Window Views #9 -- Church windows

Wendesday means that it is time for Windows Views. This weeks entries were taken in a small Catholic church that played a big part in my families life in the late forties. When I was two my parents moved back to my mothers home state of Alabama. They left MIssouri with two small children and returned three years later with four and one on the way. During part of that time we lived in a big old house, that had been converted to sleeping rooms and small apartments, to handle the increased need for housing by the soldiers returning from WWll. Our home was directly across the street from this church and it is the church where my second brother was christened. Last December the Old Salt and I drove my mother back to her home state to attend the ninetieth birthday celebration of her sister. While there we took a few side trips down memory lane. Stopping in to visit this church was one of them.

Do stop by the home of Widow Views and check out all the other entries. Heck, you might even want to join the fun http://windowviews2.blogspot.com/

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
