Lots of changes for me this year! Please drop by and see some of them on my new website, MelanieKaris.com. I look forward to "seeing" you there! Note: I am finally doing as my husband suggested I to do always - sometimes husbands are right! - and authoring my books and sites using my first name rather than my middle name - Ann - and a family name - Nichols (Ann Nichols). But you, my dear long time blogging friends, can call me Ann any time you want! Thanks!

What's unusual about this?
The plain window.
Of fourteen stain-glass windows only three survived when a bomb exploded near the church in 1944...
This is a vibrant church. Please visit its extensive and wonderful website to learn more about it's long history and current events that welcomes all!
As always it is the people who make up a church and as the following photos show, this St. Nicholas church has plenty!
Happy little ones:
Dancing girls (and one gracious boy!):

P.S. To all  my dear blogging friends who are kind and go to the trouble to leave a comment. Please write your blogspot or .com address down when you leave your comment. Now that I am part of google+ it doesn't always allow me to link back to you! Sometime it does but not always... Honestly - is this PROGRESS??
Thanks and blessings!
