Mission San Jose del Cabo Catholic Church

Each year, our Christmas Card is a sketch of church from somewhere we visited during the year.  Last April my husband and I enjoyed a relaxing vacation in Cabo San Jose.  A quiet little town, about 30 miles north of Cabo San Lucas on the Baja peninsula in Mexico.   

This church dominates the town square, where on Thursday nights in the summer you can stroll their "art walk" with the works of local artisians!   The Mission San Jose del Cabo Anuiti church was first established in 1730 and prospered as the anchor of the community for many years, but primarily due to "acts of God" ....fire, hurricanes, and even a mosquito infestation it moved it's location four times, finally resting here on this spot across from the Plaza Mijares in 1932.  I think our lives can be like that too!  The "acts of God" can detour our best laid plans, but somehow with His help and hearts of faith we land on our feet and we don't just survive, we can thrive and life often turns out better than what we ever imagined!
