Easter 2013

 I spent this morning with Jesus. Looking up a a representation of Him hanging on a cross. In the early morning hours. Thinking about what He had done for me. To save me. To save you...if you will allow it. Sometimes I forget...or just don't think about...His crucifixion. The pain. The agony. Being alone. I felt a smidgen of that this morning. But the longer I was there, the more at peace I felt. For I am loved. By the Creator. His Son. His Holy Spirit. I am one of His own. I am His child.  I will have reason to celebrate on Sunday. For He lives!  If all you and your family have to look forward to tomorrow is some chocolate candy in a basket, let me tell you this...There's more. Much more...Jesus Christ died for you and then rose again to give you eternal life. All you have to do is accept Him. It's that simple. Really. And when you do, life takes on a whole new meaning. One with purpose. One with joy. Thank you, Jesus.

These photos were taken at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Vicksburg, Miss. Call me and I will take you to see if in person. And we can talk....

St. Louis, MO

I was able to visit St. Louis, MO, last week and got to visit the Gateway Arch. It was a wonderful experience, especially when this eagle flew below me along the Mississippi River. How cool is that? Please click on the photos to enlarge them for better viewing.

Rodney, MS

 Visited Rodney, Mississippi, this past weekend. The Flood of 2011 took its toll on the town, especially the Rodney Baptist Church, above, which had its interior swirled around by floodwaters. Please click on each photo to enlarge it, to better see the details.
 This is the same photo as the one at top, except with a poster edges filter applied to it.
 Here is the church in color. I love the cupola on top.

 The church doors are wide open now and you can go into the church. The photo above is from the balcony of the church looking down into the sanctuary.

 These pews were all pushed into a corner of the corner.

 The pulpit still stand strong and proud.

 A photo from the small choir loft of the church, directly behind the pulpit.

 The songbook on the piano is in the Rodney Presbyterian Church, which now has its doors wide open.

 A torn hymnal on one of the front pews.

 A view of the church from the rear of the sanctuary.

 The pews have doors in which to enter.

 Above is view of the bell of the church, shot upward from the balcony of the church. That is the bell rope.
 This chair was sitting in the Masonic Lodge, which is now wide open to all who visit. I was expecting to find something a bit more exotic, but did not. There was a stairway to the second floor at the rear of the building, but the floor to that staircase was not something I trusted to walk upon.

 A bench in the front of the lodge.

 A wide angle view of the right side of the first floor.

 The front of the building held these old voting booths.

 The Masonic Lodge. It used to have a sign above the door, which if you visit my other blog, you can see.

 Back to the Rodney Presbyterian Church. This is the piano and round bench  in the back of the church.

 The hole in the balcony floor for the bell rope.

 The balcony of the Rodney Presbyterian Church was quite interesting, featuring only this one pew. If you sat in the pew, you could see the pulpit but not any of the sanctuary pews. The ladder behind the pew leads to the belfry.

Rodney Presbyterian Church, with its famous cannon ball above the center window. With all these buildings exposed to the elements and vandals, they won't be around much longer. Go see them while you can.
