Doyle's Vineyard in Durham NC

Image
I was in the mood to explore.  I called Erica and said "let's visit Doyle's Vineyard".  I did not have to ask her twice.
Doyle's Vineyard is located in Durham NC on NC Highway 751.  Doyle's is the RTP tasting location for RagApple Lassie Vineyards in the Yadkin Valley of NC.
Doyle's has a Facebook page where you find a list of upcoming events.  I love how they open their winery to the community.  In the past I have seen dog-friendly events, Easter Egg Hunts for both adults and children, they even had an owl release.  This all sounds fantastic to me, plus you can sip their wine while enjoying the fun:-)
They have a main lobby area and from there you can enter the tasting room through a narrow passageway.  Erica ventured in before me.... What a unique and interesting room. I love the label.  Notice the arrowhead shaped pendent on the cow?  There is story behind the pendent and the cow.  You can read more at the RagApple Lassie website.

Morning Motivation...God's Power Works in Our Weakness..2 Corinthians 12:9

Image
"Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me."2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT



"God wants His grace to be completed in your weakness. You never really experience the grace unless you see the need for it—and even that realization comes by grace. The power of Jesus' grace is not fully seen until weakness is fully acknowledged. The moment you are overwhelmed with your absolute helplessness is the moment you are ready to hear Jesus say, I’m all the grace you need." Quote above by Walk in the Word with James MacDonald ********** Weakness, that is what many of us feel when faced with an unwanted separation and pending divorce.  The weakness found in the hurt, the fear, and the confusion.  The weakness found in the unknown, the betrayal, the lies, the future.  I was, as James MacDonald puts it, "overwhelmed with absolute helplessness."  I pray…

Another Broken Egg Cafe in NC

I was glad to hear they have opened a new restaurant in my area.  Another Broken Egg Cafe.  They serve breakfast and lunch.  It is opened 7am-2pm daily.  I have been 3 times since they opened.  I really enjoy both the decor the food and the service.
