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.

Great photos Susie. As you've no doubt realised from reading various posts on my blog I love stained glass church windows, and these are truly beautiful :)ReplyDelete
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.Delete

I love stained glass windows, we have many beautiful churches in the UK so every time we have one of our cottage holidays we always visit a local church, always a lovely place to sit and reflec..ReplyDelete

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.Delete
I wonder who gets the fun of washing them.Delete
