A beautiful good morning from Abbeville, South Carolina! This morning we were greeted by a light mist that was so lovely, I had to get out the camera!
This month, we have been visiting a very good friend of ours, Dean Landmesser. Dean was the first person that Bob met at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, all those years ago----well, in 1974.
Dean, like several of our friends from those days and through the years, have become family.
Dean has a love of the outdoors and camping, and has warmly shared his home, his family and friends, and his heart with us . . . . . blessings all the way around!
These photos on this blog today are from Dean's place in Abbeville.
Many of you know my love of history and genealogy. . . . . well, this wonderful home is on Dean's land. I was immediately intrigued. It once belonged to a Doctor in the area. It has no electricity or water running to it. There is also a smaller home on the land that once belonged to the Fortisque family, who worked for the Doctor. We have not discovered the good Dr.'s name yet, but it has been fun to try to trace some information on the land and its prior owners. Maybe one day we can share these photos with descendants ...
The photos above and below show a few clips of the Dr.'s home.
The rays of sun coming through the mist in the trees was so beautiful . . . . .
Everywhere I turned there was another "beautiful shot . . . . ."
"Thus says God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out, He that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it, he that gives breath to the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein." Isaiah 42:5
Dean has LOTS of red cedar on his land.
It was so quiet and peaceful, one could almost hear the footsteps of the angels . . . . and feel the smile of the Lord!
So very grateful this morning for the beauty surrounding us . . . . . and for the love and companionship that we area blessed with through our family and dear friends!
What is it about a bit of a mist . . . . . . it seems to add an element of the mysterious and emotional . . . . . it touches the soul it seems.
These photos were all taken from the front "yard" area of Dean's land-----it is another adventure to walk down into the woods behind the house. There is a spring . . . . .and a pond . . . .
"The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it, . . . ."
And here is our trailer nestled behind this stand of red cedars. . . . .the wooden building is the well-house. Behind us, is Dean's house.
Blessings, hugs and love to each of you!
Till next time-------- Bob and Debbie
