"Nature gives to every time and season, some beauties of its own,
And from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave,
It is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy,
That we can scarcely mark their progress."
~ Charles Dickens ~
From the window of my condo, I am privileged to gaze upon this towering church steeple in historic Charleston. Seemingly within arms reach! The pealing of the bells mark the passing of each hour. And what gets me each and every time I hear them is that the first three notes are the same first three notes from The Fray's song, "You Found Me". And the lyrics to those first three notes? "I found God..." It's as clear as a bell, if you'll pardon that unknowingly written pun. Goosebumps rise on my arms as my eyes take in the rich history and my ears hear a contemporary connection from the melodic sound emanating from the tower. Yes, past and present intertwined!
(The photos were taken in one day, marking the passing of time. And the church? St. Phillips Church, established in 1680... the oldest church in the Holy City. I am so happy to share this with you!)
