It was a beautiful Sunday here in Alberta!! Warmer temperatures and sunshine had one hoping spring is just around the corner. After church we were on the road to a small community called Oyen for game three of Ben's second round of playoffs. While driving around the little town, we came across this old church. Old church buildings are right up there with some of my favorite building to try and capture in a photo. I trudged through some rather big snow piles that were around this now closed building. This will be my Mosaic Monday post over at the Little Red House as well as Mellow Yellow Monday
I grew up in a few small communities in Saskatchewan. Wapella and Leader were the smallest towns. I grew up as a PK (preacher's kid) and have wonderful memories of the small churches that my dad was a pastor at. Today, I was also reminded that you do not need to be in a church building to say a prayer or share your thoughts with the God who created you. Ben was having a bit of a rough first period in his game today. It found me pacing and praying :) and thankful that the God of this huge universe cares about a mom watching a hockey game.
I am also posting some pictures from the internet and one picture from my trip to Europe of other country churches. Oh! Ben's team won their game today and are now onto the League Championship game next week end. Go Colts!
