While driving through a small Texas town last week end, I spotted the flower covered cross.
I'm sorry to say the doors were locked.
Even from the outside, one can see how beautiful the windows are.
It wasn't until I edited the photos, did I see the bird at the right of the steeple.
The church is a relatively new structure, dating 1950.

love the rose window but am particularly intrigued by that last image of some sort of pitcher-fountainReplyDelete
Thanks Gerald....I was too. It may have a reference to the Gospel of John, chapter 4, the Samaritan Woman at the Well. As I was writing the post, I remembered the song, "Come to the Well" .Delete
i guess folks have to be careful this day & age - locking doors i mean. i love the watering pot ... so cool. ( :ReplyDelete
Hello Beth.....I think the bottom part is suppose to look like a well....most of the churches, on the prairie, are open during the day....Delete
The flower-decorated cross is really unusual!ReplyDelete

Hi Liz...I'm guessing it is an Easter tradition....the cross certainly gets your attention.Delete
I'd love to see the windows from the inside on a sunny day. Tom The Backroads TravellerReplyDelete
Hello Tom....the next time I'm traveling through, I will check again to see if it is open. I agree, the windows would be spectacular from the inside.Delete
Hello dear Meggie..ReplyDelete
such a lovely cross outside the church, what a wonderful idea.
What a shame the church was closed.. but these days.. people steal things from churches.
When i was younger, the church doors were always open.
wishing you a happy week..
Hello Valerie.....I think it depends on the community....maybe it is based on the crime rate. I'm not sure, but on the prairie, there are still churches with unlocked doors. There is something very sad about the locked doors.Delete
