Saturday Snapshot

With hearts full of thanks, we look to the Christmas season with wonder and anticipation.

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.  Isaiah 7:14

The Christmas decorations went up this week.  We have such a gifted team who really put their hearts into this process.

These two snapshots are from The Chatlos Memorial Chapel.  Stop by for a free tour and check it out for yourself.  Click here for hours and directions.

“Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Jesus

William Franklin Graham V, also known as Quinn, was asked by his 3rd grade teacher to compose either a poem or a psalm.

Guess what the great-grandson of Reverend Billy Graham chose?

A Psalm.

Quinn stopped by The Cove recently to share his Psalm with us and we would like to share with you.

Enjoy.

Transformation of The Cove Wreath

Fall has arrived at The Cove!

The air is becoming cool and crisp and many of the vibrant green leaves on our trees and shrubs are beginning to transform to beautiful bright reds, yellows, purples, and browns.

Another transformation that takes place at The Cove three to four times per year is the changing out of the decorations on the enormous grapevine wreath that hangs above the Training Center lobby fireplace.

Many have asked how we physically change out the wreath  decorations, how long it takes, and where the design inspiration comes from.

We have put together a short video to answer those questions and give you a behind-the-scenes look at how our Summer wreath was transformed into a Fall wreath.

Click here to watch the video if it is not displaying on your screen.

We’d love to hear from you.  What sort of seasonal transformations take place either inside or outside your home?  Leave your comments in the comments section below.
