Gratitude Project: Day 8
After a week of anniversary vacation fun, we stopped on the way home to reminisce about where it began just 1 year ago.... in a 125 year old little church on the side of the road. Last March we were walking into this chapel with our families and friends full of excitement and anticipation to start a new life together in our 50's; and today we sat on those same steps realizing God's enormous puzzle that put our pieces together.
Today I am grateful for a little white church on the side of the road.
1. I am still in love with the beaten and battered allure of this 125 year old church on the side of the road in Thurbur, Texas. It reminds me of the truth in our human existence. We too carry life's battle scars and bruises to our structure, BUT.... underneath the brokenness is a charm that's glowing with the lessons only time can teach.
2. This precious little church was an almost exact halfway point between where we first met, and where we met again after 35 years. It was like some magical symbolism representing the merging of old and new.
3. St. Barbara's Church is everything I love in an old building. I get a giddy glow at the thought of exploring an old structure. I get chill bumps as I touch every doorknob, and feel the wood on the aged walls. I adore the creak of weathered floors and the views through broken windows. My creativity runs wild as I imagine the stories these walls may hold; and I smile and soak in the moment. St. Barbara's Church now holds a new precious love story within its walls... and this one is ours!
