Coloured Glass....

"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."
~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

I love the colour.
Mosaics of glass.
People are amazing that they are ale to create such enduring beauty.
It never ceases to inspire.

I walk into these sacred places and tears rise.
These places make one feel small, but not alone.

People line up to get in to catch a glimpse of their soul being reflected 
in the brass, glass or eyes of their loved ones.

Looking for God. Looking upwards. 
Stories in the glass inspire possibilities.

"I like a silent church..... better than any preaching." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 "I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself. "
~Maya Angelou

We are in the middle of the spiral, circle & round.

I don't have much to say. I think the wise ones say it all and the glass speaks for itself.
You will see something different in these panes than i do.
Small pictures do not do justice to these majestic windows.

Some are  older and some have a more recent style.
Some tell a story some are a pattern.
Some are reflections from nature and others only man made.

Warm tones or blues?

"Live in rooms full of light."  ~Cornelius Celsus

"Time is like the wind, it lifts the light and leaves the heavy."  ~Doménico Cieri Estrada

"In the beginning there was nothing.  God said, "Let there be light!"  And there was light.  There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better."  ~Ellen DeGeneres

What do you see?
Are you feeling light?
Casting light or shadows?

These are for my friends who love colour.
It is hard when your home and heart are in a state of change and waiting.
To you, I hope these windows bring you some inspired peace.

sparkle & twirL * in a colour-full world
