Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Children and Christmas Lights

Garvan Gardens, a beautiful botanical garden here in Hot Springs, has the most awesome light display I've ever seen.  They have acres and acres of the forest decorated with lights, toy soldiers, gingerbread houses, model trains running around and around, and even fish made of lights "jumping" up out of the lake.  My grandchildren loved it.  :)

It sounds gorgeous and it looks like the little ones really enjoyed it.

How long will it be up? Is it every night? What else is there to see/visit in the area this Christmas season?

We have something similar here at the Botanical Garden Light Display but yours sounds much more Grand. Don't you love to see things through the eyes of those precious grandchildren? Makes everything so much more special. Hope you and yours has a very Merry Christmas. I've enjoyed getting to know you and some other special Blogland friends. BTW, your profile pic is very flattering! You are a very pretty lady!
Blessings
