Inspired Sunday in WV




St Peters Roman Catholic Church in Harpers Ferry WV is a very inspiring structure.  It sits way up on top of the hill and can be seen from across the potomac river.  These stone steps leading up to the top are steep and can be very slippery when wet!   I tell you...I was huffing and puffing by the time I reached the top!

                                                          
                                                    go here to see more gorgeous churches

It's really pretty. I don't remember seeing it from my trips to Harper's Ferry, but then again, that was many, many years ago!! Thanks for sharing it this week.

An attractive church sitting up high like that. Nice post for this day. Those steps would be an easy place to fall when they are wet.

This is a beautiful church. I like the layered stone wall around the area as well as the stone steps.

With those stone walls, not surprised that there are Irish in the original neighborhood. :-) What a great perspective from which to shoot that first photo, Janis. Or, were you just trying to decide if you needed to climb the steps to get the perfect shot?

You can do lots of huffing and puffing when visiting Harper’s Ferry. It is Bud’s favorite place to go because the headquarters of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy is there…and the old hotel…and lots of history, This is such a nice church.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
