Ludwig created a fun and interesting post for Mondays similar to Norm’s Thursday Doors – Monday Windows. Do go by and check both sites out for some beautiful photographs.
I have not posted on this in a bit as I have been busy but I had been showing you the beautiful windows from my church. The church was built in the 1800’s and the windows were dedicated to founding members in the late 1800’s. My favorite one I am posting today as it symbolizes who we are and who Jesus is. We are the sheep, sometime lost, and he is the shepherd, always ready to pull us out of harms way.
For all the blessing he has done for us, he always did them kindly, therefore we must turn in like and always be kind.
The appreciation of beauty even in small things gives us a chance to enjoy the artist vision, whether it be man or God. I have been doing the windows of my church and today’s focus is on a couple of the single smaller windows whose color are just as vibrant and beautiful. These windows face a courtyard on the side of the church.
I do apologize for the crooked pictures as I was making sure I had the camera straight with me instead of the slant to the floor which makes them look crooked. But their beauty still shows through. I will do better with the big windows left to show.
In this fun and wonderful medium of blogosphere, if that is such a word, we are gifted with sharing the pictures and words of beauty that move us. What a wonderful thing to be able to do. I will never be able to go across the “pond” but am so grateful for all the photographers who do or live there and share their work for all of us to enjoy.
As an always reminders to me as to anyone who may read my post, remember the most beautiful things to share is love and kindness. Many of the notes I share are beautiful pictures with gentle words expressing the importance of always being kind. I am a firm believer that the smallest act of kindness can shatter a dark gloomy day so I always close with reminders of kindness. Maybe if we spread enough kindness it will begin to take hold and change the world for the good it can do.
Doors and windows are the very breath of a building. They either let people go in and out or they let light and air in and out. Old architecture has always fascinated me with the intricate details they used with masonry and stone. Below are a few from around town that I thought were interesting.
Ludwig has invited us to join his challenge Monday Windows to post your “Monday Window” photos on your blog. Tag your post Monday Window and add #MondayWindow in your text. See other window post here.
Norm has always let us show amazing doors so I am glad someone came up with windows as both show the beauty and heart of a building.
Windows let in the light of day and shine out the light of man at night. Always let your light shine though your window and be kind.
