Ames Plantation Festival

I love going to the outside festivals in the fall. This festival is one of my favorites. Takes place on an old planation that dates back to the Civil War days in LaGrange Tn. I grew up going to family reunions at one of the old houses here. My husband and I ride in field trials on horseback there in the winter months. 
Beautiful place. 
 Once a year they hold a festival with demonstrations of how life was in years past. 
 Loved these skilled hands working on her quilt...
 The South keeps trying to rise again...
 Logging horses
Everyone loves new shoes including the horses. 
Had a great day.

How my Heart Yearns within me

In Job 19:23 he wrote.."Oh that my words were recorded"...(they didn't have blogs back then!)

Job didn't realize that what he was going through would be a verse we would refer back to when we are struggling with problems. Do we realize that truth today? Do we remember that others are watching and learning from us as we go through our struggles. Job's trials and broken heart stirred him to write some of the most beautiful verses in the Bible and my own "life verses."

"I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth. And after my flesh has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see Him with my own eyes, I and not another. How my heart yearns within me!" 
Job 19:25-27
