After the morning service we ate lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. It was so much fun. The waiters went around asking trivia questions about Forest Gump and sometimes your answers got weird replies from the. One of the questions was where did Bubba Gump get shot? My answer was, "In the but-tocks." The waiter informed me that this was a family establishment and Forest was shot in Vietnam!
After lunch we walked Gatlinburg streets for four hours. We had to be back at the Convention Center before the doors opened at 6:30 to get in line to get good seats. Libby, Frank, and I went window shopping as far as the Mountain Mall....where I gave out. Libby posed pretty in front of the frozen water fountain. Does she not look like a pretty snow bunny.
Between the Mountain Mall and Hard Rock Cafe I saw this window box of pansies and just had to show you the snow covering those poor pansies.
This was us heading in for the night service for Tuesday night. The kids were really pumped because Skillet was the band for tonight. They could not stop talking about this group. Tuesday nights music was a little bothersome for me. We must have been sitting right in front of the bass amp....because it made my heart feel like it was jumping beats and eventually I had to go outside the room and let me heart settle down a bit. Skillet was still loud even out there through closed doors.
Day Three and we are now the proud parents of a little Indian girl. The Youth Group decided that we wanted to pay 30.00 a month to support this child until they can get her placed in a Forever Home (adopted). It was really sweet to watch them pour over the countless children until they found just the right one. I loved them for this moment!
Headed back to Alabama. The snow was still there and it was still extremely cold. I was looking forward to heading south and into warmer temperatures. I never knew 35 could feel so good....but when we survived 9 degrees on Tuesday....35 was a heat wave.
