Some things you just can’t make sense of. Here’s one: Natchitoches… phonetically should be pronounced Natch-i-toe-shez… but instead you say Nak-a-dish. No, I’m not making that up. Nak-a-dish.
So here we are in Nak-a-dish at the Steel Magnolias Bed and Breakfast.
And you know what’s crazy? We have the entire house to ourselves. Guess that’s what happens when you travel on a Monday night. We’re staying in Shelby’s room, and tonight… get ready for this… I took a bath in the very bathtub as Julia Roberts.
We didn’t have any popcorn, but after touring the house, we settled in to watch… you guessed it! Steel Magnolias! My favorite quote, “Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin’ across your face.” Don’t I know it?!
While we get to live it up tonight, Tuesday we’ll make the rest of the journey to Angola, home of the Louisiana State Penitentiary. We’ll spend the remainder of the week behind the fences. And no doubt we will see God at work. I’ll share more. We covet your prayers!
Until then, here’s a few more pics:
