Roaring Creek Falls of Burnsville NC

Hey ya'll. It's me again. Wanted to share with you about our third field trip with the homeschool group this year.  We went hiking to a beautiful waterfall.  The name of the fall is Roaring Creek, and was it ever roaring.

So worth the hike and trip.  Here are some pictures.

I am just thankful that I rely on God to get me through when I am having issues. My husband and I both had to start a new regiment this summer to control different health issues that we have. But we made it through the month of June, with help from above.  But here comes the next month.

July,,,UGGGGG. What else can I say? It was the most awful, horrible, terrible, worst month that we could have had.  The fourth of July went great. No problems, until that fatal call that came on the seventh.  A phone call that we all wish we didn't receive.  One of my husband's brother had passed away. 49 yrs old. Still young and life ahead, but he was gone. We saw God work in a …
