Three days before Easter is totally fine, right?
I’m attempting to read the whole bible this year. If you would like to follow along in my adventure, I’ll be posting verses that confuse me or inspire me or are just plain pretty on lessonsforme.tumblr.com. I know not all my folowers are religious so I’m keeping it all contained to that blog so you don’t have to see that content if you don’t want to. If you have any questions about my faith or why I’m doing this, please drop me an ask!

Iona Abbey Church
The church is the centre of the abbey, where the monks spent much of their time. Although the abbey church has been repeatedly altered and much restored, much of its medieval architecture survives. It is still in use as a place of worship.
This makes me want to watch Book Of Kells approx. five thousand more times.
