Tear-shaped Church

            The tomb above could have been from one of the first Judeo-Christians
because it had the symbol of Christ and Christianity. 
Luke 19: 41-44
"As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, 'If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you.'"

The church in the picture looks out to Jerusalem and was built in the shape of a tear.  
The yellow pom-pom tree was beautiful... and want one in my own backyard with a picnic table underneath.  I looked everywhere online to find the type of tree, but couldn't find the specific one.  possibly a type of Mimosa tree... that won't grow in Cincinnati. 
Next stop... Garden of Gethsemane.
