Dear God, Please Let Everyone Like This Post

I've tried writing today's opening paragraph several times but keep erasing it.  Today's post is all about churches and church remodels and people tend to get a little touchy when you start chatting about the Lord.

Since I tend to worship at the alter of what's for dinner, the White Rabbit Restaurant in singapore has me singing hallelujah 

Dining and reading in a defunct church sounds just fine, but I'm not so sure about living in one:

Of course, I probably wouldn't be too mad at the Lord above for blessing me with such lovely windows

So, what do you say, are you totes in love with the church remodels:

Or are you still trying to figure it all out?
