Blessings and Love

This fabulous brick and stone edifice with magnificent stained glass windows is the home of a Church in our town. It is a half block from our "romantic porch". I took this photo from there. Each day at 10 AM, 12 Noon and 4 PM beautiful music comes from the bell tower. When I have an opportunity to hear the music, I stop and pause to see if I know the words to the tune they are playing. Many times after the last musical notes have floated to an inaudible vibration, the words continue to run through my mind tracing a path across my thoughts as I remember blessings and love.
This week the words playing and replaying were, "Oh God, our help in ages past...our strength in days to come."
Have a blessed and love fill day!
Rest, enjoy!
Love, Rachel

Beautiful picture of the old church. Beautiful music as a daily reminder of God's ever presence with us, as our
Guide and Strength.
Have a wonderful day. Love you,

Up the street from our home is a church that has bells ringing out a wonderful tune. I just love hearing church bells. I will stop and feel the Lords presents more. Thank you for such a wonderful post this Blessed Sunday.

I remember those bells! We had them in El Dorado, too. Except they only played at noon. I always loved to stop and listen.

I nominated you for a blog award! Stop by and pick it up!

Rachel,
That was a lovely post. Nothing like church bells. In my Grandma's
hometown they would chime on the hour and I loved hearing them. Warmly, Deb
