I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
We enjoyed our local cathedral's beauty before Christmas while attending their yearly gift to the community-Christmas at the Cathedral.
We have done this several years-the last few with brother and sister-in-law Brian and Dena.
I love the old fixtures and beautifully restored walls and ceiling.
They used various lighting during the program which highlighted the altar's beauty.
Bonus: There was an exhibit of the St. John's Bible in the basement. I had forgotten it was going to be in town, and was thrilled to discover it down there. The St. John's Bible is the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned in 500 years. http://www.saintjohnsbible.org/
