The Old Country Church
lyrics by JD Sumner
" Oh I'd like to go back
To that old country church
To hear the songs of praise
How the people would sing
It would make the rafters ring
At that old, that old country church"

Thanks for JD lyrics. Tom The Backroads TravellerReplyDelete
Thanks Tom, for taking notice of the lyrics.....The song came to mind, while editing the photo.ReplyDelete
A nice old country church, are those front windows boarded up or is it just artistic licence with the windows?ReplyDelete
It's actually the first time I have ever seen anything like it....it appears to be an ornamental iron frame that is hung on top of the wood. There is no window behind either frame.Delete
i want to sing too ... what a cutie. ( :ReplyDelete
Nice view down on the Chruch, like the painted on windowsReplyDelete
The cutest little church.. in the field.ReplyDelete
The poem is lovely Meggie.
thanks for sharing this..
wishing you a happy week
Thanks Valerie....I've enjoyed your photo of the "new colt".Delete
A sweet church. Love the field around it. I can imagine little kids running around there after a service.ReplyDelete
I can too !! I'm guessing the congregation parks on the grass...Delete
Hi Meggie! Love this little country church! What a peaceful setting. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ellen...I tried to show how it is nestled at the bottom of a hill...Delete
I love your church photos. There is just something about a church in the country. There is an old church a few miles from me, I will have to go there and take some pictures. It's called Harris Grove and is only used for a special event now and then. BTW, have you thought anymore about doing some hand embroidery?ReplyDelete
I try to make each one unique...sometimes that isn't easy. The fact that this one is at the bottom of a protected hill, made it so interesting to me...also no parking lot ! I know it is an active church, from the sign along the road. I will try the embroidery when things settle down a bit....I'm buying another home on the prairie...I'll write a post when I start the project.Delete
Are you leaving your forest cottage?Delete
yes.....I'm a prairie girl. I still spend time there, so I'm going to buy another house.Delete
What a pretty location it has. After attending a Sunday church service, it could be so inspiring to walk out in nature.ReplyDelete
