SUNDAY THOUGHT

How clearly the sky reveals God's glory!
    How plainly it shows what he has done!
 Each day announces it to the following day;
    each night repeats it to the next.

Psalm 19:1 

Photographed at at old caravan, Whiterock.


Have a Blessed Sunday.

Thanks you for your visit and comments.

The Weekend Roundup and Weekend Reflections

Time for Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup and this week the letter is Y and young. Can you see the YOUNG tadpoles in the dish and this YOUNG boy with his grandma in the YELLOW jumper are looking to see what else they can fish out of the pond.  You can see a REFLECTION in the water (albeit not a very distinct one).




Thank you for visiting and also for your comments.

SUNDAY THOUGHT

Our life is like a flower that grows quickly and then dies away. Our life is like a shadow that is here for a short time and then is gone.

Photographed in Cape Town South Africa.

Have a Blessed Sunday.

The Weekend Roundup and Weekend Reflections

Time for The Weekend Roundup and Weekend Reflections and today is the letter X and OUR own choice.  So today I hope no one minds but I am going to tell you an Xtraordinary story.  It was Christmas Day in South Africa and very early Jon, Daniel and Anna got up and decided to climb this mountain that our house was looking onto.  What makes this story Xtraordinary is that Anna had been suffering from M.E for the past 3 years and at times could not even get out of bed or feed herself.  However, about a month prior to going on this holiday, she was miraculously healed so she threw herself into every possible activity during this holiday and now this was the biggest challenge. These are photographs I took (obviously not very good but a great distance away) show them near the start, up at the top of the mountain and coming back again.














We give all the Glory to our Lord for HIS miraculous healing of Anna.


The letter X above and my REFLECTION image below were taken in my home town of Bangor at the Long Hole.


Thanks for your visit and also your comments.
