Are You Tired?

This sign is hanging on the old iron fence in front of Buddy’s family’s church...
Trinity Methodist Church here in Lexington, Virginia

These are the rocking chairs the sign is referring to. The nurses from my doctor’s office across the street come over here on warm days to eat their lunches.

It is a very simplistic church inside but the simplicity makes it especially beautiful..

I found this to be a bit interesting.....who am I supposed to feel kicking...Santa...the Devil...the Christ Child about to be born? I do not have the slightest idea, but since it is Christmas I will have to go with my last suggestion. What do you all think? Bud says it has to be the last.

It’s history goes back a long, long time.

  2. Hmmm. I DO wonder what the sign means. Must be the about-to-be-born Christ Child.

  6. Imagine being invited by strangers to sit on their porch. Quite amazing in this day and age.

  7. The inquiring mind of «Louis la Vache» wants to know: when the nurses finish their lunch and get up to go back to work, are we to assume they are off their rockers? :-)

    Lutheran «Louis» posted another Lutheran church, complete with Lutheran joke...

  10. I say the child about to be born

    Ha this church is like a church on the inside with a Cracker Barrel porch! What a great idea! :)

    A local Methodist church has a sign up : I TOO am making a list and checking it twice--GOD
    They left it up for all of December / it makes me smile everytime I drive by ! :)

  12. How nice that the church invites everyone to come sit on the rockers! More churches should have something like that.

  13. I love how welcoming those rockers are -- would almost tempt me to investigate more about the church. But the sign about 'kicking' confounds me.

  14. Lots of history there! That is very cool that they have rocking chairs there for whoever wants to sit a while.
