I always slow down for stained glass windows. I get lost in the design and intricacy of them. As a child my Mom instilled an early appreciation for stained glass art in me. She told me how painstakingly some of the glass was cut and the leading that secured the glass in place. Mom used to give tours in our local church and of course the stained glass windows and their stories were the centerpiece of her tour. My art history classes in college reinforced Mom's art appreciation efforts. So today when I passed this window I stopped for a moment and then I had to take a picture.
