Christ on Cross
When I was in Innsbrook, Austria, I took a day for myself to just walk around the city in the Febuary cold, and I mean cold, it was the coldest weather I've ever been in. So much beautiful snow, not what I was used too. But it was a beautiful day, no clouds in the sky. So I walked and every time I would see a church I would walk in. The churches were the oldest standing churches, some built in the 11th century. I think they were called cathedrals. I wish I'd written everything down back then, but I didn't. But I do remember the feeling I had when I walked in this one. As soon as I walked in the cold disappeared and I felt a warmness and had to take off one of my layers, then glowing and pulling me close was this Jesus on the cross. I don't think the picture really captured my feeling in my heart. But it was a moment. It was one of the highlights of my day.
