beautiful, beautiful...

We've driven by this church a few times a week, for sixteen years. From the road, it is evident that the window is stained glass, but never have I seen it from the inside... until today.  It was a work errand... and I expected to quickly come and go. But walking in the door, the brilliance stopped me, and help me captive. Breathtaking... and certainly beautiful.

{i wish i had been brave enough to go in and get a beautiful photo... i am borrowing this from the church website}

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
-Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

each of those pieces of glass-- broken and worthless until an artist carefully selected each one and pieced it together into something breathtaking. <3

Love that quote...light from the inside!

THAT is breathtaking.....I had no idea who gorgeous it was from the inside either.

It certainly doesn't look like anything extraordinary from the outside, but, my that is one beautiful window.
