Fall Vacation 09 ~ Sat 9/26 Groom, TX
On our way to Colorado with Linda and Philip, we spent the night in Amarillo, Texas. Just outside Amarillo is a small town called Groom, TX. This is the cross that sits on the side of the highway. It is beautiful at night! The man that built the cross is a local engineer that lives about 30 miles from the property the cross is on. He felt like God was leading him to build a cross, so he built it with no place to store it. Someone donated the property and the cross was moved to its current location. The bronze statues have been added to tell the story of the last week of Christ's life.
All around the base of the cross is bronze statues of the last week of Christ life. IT IS TOTALLY AMAZING!
This is a must see if you are headed toward Amarillo!
This is the view outside the door of the tomb! What am amazing angle to get the tomb, the angel and the cross all in one picture!
I am a wife,(thank you Bill for putting up with me for so many years!!), A mother (who loves her children more than the world), and nana to a beautiful grandaughter, Jordan, (who is the joy and light of my life!!) I am a Christian woman who loves God and her family! I love to cook and try new recipes. These are some of our favorites! My favorite Bible verse is...Jer 29:11 (NIV)
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
