the church

so here's the Chimayo church, the one everyone is here to see. the above photo is once you step inside the gate. the photo below is the "front" of the entire church. yes it stands a little crooked. have no clue as to how old it is. long standing before i even arrived in NM 20yrs ago. it's beautiful inside but no photos were allowed to be taken. very old wooden pews inside and almost like stepping back into time. then there is a room off to the side including sacred dirt to mark yourself with. plus there are photos, mostly of Yeshua (Jesus), all over the place with some memorial photos of loved ones. there are loads of crutches hanging too. not sure what those represent. it was all interesting to say the least. reminded me of how far i've come in my spiritual journey not that i was catholic, but moving away from traditional Christian views. It is all Good, all God.
