  Sale Pending ~ 5 Acres on Brumley Road There is a sale pending on these 5 acres on Brumley Road in Walker County.  It’s no wonder as to why. Small acreage that is unrestricted is highly desired in this neck of the woods!   Only 5 miles from Riverside and 15 miles from Huntsville, this location offers the feel of country living and small town life, but close enough to a big city to enjoy restaurants, shopping and even college as Sam Houston State University is only 20 miles away with NO TRAFFIC! Oh yeah! This was a sweet deal!   This transaction is being rolled into a mobile home purchase, and that does not always work out.  So, if you were thinking “RATS! I missed my golden opportunity!” Then write a backup offer on this bad boy, just in case! Stranger things have happened and if thei...

  Be Thankful Challenge 2013 Day 2     I live in a VERY small town. So a few weeks ago when Broyles Chapel sent over word to the ladies at Riverside Baptist Church that they were having a community women's conference, several of us put it on our calendar and today we attended.   I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it was. The music was fantastic, the message was just what I needed to hear, and the men served the women supper after the conference!   One (The Pastor of Living Word Holiness Church in Riverside) was even man enough to wear an apron!      So on this 2nd day of November, I am thankful to be a part of the family of God and to live in a community where the churches love to worship and serve together.    I am especially thankful for Broyles Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, ...

I hope they will spend many happy years at the lake making memories with their family!!   I was blessed to represent the sellers in this transaction. I sold them this property 6 years ago, and I was thrilled to be their REALTOR of choice again when it was time for them to sell. They are getting ready to retire and are in the process of building their retirement home.  I am so excited for them and I am looking forward to listing their current home when the new one is built!! :)             Just Listed! 1 Audrey Lane on Lake Livingston !

Sweetly Broken   I shot this photo behind the Riverside United Methodist Church. They have a little prayer garden and a gazebo that overlooks the cemetery. I love the bridges and statues. It's quiet and comforting. The day that I shot this photo, I just happened to be there at the right time that the shadow of one of the crosses pointed directly to the angel statue. I have since tried to recapture the shot. You know... shoot it a little better. But every time that I visit.... the shadow is... well.... just a shadow! So far, this was my one and only chance. The photo reminds me of the a Jeremy Riddle song called Sweetly Broken. This following video is a cover of it, but is very powerful. Its hard to watch and makes me cry. So if you can't watch it, try to close your eyes and just listen ...
