Left Nashville again today. Miss you already, Tennessee! (Don’t take videos while you drive, kids.)
Sacred Heart of Jesus, all for Thee!
I attended a deaconate ordination Mass this morning! All five of the men are now temporary deacons and will be ordained priests for the Diocese of Nashville in July 2014.
You know what… I just realized… As of today, I have witnessed all seven of the Sacraments! Hah! Winning! :)
Reelfoot Lake. It’s actually more of a swamp/bayou and was formed after an earthquake in 1812.
The rest of TN’s big lakes are manmade. For example, I live really close to Old Hickory Lake, which exists because of a dam on the Cumberland River.
Now I understand why my TN friends can’t even fathom MN’s 11,000+ lakes. Hah.
In my (current) hometown outside Nashville, Tennessee, there are several “slave walls.” They are these short little stone mounts pictured above. Slaves build them in order to designate property lines between the plantations.
