Church in Illinois

I thought I would show a couple pictures of the church that is in the background of this post. It is just out in the country....it feels like it is miles from anywhere, but it really isn't too far to Paris, Illinois. It is a Catholic church...I took a picture at another time that told the date of when it was built but now I have searched and searched and cannot find the photo.
Someday I want to be over there at the right time to get either a sunset or a sunrise in the background. I am always just a little late for a sunset.

We went to see Lorelei yesterday....she is just such a funny little girl. Busy all the time, but doesn't have to have someone entertaining her. She can sit and play and play with her toys. Right now she is the sunshine of our days. She laughs so easily and it is contagious to be around.

You've been finding a lot of great old architectural dwellings lately Rose. I need to get out and take some pictures but it's been so gloomy I've just stayed in.

I bet her laughs ARE very contagious! Enjoy them while you can!

Don't you just love happy children???? I have seen so many kids with no personalities... Lorelei obviously is FILLED with personality and a zest for life. It's not wonder she is such a joy to be around.

Neat looking church... It really is out there in the country all by itself, isn't it????? Gorgeous!
Hugs,
Betsy

These photos are wonderful, Rose. And this church looks almost identical to a Catholic church on I-94 just east of St. Paul, Minnesota. I have a feeling a number of these were built at a certain period in time...

I like the differing views of this impressive church. That steeple is huge. I can see why you want to return here under different sky conditions...it would make a fine foreground for a neat sunset.

In February I am planning a short tour of five old churches in an area in Iowa almost to Omaha. This is a great example. They're so lovely. Thanks for this post.

I really like quaint churches in the country. This is a pretty one.

I like the pictures of the church and agree that a sunrise or sunset in the background would be beautiful. Doesn't being with Lorelei make the day brighter and warmer?

It would be lovely in a sunset, Rose. Be patient, you'll be there at the right time of day...eventually.

Sunsets have been rare here lately. I may have to search my archives for Skywatch this week, ;-)

A lovely church.

I spent the evening with our grandkids--what a treat.
