While visiting the Pinta and Santa Maria the day was beautiful so why not take a walk down the historic Cape Girardeau Main St. The architecture of the buildings is beautiful. The 2 that caught my eye were Old St. Vincent’s Church and The B’nai Israel Synagogue. These buildings just stood out to me. The Synagogue weathered and worn, it has been involved in a fire, just shouted out to me with its textures and cracking. The site of something once great still standing proud.
The Old St Vincent’s Church was open for visitors so I had to step in. This building is amazing. The marble, the stone work, the brick work, and the original windows from the 1800’s. These two buildings were just a testament to how time marches on but with a good foundation and solid backbone anything can be withstood.
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
