Cades Cove - "I am the Way and the Truth"


Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.  From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

Philip said, "Lord show us the Father and that will be enough for us."

Jesus answered:  "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time?  Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.  How can you say, 'Show us the Father?'  Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?  The words I say to you are not just my own.  Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.  Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.  I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.   You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

John 14:9-13 NIV

Appalachian Foothills





He who dwells in the shelter
of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of
the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, "He 
is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.
Psalm 91:1-2

If you make the Most High 
your dwelling--
even the LORD, who is my 
refuge--
then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his 
angels concerning you 
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike
your foot against a stone.
You will tread upon the lion 
and the cobra;
you will trample the great 
lion and the serpent.

"Because he loves me," 
says the LORD, 
"I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he
acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I
will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

Psalm 91:9-16 NIV

English Mountain

 

In the fall we did a scenic backroad drive to English Mountain located in the western foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.   The fall leaves were just beginning to show their magnificent colors.
