Shall I Find Faith?

On our travels through our county in Oklahoma, we often pass an old deserted church way out in the country. I have often wanted to stop and explore it and even take some photographs of it. Sunday afternoon we were not pressed for time and we decided to just stop and look around. The church is in a very decayed state and it is sort of sad to see...this little spot has often brought to mind the question Jesus asked while he was on earth, " Shall I find faith (when I return) ?" I had hoped that maybe I could make a painting of it, but really I don't think I shall. It actually is not that picturesque. But it was interesting!

This was the back side 

also in back
We guessed this was a storm shelter.
There was a pile of debris inside,
so we did NOT go down the stairs.

There were also two outhouses in the back,
on opposite sides of the church.
I guess one for women, and one for men.

Here is a view!
at least there was electricity at one time-
an old light fixture was dangling down.

The inside of the church was in sad shape

There is another old abandoned church in one of the small towns my husband drives through on his route has a bell tower. Hopefully I can go with him sometime and take pictures of it soon. (All these photos were taken with my cell phone)

On another note...please join in the National Day of Prayer for America on Thursday, May 7, 2015!
