Stained Glass Windows

"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Who doesn't like stained glass windows? I think every house should come with some. I wish my house had them.
These are just some of the magnificent windows we saw at the Joliet Area Historical Museum when we vacationed in Illinois earlier this month. The museum is inside the former Ottawa Street Methodist Church and has thankfully retained the beautiful windows from the building's former life. Eventually I will get around to sharing the rest of the pictures and stories from that trip to northern Illinois, but in the meantime, here are those windows.
