What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

The Big Picture

The front of the capitol building takes your breath away. The doorways carved, lampposts refined, the green-domed top the icing on the cake. But, the carvings guarding both sides of the door were what took your breath away.

But then...I saw the BACK of the capitol building.

Nothing could have prepared me for that. I was awe-struck.

Webs of staircases zigged and zagged visitors to the door. Hundreds of stairs, most barracaded off due to snow.
Acres of concrete squares, fountains, statues, pillars; all with the one task of drawing you into the building. They were captivating, they did their job.

Glad you had a good time- I really love the last photo of this grouping of Matt pushing the stroller amidst all the towering buildings- It is awesome and it looks like you had a lot of "photo opps" on Saturday!
