The Little Church





Isn't this a sweet little church? Lets come closer to get a better look, shall we? The doors are open, so maybe we should even peek inside. Oh, they are all decorated for Christmas, and the preacher is speaking! My, it looks like he's having a very bad hair day! Perhaps it's the wind, someone really ought to shut that door!! Well, if you haven't guessed yet, this really is a tiny church, it's only about three feet high! It is a Christmas decoration on display at a local park. All the little details are done so well, I thought it was just charming!



When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I'll be there. The Message: Matthew 18:19,20

What a cute little church Ginny, in the first photo it look real. That must be a great display at your park.

The tree in your header photo is beautiful, the room looks like one in a really nice hotel.

That's a sweet, little church Ginny. I have to agree that the preacher's hair could use some taming!!!

Hi Ginny, So glad to see that a park would allow such religious decorations - other than angels or a nativity creche (and those are few and far between in many localities these days). It is charming! Nice Scripture to go with the post. Thanks for brightening my day! Stay warm and have a fabulous day!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

How neat, Ginny.... I love miniatures--and remember seeing them on display one time --either in Texas or Arkansas (years ago)... Sweet little church... And yes, the minister's hair does need SOMETHING... ha

Tell us about your header... Looks like big hotel or office building of some kind.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a lot of intricate detail for such a tiny little church.

George said...

I really like this little church. I'm somewhat surprised that it is part of a display at park, but I'm glad it is.

WhatKarenSees said...

Appropriately described - very sweet!

Ann said...

that is a cute little church. What an awesome decoration. I just love this time of year seeing all the different things people put out. That poor preacher really does need help with is hair though....lol

Kilauea Poetry said...

Well it's all we really need to remember too.
I saw something of this nature(minature type) in Arizona at a museum with my boys back in 2000.
That tree is absolutely gorgeous!!

Remington said...

Very cute! BTW -- I don't think Mr. Brett Favre will play any more this year....

Lucy (aka RHarper) said...

Like your header photo, I was looking at the painting at the back room.

Many people actually have IBS, only they don't talk about it. I must be allergic to some food I eat, my husband says it is the chilli, but it didn't make any difference if I don't take any. It doesn't cause me much discomfort, except when I need to go, i must go. If I go on a whole day's trip, I take a little pill, and that is supposed to dry up the stuff.

In New Zealand, LBL stands for light bladder leakage, for women who have multiple births and a weak pelvic floor muscle. I don't need a pad except when I have a cold. Ahchoo! then it is Oh Dear!
I joke with my kids, it is because of them.

Fred Alton said...

A wonderful miniature display of the Church...something the Lord said he would personally protect, so that even all the wisdom of hell could not prevail against it! Someone spent hours working on that project and did a great job!

Mary said...

Your holiday header is gorgeous and that little church is really dear. It looks like the preacher had a bad hair day :-). Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Annie said...

What a cute church Ginny. And it's in a public park. Kudos to the community that doesn't make a fuss about such things.

Your header today is gorgeous. I'd say keep it up for a few days but then we might miss out on something else. Your daily header changes are rare in blogland (in my experience anyway) and I've come to look forward to them.

Bobbi said...

At first glance, I thought it was a little church that people could go into to pray. We have one of those here in our area. Then as we got closer I thought, wow, that preacher has some wild hair. LOL> Then of course, you explained... This is sweet! And as always, I love the scripture included in your post. Hope you and Phil are well.

Neal said...

Beautiful Ginny. I love your header photo also!
