What I found

theme – what I found

St. Stephen statue

We found this statue of a Saint while my husband John and I were cleaning up our yard this Spring. The previous owners had lived here more than 20 years and their grandson grew up in the house, so there are signs everywhere of him growing up… From an old Tonka dump truck to the treehouse that had been torn down to rocks stacked to make a fire pit. We both went through things thoughtfully and found spots to place among the backyard.

This one is my favorite… I believe he is St. Francis. He is known as the patron saint of animals, the environment, and is one of the two patron saints of Italy .  He is also known for his love of the Eucharist, his sorrow during the Stations of the Cross, and for the creation of the Christmas creche or Nativity Scene.

  1. I’m trying to be a little choosier with the like button but I have to say this pic has grown on me. I tend to stop scrolling every time I have to pass it. Nice job.
