Why we celebrate.

We have neighbors that started their (illegal) fireworks in June. It’s gonna be a long week. I don’t think we’ll go see the fireworks this year. With week-long booms Continue reading

It is well, it is well with my soul

A day out enjoying God’s creation with the man I married is just what I needed. I had tried to go see a Sunburst Falls while hubby was at his yearly golf weekend but things just didn’t work out. I really wanted to see it but he really preferred I not go alone and said we could go when he got back even though he is extremely busy right now. Boy, am I glad I waited.

I prayed nothing unexpected would happen with Tyler while we were gone and we took off for the day to see a list of six waterfalls I picked out. Finding them along with my shoulder issues were both greatly helped by my husband. All of them had mileage from an intersection but I wanted to see Sunburst Falls first so he had to add and subtract mileage to find where to park for the next waterfalls on the list. Plus he was better at maneuvering my low sitting car around the uneven ground and even thru water.

We saw 2 waterfalls on our 2nd hike for 2018

Between my shoulder, our cats and hubbies schedule we sure haven’t done much hiking this year. I fetched the bear spray from my pristine camera backpack and we took off for our make up anniversary outing we postponed.

We changed the place to see and decided on Raven Cliff Falls in SC. Raven Cluff Falls is on Matthews Creek in Ceasars Head Park. It is the tallest waterfall in South Carolina, somewhere between 320 and 400 feet, depending on what you read and where they measured as it looks like the start of it could be hard to determine. Regardless of the exact size, it was a site to see. Continue reading

Merry Christmas from the Maxwells

Greatest gift

Merry Christmas friends and family!

I was asked recently if I was religious. I wasn’t sure how to answer other than we are Christians who believe Christianity is different than all other religions because Christ comes to you instead of you working your way or being “good enough”. He loves us all. Period.  We believe in God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit, faith, prayer, grace, and salvation. We believe Jesus died for our sin and if we accept this gift of Jesus in our place, paying our sin debt, that we don’t deserve, or could have in any way earned and accept Jesus as our Savior that we can have eternal life in Heaven.

I don’t really see how anyone could look at this awesome beautiful intricate world and not see something bigger than themselves. In this spirit and because we pray every person, all family, and every friend also accept His gift, we wish you all a blessed Christmas and pray you know the real reason for the season.
