This is one of the many stone church's built aound here by Rev. Bob Childress. He was the subject of a book entitled "The Man Who Moved A Mountain". It's about three miles down the parkway from us.

Yesterday coming back from Galax I passed by and there were in the graveyard behind this church two freshly dug graves next to each other covered by the usual green canopies.

Sunday night we got a call from Granny asking if we remembered a couple who frequented the restaurant at Doe Run Resort where we had worked. We couldn't put faces with the name. The husband had shot his wife and then killed himself.

Even in this beautiful place tragedy walks among us.

I like that you point out the extremes - of God-given glory, and of unspeakable tragedy, because real life has both. And people, too can have a real 'mix' of qualities, too, that require disciplined care.
