People are like Stained-Glass
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
This quote gives me a bit of license to share the newest addition to our loft. It is a 100+ year old painted glass window that was removed from St Mary's Church in Maryville, MO (my wife's childhood church) around 1980 when the church was demolished. Ann's dad bought it and had it encased in a box backlit with flourescent bulbs. I recently got it from storage, had it removed from the oak case and framed. It looks great hanging in our loft and will now remind me of the people that make my life beautiful.
