No Comparison

A couple of weeks ago my whole family headed down to the Smoky Mountains for a good ole’ family vacation.  Maybe we lost our minds, but my family is close knit, and we enjoy each others company.  For our first vacation in 8 years we went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Now, for those of you who have never had the privilege of visiting this mountain city, let me sum it up for you.  There are three things to do in Gatlinburg: Eat, Shop, and Spend Money.   Now, I am not trying to be cynical.  We had a FABULOUS time in our cabin, and we saw the sights of Gatlinburg.  We made some great memories, and we laughed a lot. 

It was fun….

There is just this weird juxtaposition in Gatlinburg though.  You have outlet malls, fudge shops, mini golf paradises, quirky museums, and the BEST DOUGHNUTS IN THE WORLD (ala the Doughnut Friar, a must visit in my book)

Now I ask you, look at what we make:

And He makes:

Now, do you really question whether or not what He does is worthy of all glory, and honor, and praise? 

Me neither.
