John and I had the blessing of visiting my best friend and her family a few weeks ago in Savannah, Georgia. It was our first time to this beautiful state. We saw some of the after effects of hurricane Matthew from just days before including trees down, flooding, empty shelves in the grocery stores and businesses closed.
As you can see, we had beautiful weather with blue skies and sunshine for our visit. Hard to believe just a few days before was pouring rain and gusty winds.
The hanging moss in the trees was something I haven’t seen before. It’s a dramatic look in areas of tree lined streets. And the River Street area is just what I pictured for Savannah. The buildings, brick street, trolley, cute shops and happy people.
Our friends were fantastic hosts, at their home and taking us to see some sites. We went to St. Simons Island, the beach, River Street, ate some good food (and too much) and of course, shopping. The sand at the beach was packed hard from the hurricane. The ripple look above was neat to see. And how did this beautiful orange butterfly survive the wind and rain just a few days ago?
We enjoyed a Christian concert on Saturday. Ryan Stevenson, The Afters and Newsboys. Ryan sings Eye of the Storm, a beautiful, encouraging song of Hope. One of my favorites right now. I hear this song and know that everything is ok regardless of circumstances surrounded me. God is on the Throne.
Linda and have been buddies forever. Our Dads were best friends too. We were in each other’s weddings and there for each other through some tough times. We had some years of no contact, but so very thankful we connected again several years ago. She gets me. I get her. I help her with computer stuff and she, as a nurse, helps me understand my ailments. I love ya’ girl! <3
Georgia’s people are friendly and southern hospitality is real and true. We had a great week and hope to visit again.
