“Thomas” said Jesus ” because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed is Sandy (and everyone else 🙂) who have not seen me but have believed.”John 20 : 29
Offagna in the lights of the night and then in morning light!
Then the bells began to ring . The ones from the smaller church first…
Then a warning from the pigeons that something was about to happen. They all took flight, a cloud of them from the big bell tower. I don’t blame the pigeons. Look at the size and movement of these bells.
Then walk into the relative quiet of the church…
Could it be Thomas? ” Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my hand in His side, I will not believe.” Then out again and on the medieval walls.
A village by night and morning light surrounded by farmland well ploughed ready for rain. This is their season for rain and it is far too warm. Looking at the forecast 80% chance on Friday and Saturday. Let us hope for that.
A thought that I will use and now have shared with you:
A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building (town) should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.(lamplight?)Robertson Davies ( 1913-1995 Canadian novelist and playwright, critic , journalist and professor.)
Thank you for looking at my post. I hope your weekend makes you smile.
“It was only a sunny smile , and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.”

Thank you for your lovely photos and beautiful bell rings. I enjoyed reading it.
The bells were something but the flight of the pigeons was too. They made me look up before the bells started there gongs. Glad you liked the photos.
Quite an experience, 👍👌

A magical post! Light and dark and bells. Loved it! Enjoy Italy.
Thank you Shelly. Music is your love. Except those big bells were a little overbearing close by.
Missing the church bells from our childhood in South Africa We don’t hear them often any more Loud but I wonderful! I like the saying that the morning light scatters the night 👏 Thanks for sharing Sandy
My absolute pleasure. Sometimes where we park they still use bells to ring the time of day. ( not through the night) Glad it brought back childhood memories.
Thank you for sharing another video of bells! Those have such a wonderful sound. I wish I lived beside them and could plan my day around the sound.
Every town has its own bells
You would have a lot to choose from. They are amazing.
