off for home. All in all - it was a beautiful drive! However, it was a tad hairy at times due to having so many thunderstorms along the route I took. Whew! besides the rain though - it was so beautiful! I love the mountains of East Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains....they are breathtaking. Here are some pictures of my travels.
