Tiny Chapel - The Church at Texas

Very quiet (except, of course, for the constancy of I-45 traffic 200 feet to the east). Someone has referred to it as eerie. Maybe. Certainly lonely and seemingly secluded (again, except for highway proximity). A damp, dreary day added to the remote feel.

Tiny Chapel - The Church at Texas

Very eerie and weird. Two buildings are locked. The "chapel" is an open area and next to it is an area with some potatoes, cherry tomatoes and cherries in packages in the heat.

Tiny Chapel - The Church At Texas

I have finally been sent help to maintain The Church at Texas property and again apologize for not maintaining it because of my health. There are yellow lotus plants in the one-acre lake and also the outdoor chapel for solace and peace in a time of your turmoil.

Tiny Chapel: The Church at Texas

I am the one who has developed The Church at Texas and I apologize for its appearance. It is not always perfect, mostly due to my crippling neuropathy and no knees worth standing on, as I am alone. I understand your expectation should be high, and again I do apologize on behalf of YAHWEH AND YAHSHUA, THE FATHER AND THE SON OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. May they send me a helpmate.

Tiny Chapel

We stopped at several places from Roadside American on our way to Galveston, and this by far was the most disappointing stop. It was a junky mess on the inside of the chapel, and the outside was not much better.
