On this date in 1796, the great state of Tennessee was admitted into the union as the 16th state of the United States of America.
In my church’s men’s ministry breakfast this morning we were discussing our great state, especially the area in which I live. We are truly blessed to live in an area that worships and honors our Creator freely. We are surrounded by the beauty of his creation. Visitors from out of state are always amazed at the beauty of the area, the friendliness of the people, and how the troubles of many of the other parts of our great Republic are but a distant memory while enjoying their visits here. Denise and I were led here for a reason!
Happy Birthday volunteer state!
