Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

A House of Worship

This is where Mimi and the Mister go to church every Sunday. It's the Kaysville Tabernacle and it was built in 1912. It's about a block and a half from Mimi's Cottage so we're able to walk to church when the weather is good.

It has wonderful architecture, wood trim and moldings.

Not to mention gorgeous stained glass windows. In the mornings when the sun is pouring through these windows, little rainbows of color are everywhere.

We love this building so much. We are so blessed to be able to see our neighbors and friends here each week.

We listen to the beautiful music, we sense the history of the people who've met in this building before us. But mostly we feel the spirit when we renew our covenants and worship in this wonderful place.

I know it well...it is so beautiful. I love the windows, what treasures they are, and it has been so well taken care of. Lucky you to get to go there every Sunday. There is a really old one here too that is our stake center, I'll post about it one day. Come say hi :D

What a beautiful space in which to worship God. I love old churches with their beautiful wood and stained glass. Our church is over 150 years old...so much history right in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Thanks for sharing these pictures Mimi.

I too love old churches, how nice to worship in one each week Mimi.
Still another reason I need to move into your neighborhood.
It's beautiful. Think I went to the nativity there at one time...is that the place?
Your making Julie homesick for Kaysville.

The new churches that are being built now are very functional, but they are neglecting the beauty that could (and should) be included in the design. Lucky you to be near such a treasure.

I love this old building, we still have the old AG ward building. Not much as style goes...just keep adding on and adding on! The church building is beautiful.

Can I come and go to church with you MImi. Now beautiful. We use to manage a motel in Kaysville for a few months. We went to an old building, I wonder if that was the one. I'll have to ask John.

come visit

Mimi Sue, You are so lucky to go there. I have many fond memories ofmy growing up years attending the tabernacle.

It is amazing! I love this building. You are blessed. I have to go to church in the square no architectural beauty buildings with narrow hallways and small classrooms. I miss the old days when the buildings were huge but your building is even eras before those. Just amazing, truly amazing. To me that is what churches in heaven will look like.

What a beautiful place of worship. I love the older churches. The inside of yours reminds me of the chapel at the mission in San Juan Capistrano. The stained glass windows are beautiful too.

Jenny said...

What beautiful architecture. The stained glass is amazing.

I wish they still made the chapels like the old ones......that is so absolutely beautiful....kinda jealous!
