Scenes in Stephenson and Middleburg.

Inspired Sunday: This is a Pentecostal Holiness Church called Word of Life Ministries. It's in Stephenson, a small town north of Winchester.

Also in Stephenson is this post office. Below the American flag they are flying the POW-MIA flag to commemorate prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action. Flying this flag became standard in late 2019. 

I am still taking post office pictures to honor our postal service. Today we drove through Middleburg so I stopped to get a picture of their post office. It's a distinguished brick building partly hidden by shrubbery. It's on the main street (US Route 50) near shops and restaurants. 

Below are two scenes I photographed near the post office. The town has a small population but a bustling business area due to its location and a glamorous reputation from a long association with celebrities including Jackie Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor.

  1. Hello,
    Pretty photos of the church post office and the town. Enjoy your day, have a happy new week!

  2. Beautiful views of the city, church and post office .., you shoot the pictures beautifully.

  3. There is something very appealing about that last photo. I really like it. Hope your new week is off to a great start!

  4. Love the red brick building I see in the first picture. The door of the Middleburg's post office is also beautiful. Nice village, although its small population.
    Have a nice week.

  5. Boa tarde parabéns pela excelente fotografia. O Templo Mórmon é lindo mesmo.

  6. Flying a POW-MIA flag is such a wonderful wonderful tribute. Love your post office photos and the last photos is so colourful!


  7. What a great idea to take photos of post office buildings! I hope the concerted attack on the efficiency of the US Postal Service will be stopped soon. Trying to prevent people from voting is bad enough -- but the postal service does a lot more than just deliver ballots!

    be well... mae at

  8. A nice collection of photographs.

    All the best Jan
