Our Trip to Summertown/Ethridge/Lawrenceburg, TN

We take an annual trip to TN Amish country. We usually go in September or October. However, this year we wanted to attend the James D. Vaughn Quartet convention. The groups we wanted to see were there on Friday and Saturday night, so we planned our trip for July 26-28.

We did something we’ve never done before. We rented a bed and breakfast through Air B&B. We weren’t sure how that would work out, but you never learn if you don’t try. So we booked the B&B a month or two in advance to be sure we got our dates.

The B&B we chose is a permaculture house built in the side of a hill. It’s a studio that doubles as a B&B. We knew it was in the country and in a gated community, but that’s really all we knew.

Come to find out, it’s on The Farm in Summertown, TN. This is a community of people who are like minded and have formed their own settlement. They are very natural health minded. The believe in taking care of the earth and animals. They are nonviolent and believe in helping one another and treating one another with kindness and respect. They have some of the same values as the community in Waco that we love so much, except they’re spiritual beliefs are vastly different. I tend to favor Waco in the spiritual regard.

Our B&B was wonderful! I’m going to try to attach a walk through video that my mom took of it. I hope it works. If not, maybe I can do it later when I have wifi access. We hope to go back to this place. It was all just so neat.

We enjoyed the concerts too. But I am partial to the Amish and The Farm. It was a great trip overall.

🇺🇸Happy Independence Day🇺🇸

🇺🇸Today we celebrate our two hundred and forty-third birthday as a Nation. On July 4, 1776, the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. For those who may not know, the Declaration of Independence was prophesied some three thousand years before it happened.

In the Old Testament book of Daniel, in the seventh chapter, there are four beasts that Daniel saw. You can read about all of them on, but I will tell you about the one that is relevant to our subject. Daniel beheld a lion with eagle’s wings. He watched until the wings were plucked and given the heart of a man and was made to stand like a man.

There is a nation on Earth today who has the symbol of the lion. It is Great Britain. In 1776, a nation came out of the lion who has the symbol of the eagle. That is the United States of America! Not only are we represented by the eagle, but we have the symbol of a man, Uncle Sam.

So over three thousand years ago, God knew there would be a Declaration of Independence, and the new Nation would play such a significant role in world affairs and prophesied events, that He showed it to Daniel and told him to write it in his book. In one Scripture God said it would be sealed up until the end. Daniel didn’t understand it, but we can because we are the people on whom the end of the world is coming.

I couldn’t be more proud to be an American! I despise this socialist movement that is trying to destroy this great Nation. I say, if you don’t want to live in a free nation, LEAVE! There are plenty of communist nations for you to relocate to. We like our freedom here in the good ole USA. We don’t need, nor do we want, you messing with the deal we’ve got. I want to quote our great President so bad and really tell you how to get out of here, but I won’t use that language on here.

Anyway, happy birthday USA!!! And thanks to all who have sacrificed to make us free. All have given some, and some have given all. I appreciate the price paid whether big or small. I’m a proud American! God bless our armed forces and law enforcement. God bless our President. And God bless the United States of America!🇺🇸
