Stained Glass Windows


The Husband and I wandered about the country roads yesterday afternoon for my birthday treat. Our first stop was at the small old church in Tres Pinos, California, population nearly 500. (These links will lead you to my posts about the church and town, if you're interested in know about them.)

We happened to be in luck. The church doors were open.  I'm not a churchgoer, but I find comfort sitting inside this church every so often. Maybe it's because I was baptized there.

As always, I enjoyed contemplating over the stained glass windows. They are eloquent in their simplicity. They are poetry.

    1. Thanks, Eunice. In a nearby artist town, a stained glass artist let a friend and I see the sea-themed window she made in her living room. What a treat that was.

    1. I wonder if having stained glass windows in churches is significant. Something for me to look up. I started reading a bit about the history of stained glass. It was fun to imagine the accidental discovery of sand turning into glass.
