Dubina Texas Historical Painted Church.. ...for InSPIREd Sunday

It's easy to be inspired when walking the land around one of
The Painted Churches,
all within close proximity of my home.
Although the community population is only 44,
there is a Sunday Mass.
Anytime I have out of town guests,
I manage a tour of several of these churches.
The hand-painted interiors are exquisite.
As you can see, it is a remote location.
When you enter, the sky blue ceiling immediately catches your eye.
There are hundreds of tiny gold stars,
 hand-painted on the ceiling.
If you would like to see more of the interior,

There are more photos to share with you,
 from a previous post.
The doors are always open for viewing....but, at certain times of the day,
 a gate is placed before the inside entrance.
Such was the case today.
I had to literally lie flat on the floor,
place my camera lens through the bars,
to capture the above photo.
I would say it was well worth it....
Enjoy your Sunday.

  1. Very picturesque church. I like his white façades and architecture.
    Your photos are great. You showed the beauty of the place.
    Greetings from Poland.

    1. thank you for your comment....did you notice both of our church posting have a sky blue ceiling with the tiny gold stars?

  2. ...gorgeous inside and out. I've seen two painted church in Hawaii.

    1. Hello Tom...there are 20 painted churches in Texas, built by early Czech and German settlers. 4 of them are within a 12-mile drive of my home. All have been maintained and still have a weekly mass.

  3. Beautiful old church especially inside. You were lucky to get to see inside like that, I don't get that chance.

    1. Hello Bill...thanks for your comment. Yes, I would say I am lucky they are open. I find it very disturbing when a church door is locked, but fully understand why it must sometimes be this way. After all, you would think this would be the one place to find solace, day or night.

  4. That sky blue ceiling would be very pleasant to see every week.

    1. It is, and peaceful makes you look upward, and, that is a good thing.

  5. This is a real, so pretty inside.

    1. And to think, I have 3 more of these beauties, all in a 12 mile radius of my home.
