Being a total GRITS~That's Girls raised in the South, I am all about the Southern Way of Life.
Sweet Tea, Biscuits, Fried Chicken, Respecting your Mama and Daddy, God, Country, and Tradition. Southern Girls know that you say Yes Ma'am, and they know that if your man has an earring and long hair, then they'll call him Ma'am, too.
Let's not forget our accent...
Us Southern Belles are known for our Charming, Sweet as Honey, Accent.
In America our Southern Accent is closest to the Queen's English than any other accent. Scottish, Irish, and rural English formed the basis of our language...
GRITS also know that in the South,
Girls know what kind of man they need, they always know what to look for.
Someone who is like...
and last but not least... DADDY!
But we know that the All Mighty will take care of us, when it comes to the Right Man.
After all a true Southern Girl doesn't chase a man... she let's the man chase her...
If your from the South you know what a Moon Pie is, you know that Barbeque is pulled or chopped pork..not just something you throw on the grill, you know that before any girl gets married she has to know how to fry a chicken and make a good ol' biscuit and the perfect glass of sweet tea. In other word's life is just plain better in the South...hehe. Though we don't mind Yankees, we southerner's just seem to enjoy life a little more, and even when it's not so grand, if you ask us we'll reply,'' I'm just Fine, how bout you?'' No matter what.
The Southern Girl
by Samuel Alfred Beadle
The Fairest thing on land or sea
Is the Southern Girl, to me.
You should see her when the stars
Come studding all the sky;
And feel her beaming eye
On you when the moon is full-
Fairest of all that's fair is she,
The Southern Girl, to me.
I thank God that I was born in the South, and if I ever leave it, I'll never forget that I'm a GRITS born and Raised. So Daww-ling until next time, Ya'll come back now Ya hear!
Well Today was the end to a great week, Us girls went to VA, to a Ladies Meeting that Mama was asked to speak at. We had a fun day, and Mama did such a great job speaking!

On the way Home you know we had to stop at My Favorite place and get a Drink... you guessed it, Mcdonalds! So after a fresh dose of Caffeine Me, Sarah, and Jennifer sang Bluegrass, Sacred Heritage, Epley Family and any other song we could think of, and tried to get every trucker to blow his horn, on the way Home... Fun Times!

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
The fruits of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: againest such there is no law.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill ,and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
The People of Israel
I am crucified with christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
