The Historic First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

First Presbyterian Church of Highlands, North Carolina

I like taking pictures of churches and courthouses, when I go traveling. They are some of the few things that all places in America have in common. I saw this wonderful church when I was in Highlands, North Carolina earlier this year. Here is some information about this church.  According to Wikipedia:

The First Presbyterian Church is a historic church at 471 Main Street in Highlands, North Carolina. The single story wood frame church was built in 1883-85, and occupies a prominent site in downtown Highlands, surrounded by a period picket fence. It is the oldest church in the city, and was built by Marion Wright, a local master builder. It is stylistically a vernacular interpretation of Italianate architecture, which is most prominent in its belfry tower, which features a flared roof with extended bracketed eaves. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.

Endgame: 2015

I have not written an end of the year post since 2013. 2014 and 2015 were interesting years for me. Here is a brief recap:

  1. I fell in love, and I am still in love with my wonderful one.
  2. My father found out that he has stage IV lung cancer.
  3. My father is doing much better; the mass is reduced by one-half.
  4. I have returned to the Public Defender fold. 
  5. Bloom County (and Opus) has returned to us! Praise the Lord!
  6. I have traveled a lot in the last two years.

I look forward to 2016. I am hopeful that it will be a good one for the people that I love and cherish. I wish you a brave new year. Let all anguish, pain, and sadness leave your heart, and may your road be clear. Until I see you again, my friends, take care and be well.


Love and joy come to you

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too;
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year
And God send you a Happy New Year.

It was ugly as sin, but a win is a win! I said it’s great to be a GEORGIA BULLDOG!
