If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Friday Foto Friends







I'm participating in Friday Foto Friends and if you'd like to also, just click here to link up.

Hubby and I visited with our daughter and grandson this week.  If you want to see pictures of them, you can check out yesterday's Thankful Thursday post.  I thought I'd post a few pictures of some things hubby and I enjoyed while we were there.

We saw this old church up near Lake Michigan in Indiana

We got Subway sandwiches and ate lunch by Lake Michigan in one of the National Parks.  It was so beautiful out that day.


  
We took a drive over to Illinois and came upon a section of the Historic Route 66 and I grabbed a couple pictures of some of the iconic Route 66 stuff.  Like this Sinclair Gas Station Dinosaur

I loved this guy at the Launching Pad Cafe.  Unfortunately the Cafe is closed down.

President Lincoln
While in Illinois we visited the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.  It was absolutely beautiful and so big.

There were section after section of graves for our military and their family.  Such a sobering thing to see.  So sad that so many have given their lives for our freedom.  I am so thankful for each one.

    I used to live on Lake Huron. Sigh. Memories! Your Lake Michigan photo looks similar.

  2. I have only seen one of the Great Lakes. How cool to live close enough to visit. I didn't know about the Abraham Lincoln Cemetery. Praise God for the brave people who fought to keep this country free and may our freedom continue.

    We have a dinosaur like that by me.Very old and beloved. I don't think it is a Sinclair gas Dino though as that one seems to be.
    Love the photo of the church. So peaceful looking.
    Have a lovely weekend

  9. Such a quaint church. I sometimes wonder what icons are left of Route 66 so thanks for sharing these! It is a very sobering scene to see a small portion of those who died for their country.
