I just arrived home in Texas, from visiting my Mom on Long Island, NY. It is always fun for me to go back and see her, other family members and friends.
This time there were some changes to see too! Below, is a picture of the the church that I attended while I grew up. I also, was married in this church building.
On either side of the front doors are 2 arched stained glass windows. They used to be green shutter pieces, made out of wood. The stained glass windows used to be installed on the back of the building, where in the past they could be seen, but now, with the town growing up around the building, they were not seen. The membership decided to have the windows moved to the front, since they would fit perfectly in the spaces occupied by the green wooden shutters.
Here is the picture, taken at night. The gorgeous windows show up even better, being lit, at night.
One of Mom's and my favorite places to visit is the harbor. This time, we were excited to see the sailboats out. Mind you, the air temp was 36F and the water 40F. It was also very windy, the sailors had a fun time!
