Day 232 – Finally! Red Doors!
Today, I had a mommy-daughter day with Macy. We went on a photo excursion, had some Indian food, and then went to see Secretariat. (Which by the way, was one of the best movies I have ever seen!)
During our excursion, I finally found a church with red doors! My friend Mindy has some amazing churches near her, and many of them have red doors. So I have been on the hunt for red doors here for quite some time. What’s the deal with red doors? Well, historically the red doors of a church were a symbol of sanctuary – a place where a soldier could not pursue an enemy. The red signified the blood of Jesus Christ who came to save all who took refuge in him. People who passed through the red doors were safe. Today the doors continue to provide safety and refuge to all who enter.
I was so excited when I finally found one, that I sent Mindy a text to tell her! And bonus…I actually found two right beside each other. This one was my favorite.
