It was 34 this morning when I came downstairs. I felt great when I got up, probably after sleeping so much yesterday. It was a slow morning for us. I did some pre-preparation for our move tomorrow, washed a load of laundry and when it was done, we went to H.E.B. for a few groceries. When we returned I packed us a lunch, expecting to leave here around 10-10:30, taking our lunch with us, when we leave to visit a park in Kerrville that has a number of hiking trails.
|Finally remembered to get a picture of the "Welcome to Ingram" sign, where our park is located.|
|Brett sent a picture of this sweet little guy this morning - he's growing so fast, and really filling out.|
We have not talked to Matt and Megan for awhile. Dean sent Matt a text to see if they would be available sometime today, and it looks like we'll talk to them later, around 6pm.
After we returned I needed to dry the clothes, and as sometimes happen, we had to wait longer than expected for the clothes to dry so I could hang them up before we left. Since it was past 11:30 we ended up eating our lunch here in Bentley. Plans sometimes change!
We wanted to walk the hiking trails, but we also wanted to visit "The Coming King" Sculpture Garden. We decided to pass on the park/hiking trails and went to Kerrville to visit the Sculpture Garden. Both involved walking, so we would get exercise, but since we are leaving tomorrow morning, this would be our only opportunity to see it before we left.
We finally arrived, after a little mix-up with our GPS, shortly after 1. After locating a parking spot, we walked up the path leading to the 300' cross-shaped garden. It is constructed at the top of a 1930' hill overlooking I-10 at the entrance to Kerrville. Throughout the display were a number of beautiful sculptures, Bible verses and prayer gardens. Rocks have been provided for people to write their prayers on and left in designated areas throughout the garden. While they still have work to do in and around the area it is already a great testament to God and his Word.
Here are a few pictures I took while we were here, most are of the sculptures.
|Fisher of Men|
|The Open Cross|
|This is one of the prayer gardens. Small rocks like these are available to anyone who wants to write out and leave their prayer.|
|The Coming King|
|Jesus with Mother and her Baby|
|Mary, Mother of Jesus|
|It Is Finished Sculpture|
|Welcome to Kerrville Sign, just below the Garden.|
|Dean stopped to get gas - when I saw this sign, I immediately thought of my sister Cindy. Whenever someone would ask, where did you get that - she always said "At the Get'n Place" - Her Get'n Place was Walmart.|

Even though the temperatures dropped and the sunlight chose to stay hidden, we still had a wonderful day.
