I’ve always wanted to participate in Thursday Doors hosted by Norm Frampton (Norm 2.0) But for some reason Thursday always seems to sneak by me and no door is posted.
Last week I was driving through Downtown Fort Worth and decided to stop and take pictures of the doors at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. I was excited about the idea of photographing church doors. I love the architecture of old churches.
Unfortunately as I started taking photos of the doors I couldn’t help but be annoyed with the “no handguns permitted” sign posted at the two outer doors…making it very difficult to get decent photos.
Don’t get me wrong…I am a pacifist and I am pretty sure church is NOT a place where guns need to be carried. But I live in Texas. I live in a state that is very proud of its “open carry” laws and if you are a church and you don’t want gun toting parishioners sitting in your pews…then you need to be very clear about that.
I just wish they had chosen a way to get their point across…Without interfering with my photo!
I hope everyone will visit Norm’s page and click on the blue frog…you’ll enjoy all the doors.
I love this time of year. The monarch butterfly passes through our area as they migrate to Mexico for the winter.
This afternoon I had several monarchs fluttering around my backyard…I’m glad they stopped by!
We recently completed our outreach to the homeless. We met a couple sitting outside an abandoned fast food restaurant. It appeared the couple had all of their worldly possessions within reach.
I noticed a white stuffed bear laying on the table, where they had been sitting, I mentioned how cute I thought it was. The woman thanked me then suggested I take it because it was just one more thing for her to carry. I told her I couldn’t do that. I was there to give, not take. She kept insisting. Finally I struck a deal with her. I suggested that I would take it but only under the condition that I would give it to someone that would benefit from it. She agreed!
A short time later, while passing out food along Lancaster (local “homeless area”), we met a beautiful little girl that approached us with her mom and three siblings. I asked the mom if I could give the little girl a teddy bear…she agreed!
Today I drove past the place I met the original bear owner. I wanted to let her know the white bear found a home. Unfortunately, I didn’t see her…but I will keep an eye out for her. I want her to know that her kindness and generosity made a little girl smile.
