Can you believe it’s already time for another 10 on 10 post?! One of my favorite sayings regarding parenting is “the days are long but the years are short” – and it totally applies to this monthly photo project – the months just whizz by!

I recently posted this photo {available in my Society 6 shop} from my morning visit to my church.

Being at my church is one of my favorite places to be. The community, the clergy and staff, the friendships, the beauty of the grounds…it’s all truly blissful! The design and architecture that went into it is gorgeous and always makes me want to linger. And heading over mid-week with my camera allows me the opportunity to savor every bit and piece of it! I said it once and I’ll say it again…It’s amazing what you can find around you when your heart finds bliss, your mind is clear, and you have the serenity of a quiet church!

I hope you see the beauty I see and feel the calmness I feel. Enjoy!

    Thank you Connie – I needed that! Serenity definitely delivered 🙂 I love the doors & locks too and agree about shot #5 – crossing my fingers that it makes it over to your Society 6 shop.

    It’s so important to have a place that you can go to refill your peace, and a midweek visit is a great idea.

    Such crisp, clear, beautiful images, Connie! Love the pink, spring flowers and the detail in those sculptures. On first glance, the one of the top of a head looked like frosting on a cake and my mouth started to water! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! 🙂 ❤

    I love all the different perspectives and details you captured in the photos of the statues. Great work. Also that last photo of the grate is amazing. You should frame it. (And I am now following you on society6 . I love society6 🙂 )

    Your pictures do pass me a sense of peace and quiet, reminds me when I used to visit a chapel, while living in Brazil, for a quiet time with myself. Love how you captured the colors in the last image, what is it?
