Day 58

Happy Sunday! More churchy things today. I actually love Sundays. We usually go to church, then grab something to eat. And, let me tell you, for a mom... this is heavenly! I love not having to cook on Sunday, and if I'm lucky, everyone will order MORE than they can eat and take it home! Then, warm it up for dinner. Yes!

Our church has B-E-A-U-tiful stained glass windows. The windows were designed by a student of Tiffany. It was originally 1st Presbyterian church, then bought by our non-denominational Bible church in the 70's. I took photos of one side, while they are beautiful, I think the other side is my favorite. But, the photos of that one didn't seem to come in as clear.. or just didn't give it justice in my own opinion. Those would be of Palm Sunday. I just think it's gorgeous. It shows a lady walking with a huge palm branch, and ivy all around the windows. The photo I took, is the opposite side of the church representing an angel blowing the horn, celebrating Jesus' resurrection. Actually, it's the reason we are saved, so it is very significant!

I LOVE stained glass windows in churches. Our church doesn't have any stained glass like this. This is a gorgeous shot.

Very beautiful! I hope to find a church with stained glass when we move, but most important I hope to find a church that I am comfortable in ;) I need to take a photo of our church, it is nicknamed the "Flying Diaper" church.

I'm with you... I've always loved Sundays! They're my favorite. As a kid, we often went out to eat after church. I'm working on my husband about instituting that for us! Beautiful window!
