Saturday Snapshot

We recently had three very special days with Cliff Barrows during his 10th annual “Christmas at The Cove with Cliff Barrows and Friends” event.

This year marks the end of his “official” involvement with the event, but as he has always been family and a ministry partner to the Graham family, he is sure to come back for many visits.   “We’ll never have another one like this,” Mr. Barrows said.

Click here for a recap of this wonderful celebration.

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.

Imagine This…

This could be you…

Putting a busy week behind you, you drive through the gates of The Cove. 

Dogwoods, redbuds and rhododendron greet you with splashes of color along the gently curving drive.

IMG_3501_emlThree wild turkeys strut in front of you and dash off to the side of the road.  One turns and spreads his tail feathers, vibrant colors that only God could dream up.   

Peace settles over you. You have heard people say you can feel the presence of God when you come on The Cove property.  You feel that peace.

You have decided to make this outing a mini-retreat, so you check into your inn room.  The room is sweet and comfortable.  There are no televisions.  You embrace the freedom from distractions.

As you walk from the inn to the Training Center, the birds sing, you hear something shuffling through the woods.  A turkey?  A deer?  How great is our God!

It’s time for dinner.  The chef has prepared a prime-rib meal tonight.  The food is delicious and plentiful.  You enjoy fellowship with people from all over the country.  Some returning and others enjoying their first time experience at The Cove.  Stories are exchanged, friendships created.    

IMG_4205_emlNext… an after-dinner coffee on the expansive deck overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains.

Is this your life!? 

Feeling very thankful. 

The concert is about to begin.  You take your seat in the intimate 460-seat auditorium.  There is not a bad seat in the room. 

The lights dim and Chris August steps on stage and begins to sing. 

This soulful singer doesn’t hold back.  Jesus is lifted high.    

After the concert, everyone is invited to come and meet Chris at the meet-and-greet.  What an opportunity!

The evening flies by. 

As you lay your head on your pillow, you thank God for a time of sweet rest and worship.

Shepherds Inn roomSweet dreams…

Breakfast awaits you in the morning.
