And I Think To Myself....What a Wonderful World!

What a wonderful world God made for us to live in!  It's a blessing to have the opportunity to travel and see all of the beautiful landscape and sights He made and His creations have made. 

The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world and all who live in it.  Psalm 24:1

Our trip to the National FFA Convention:

Meramec Caverns in Stanton, Missouri

Stalagmites in the caves.  They are amazing!

FFA Members on their way to the convention.

FFA Pride!

Posing at the Meramec Caverns.  Such beautiful scenery!

Fall Colors - St. Louis, Missouri

The Arch & Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri.

Inside the Court House where the famous Dred Scott trial was held.  We watched a video about the trial and slavery.  So sad and so wrong!  It's hard to believe that people could ever think slavery was okay.  Of course, we read about it in Bible times, too, and it was just as horrible then. 

Prejudice is wrong, too. God loves EVERYONE.  Jesus loves EVERYONE.  We should imitate God and Jesus and make it our goal to love everyone as we are commanded to do.  "Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight."

Lauren took several pictures from on TOP of the arch.  I did ride up in the small little bowl tram thing, which had no air conditioning.  And, I did look out of the top, but not too much!  I was glad to get back down, but am glad to have done it - once. :)

Thank you for your prayers as we continue to make our journey to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana!
