Walk With Us In The...


It makes us think of Easter. Really it does. The large cross. The tombs.
"In the garden was a new tomb that had never been used." John 19:41

I did visit here last year so please forgive me if the images are similar. We like the Old City Cemetery a lot. It has many Civil War graves and Joe and I like to ramble around in it.

The little details are so sweet on the headstones. The children's graves are very sad. Many more children died one hundred and fifty years ago than they do today.

This is my header image and  how the roses were oriented on the stone. It was not planned. Hardly anything is.

This dove makes me think of He who is Risen The Prince Of Peace.

"They found the stone rolled away from the entrance of the tomb..." Luke 24:3

Joe and I look forward to a lively church service of about one thousand people in the morning and then one thousand more in a repeat service. The music will be stunning. We wept at Christmas {or I did}.

We wish you a lovely Easter with your family and friends.

grace surrounds us

  2. Graveyards are beautiful places to visit. I especially love the roses and the doves. That cross is beautiful...a tribute to the person laid to rest there.

  4. I always find it fascinating too, reading all the old inscriptions on the stones. It makes you think of the people and their lives a hundred or more years ago and what life must have been like for them. Olive and Joe - have a lovely peaceful Easter xxx

  5. How fascinating. I also gravitate towards the older stones.
    Wishing you and Joe a blessed Easter!

  6. I enjoy cemeteries also. They are very peaceful and thought provoking. And very appropriate for this time of year. Hope you enjoy the service tomorrow as much as you enjoyed the Christmas one. Have a beautiful day!

  7. We often visit graveyards when we are away on holiday, they have a very special atmosphere and often fascinating stories. Lovely images.
