"For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,
who is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:11

This is another photo taken at a rural Catholic church in Indiana. We were on our way home from the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY when my bride spotted this church in the distance. She suggested that we explore it a little further. So I exited the main highway and we drove over the visit. Like many small, rural churches, it is beautiful and the stained glass is exquisite. There is a testimony in every window. This particular window celebrates the birth of Christ.
I know that I usually save my inspirational song for Friday Thoughts, but this is the Christmas season and there are just too many choices to limit the music to Friday. Here is a song that I have posted in the past. It is a Southern Gospel song, and if you listen to the words, you will discover that it is a Christmas song celebrating the birth of our savior. Signature Sound Quartet sings "Glory to God in the Highest". Enjoy.


  1. It's a beautiful stained glass window. Enjoy your holiday.

  2. Lovely stained glass window, with plenty of ruby red for Ruby Tuesday posting.

  3. Beautiful stained glass window ... perfect choice for Ruby Tuesday ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,
    My Ruby Tuesday

  4. The glass emphasizes the humble beginnings of the Lord. God's power is mighty, but born as a man, Jesus offered a simpler beginning, his might hidden a bit...

    Gotta love a lively spiritual, where the singers are singing out of love but with a powerful joy - it is infectious! The brass adds to the joyful performance!

  5. Love the stained glass. The music is a nice toe tapper too. Excellent.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

  6. love the picture of the stained glass, the song is not the typical slow Christmas tune!

  7. Beautiful stained glass. I can't hardly look at a window live and see what is going on, a photograph is a lot easier.

  8. Beautiful stained glass window. Love the song. My favorite Christmas song/hymn is O Holy Night.
