Sylvatus Christian Church is right down the road from my house. I have always loved the view of the church from the road. Yesterday I took myself and my trusty camera out for a ride around Caroll County. I love Carroll County. The roads go everywhere and it is nearly impossible to get lost! No GPS here. Just pure adventure and a tank of gas. ( Let’s not mention the price!)
Riding these country roads is instilled into my soul. My parents used to take us out on Sunday afternoon jaunts and now we take our girls- usually on two wheels though!! So, getting my camera and going out for the morning was just the thing I needed! I see God in everything and these pictures all point to our Creator, from the front door, to the steeple rising into the heavens. I love old churches and I love our Lord and Savior.
I don’t have the history on this one…yet…but as I was taking photos I wondered about the people there-who are they, where are they now, what do they do, and how has God touched their lives through this little white church on the hill? I know the Pastor here and I know that he loves the Lord with all his heart. He is a man after God’s heart.
I am going to be doing some artwork based around these photos. It won’t be one of these but a collage of each one. A piece here, a piece there. You may not even recognize it as this church! That’s the fun of being creative! No boundaries! I can tell you that you will see God in it when I am done with it! So…if you see me with paint stained hands and clothes- you’ll know what I’ve been doing…..
