Sunday Evening and Nothing to Say

.


Sunday evening and I have nothing to say so here is a picture of a door. 'A' used to like picturing doors, although I am not sure if this is one that would receive her consideration!  That lass tended to go for doors on ageing castles, ch√Ęteaus and cathedrals. This is just an unused door on what is now a church with too small a membership to require more than one entrance, and this side door that once led to the gallery has not been in use for many a day.  The minister, a wee man from Glasgow, well past his 70th birthday, is a man who knows his God and continues to follow his calling. A grand speaker and canny man. His wife is what makes him what he is. The Bocking End Congregational Church once had several hundred attending, today there may have been less than thirty, especially as many are older than the minister, he has buried two thirds of his congregation since arriving 20 years ago! They are good people but the fabric is like me, a bit run down.







My empty, tired mind has nothing else to say. Many regard this as a good thing.....

Old, withered looking and a bit blue. And the door isn't looking too clever either...

That's exactly the color I wanted for my front door but the hub wanted darker.

Thank you Mike....


Leaz, can I suggest getting a more thoughtful husband?

I have noted the past tense. It will be rectified. I still like doors and I do believe I would have fallen for this one too. It has seen life and has an interesting story. In fact it reminds me of another blue door I saw recently and it has no story at all.
