Friday My Town Shootout..


Today's topic is Places of Worship..by Rebecca. Many of you know I live in the garden district of our town. I love it, I really do. Lots of older homes, ours is about 100. One of the things I love about living here is the church bells. Not annoying ones, the lovely twice a day tolling that makes me feel at peace. I am not Catholic but this beautiful Catholic church is just up the street and around the corner from us. It has been here a good long time..but it is a stunning building.

When my preschoolers and I walk by they insist that it is a castle, not a church..they are convinced..no swaying the three year olds!!



Of course there is something to be said about worshiping in a place like this..how could you miss the grandeur and heart touching beauty here?


When I look upon something like this...I give thanks that I am blessed with delicate beauty like this in my life!!

Namaste, Sarah

Very nice. When we were in Europe I just loved the tolling of the bells. It reminded me of the wedding scene in the Sound of Music! I just loved it! Yes, some are annoying, but not the ones we heard in Europe, they were lovely.

Beautiful! The church sort of looks like a castle. Love the sound of church bells. When the wind is from the North, we can hear the bells at the Lutheran church up the road. Wonderful.

I love the pointy part of the building. Oh, and you mentioning the sound of bells reminds me of an old black and white building. I really like your nature shots too.

It is so joyous to hear the church bells ringing, isn't it?
From the eyes of a three year old, gothic (whether revival or not) is gothic. The detailing on the steeple is beautiful. The natural beauty that surrounds you is stunning too. Loving your top photo from Tuesday, too. A friend from art class did a pastel rendering of a similar picture of frosted leaves. Gorgeous.

Beautiful photos! I love the sound of church bells too.
My first boss, at a horse farm, always said that her church was out in the forest riding her horse on a quite Sunday morning. I have to agree with her! Nothing more beautiful, peaceful and serene as nature.

Gosh, I can't remember when I last heard church bells ringing. I can imagine how the little ones would think that church is a castle. Lovely past!
