Because He Lives


"Because He Lives" by Bill Gaither.

God sent his son
They called him Jesus
He came to love
Heal and forgive
He lived and died
To buy my pardon
An empty grave
Is there to prove
My Savior lives.

Because he lives
I can face tomorrow
Because he lives
All fear is gone
Because I know
He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because he lives.

Time to Plant

The weekend was perfect weather for planting the warm-season garden 
in Central Alabama.  However, there is a threat of frost by mid-week! 
Uh OH!

Confederate Headquarters

It won't be long before hundreds of students experience life in the 1860s

Here, a wooden fence separates Confederate Headquarters from the battlefield,
 and there is plenty of firewood for cooking. The headquarters is among
 several stops where children will learn  about medicine, communication,
 clothing, weapons, period music and more.

M is for Magnolia

Although it's known as Old Live Oak Cemetery, this historic resting place 
is home to many magnolias too. The enormous trees provide much
 of the shade along the lanes.

Signs, Signs, Take a Break

Selma artist Clayton Cogle's "Take a Break"  painting takes us back to the early 1900s
 when Coca-Cola Bottling was located in a building near Water Avenue
 and Lauderdale Street. The mural on the side of the building was refurbished,
 and you can view it HERE

Cogle's colorful painting is on display
at the Alabama Artists: Roots and Wings Art Exhibition
 and Sale at Carneal ArtsRevive. The show ends Saturday.

Evening at the Bridge

With Daylight Savings Time, darkness comes slowly to the Alabama River
 and the Edmund Pettus Bridge. It is after 6 p.m., and the sky is still blue!

Elvis at the Rock n Roll Diner

Imagine my surprise when I learned that Elvis was appearing live
 at the Rock n Roll Diner! Well, that is what the sign says,
 and sure enough, Elvis himself showed up at Henry Brick Company's booth
 at the Alabama River Chili Cookoff.

 His appearance was enough to get me "All Shook Up,"
 and I FORGOT to take his picture!
