I have a love affair with houses. I have a love affair with beautiful architecture. Oftentimes I "find God" more in architecture of old churches than in nature. (Please don't think that's sacrilegious - it's just always been true of me.) I find that being in such a beautiful environment to calm me and help me focus inward. I'm awestruck that God would give mankind that kind of ability.
I never really thought seriously about living IN a church (except as a young child as I watched Sound of Music), but after seeing these photos, I might be willing to consider it. This came to me as a forward from my mother-in-law - and I'm simply awestruck. The church itself is breathtaking - and the owners decorated it so tastefully! I could spend an hour absorbing each photo - the massive, yet understated pieces - it's phenomenal! This old church is in Kyloe, North Cumberland, England. The couple who purchased it decided to restore it instead of renovating (which cost 3 times less money). They kept the outside as it was ... here's the inside.
I'm sure you don't live IN a church ... but I certainly hope God is in your home anyway!
