Stained Glass Beauty
Now some people really don't care about the aesthetics of a church and the history behind buildings and communities, but I do. While visiting family in Louisiana during the Labor Day Holiday, my wife, daughter, and I attended a small community church in Houma, LA. They were in the process of a HUGE renovation (see pictures here). The one thing that we both fell in love with were the stained glass window designs that had not yet been added. They were absolutely gorgeous and I have never seen stained glass that looked like these designs in any church. I just wanted to share their beauty with you. They were designed my a local artist from Baton Rouge, LA. I really wish I knew his name. I would love to see some of his other designs. I hope to be able to share photos once they are in the building.

ENJOY!

Thanks, but you lost me with the "talking head."

Growing up Catholic, I really did like to look at the stained glass windows in the churches that I attended. These are, by far, the most interesting. I did not notice the things like Jesus and the Boat in "the Storm" until I posted them. Really nice stuff.
