***************************************************
That's what the trip to Tennessee was all about....a revival! I’ve been in a slump lately in my spiritual life and knew my Aunt Nadia would be there for me. She has been a Christian for over 31 years and has always encouraged me. Normally the encouragement is via phone, but Karen and I decided we needed more than a phone call. We needed Aunt Nadia, in the flesh, with all her hugs and kisses. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me spending time with Aunt Nadia, learning things about her life we didn’t know. She is an amazing woman! I took over 300 pictures! The Saturday night we were there, we had a little photo shoot. We were in our PJ’s and took tons of pictures…just being silly. I will cherish those pictures and I’m sure smile whenever I look back on them. I am making a photo book of our revival weekend for Aunt Nadia, Karen and myself. I didn’t ask my Aunt about posting her picture on line, so I’m only posting this one of all three of us along with pictures from our journey to Tennessee and our revival.


Karen and I had to get a picture of the backseat of the car. Can you tell me what is missing???

KIDS!


Fill her up and let's hit the road!


Most of the trip was through mountains. It was beautiful!





We jammed to the good ole' 80's. I even rapped a little. I recorded myself. Once I figure out how to download it, I will show you all my rapping skills!


Death Tunnel...do you see how close that semi was! One bad move, and you are done!





The light at the end of the tunnel.


Snacks for the road. Karen and I love combos!


Tennessee!

Me, Aunt Nadia and Karen
