After all the work in the garden I had been excited to get away for a picnic and an adventure with my good friend and her two little dogs .
So yesterday was the day ! And here we are at St Just in Roseland Church .
It is said that Joseph of Arimathea came with the Child Jesus and landed his ship here ...it has become a place of Christian pilgrimage .
The church is open and has a very welcoming feel to it .
I love this stained glass window of St Anthony , Our Lord Jesus and St Francis all feeding the birds !
I have a soft spot for St Francis .
The old baptismal font .....
.... and a very much earlier font along side .
I loved the introduction of these little things , which are keeping people spiritually and prayerfully interactive whilst walking around the church .
We were invited to take a hand woven Cross from the basket .To who ever made them I just want to say " Thankyou ! : ) " and that I love mine and am going to take this idea away with me ...to maybe introduce to our little St Michael's Church in Mullion .
I,ve already been looking up how to weave this " Ojo de Dias Cross " and am sorting through my embroidery thread hoard . I will also need some nice straight branches from the garden .
Back out side, we continued to walk along the river side , enjoying the primroses and bluebells and wondering about Little Lord Jesus , helping his Uncle tying up the boat along here maybe . I managed to jump down and collect some precious earth for both of us , from where those Holy feet may have walked .
Further along we were surprised to find a Holy Well . I put these pictures together as a collage for you to see .
The water is crystal clear and quite deep .
The pathway and simple garden leading up to the well are welcoming , beautifully and I think , most lovingly kept .
The Holy Well of St Just in Roseland .
Lichens on the branches over hanging the river .
I,m glad we got to go and see this lovely place before the primroses and bluebells fade .
The picnic was scrumptious doodley doo !
