Somehow today seems like the perfect day to remember a little chapel two miles from my house. This chapel can now be rented out for weddings and special events but during the Presidential term of Dwight D. Eisenhower it was often used as the place they would go for a bit of spiritual solace.
The week before Thanksgiving I heard the Eisenhower Chapel was going to be open to the public as part of Opera Colorado's "Fete de NOEL". This is a small building which has been in existence since 1941 and listed on the National Historic Registry for the past 20 years. I have seen and drawn its exterior for many years and was very much interested in seeing its interior. I was also looking for some color experiences to put me in the mood for the upcoming holidays.
This unpretentious small building has housed a variety of emotions. I thought about that as I put together this Post as our family is experiencing a lot of happiness as we move into a season of traditional colors. Our families color this season will be the color of JOY as our youngest daughter has become engaged. You can read her version and feel her excitement at http://www.textontextiles.blogspot.com/.
