I have been driving by this adorable chapel for years now; ever since we bought our ranch. I had made arrangements to come on Saturday to take some photos. There was a bit of a mix-up and I am not sure Leslie knew that I was coming. She had a house-full of guests, and lots going on, but she brushed the hair out of her face, and graciously welcomed me into her fabulous home. She showed me around and gave me a tour of their property. Today, I want to share her private chapel with you.
This adorable chapel is on her property. It is the first structure she and her husband built there, even before they built their house. Modeled after St. Martin, the smallest Catholic Church in Texas, Leslie wanted to erect the chapel to honor her mother.
I just realized that I didn’t get a shot of all the pews. There were about 4 rows if I remember correctly.
Leslie uses the chapel for prayer and quiet time. It was very peaceful here, but a little warmish today.
This antique piece below is a kneeling bench but can also be converted to a confessional.
In the distance you can see their big, red barn through the window.
Below, you can see a framed needlework version of The Lord’s Prayer.
Leslie says that on special occasions they have family services in the chapel.
They also have a wonderful gazebo nearby.
