If I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have #love, I am nothing - 1 Corinthians 13:2

My dear friend the cardinal, always swings by to watch over me

What is love?

Love you all

♬ This 1982 classic by Dire Straits perfectly describes the present times ☺

".... And everyone agrees that these are classic symptoms of a monetary squeeze
On ITV and BBC they talk about the curse
Philosophy is useless, theology is worse
History boils over, there's an economics freeze
Sociologists invent words that mean industrial disease ...

They got free speech, tourists, police in trucks
Two men say they're Jesus, one of them must be wrong ..."

 - Mark Knopfler

♫ To fully appreciate #music of another #culture you've got to have lived and shared the same experiences as the musicians themselves

One of my favourites from Africa is this collection from the Sahara region

Here are a couple of samples

#Surrender Jesus didn't ask me to wear or worship the cross, but to carry my cross. What does that mean? ✞

What does it mean to carry my cross?

It means I must completely surrender myself to HIM 

"And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me, cannot be my disciple" - Jesus (Luke 14:27) 

"Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me" - Jesus (Matthew 16:24)

♫ Ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown - Smokey Robinson

"Now, if there's a smile on my face
Don't let my glad expression
Give you a wrong impression ..."

#Love I believe #marriage is a union between GOD, man and woman ☺

Therefore what GOD has joined together, let no one separate

Love is patient, love is kind ... Love never fails
What is love?

I love this sign because I see GOD and religion as two separate entities, the latter is man made

What an honour to be a part of this wedding

We will never be able to thank GOD enough for all HIS grace and mercy

May GOD bless the couple, more than we can ever thank them!

Happy weekend friends! What's that twittering sound outside ...?

Saw a robins nest too far away to get close to

And guess what, two little chicks waiting for their mother ...

The mother with fresh food

The little ones can hear the mother and are even more eager now

Feeding took less than 5 seconds and that's when they make the twittering sound (sorry, obscured by the leaves) ...

... and the mother was gone!

Last year a robin built its nest on the birch tree and I was able to get a closer look

#Henna Sometimes you have to wait for #art to dry before you can drive ... ☺

... unless you (my girls) want your steering covered in the same design 

Did you know that this type of art has existed for over 6000 years?

I love it!

Have a great weekend friends!
