Scousers rule! (City of Culture and all that…..)

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

Well you can take the ‘lady’ out of Liverpool but can you take Liverpool out of the lady? I’m talking Cherie Blair – how not to bow out gracefully – she had to have the last word and I should know – my dad used to call me “last word Kate” – I’ve always liked the name Kate!

And so onto important matters – children – all around the world children are targets. Maybe its just me but increasingly the news involves children being abducted, targeted by evil people in all sorts of evil ways – no culture can claim the moral high ground – we’re not protecting our children – from so called third world countries where parents actually sell their own children into a life of vice to li’l ol’ England – children killing children. What hope for such societies? Thank God for the release of little Margaret in Nigeria, continue to pray for little Madeleine and her safe return to her parents. Jesus is our only hope. In the ‘last days’ evil will increase. Carman sings a song “Friday’s here but Sunday’s on it’s way.” Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again. Amen.

We’re all going on a summer holiday – well, hopefully, God willing, weather permitting and terrorists permitting. We’ve got to leave at 3:30 a.m. for a 6 a.m. flight from Liverpool (John Lennon) airport “Above Us Only Sky” is the slogan – if only. Hence, I’m killing time here. We’re off to Spain. I’ve never been before and I am looking forward to it especially Barcelona – I love cities – cities of culture, just like Liverpool. We’ve been practicing the language – Peter’s not too bad but surprisingly, Alex can remember a lot just from a few classes in primary school. I’m taking the phrase book – I’m quite good with the pronounciation though because a lot of words are “guttural” not unlike scouse!

My cousin is having to face a ‘Goliath’ with regards to her health at the mo’ and I just have to say her attitude and strength of character have so impressed me. She is so dignified and I am very proud of her. I know there are many having to face their ‘Goliaths’ at this time and I want you to know that you are upheld in prayer. Jesus says “Never will I leave you, never will I foresake you.” Call upon Him now.

The Taylors have been to Oz and went diving in the Great Barrier Reef – their pictures are superb – what an opportunity and what an experience – the next best thing to going yourself is knowing people who have been and who share their experience with you. (That includes breakages, Sue, if you read this).

Barney has gone on his hols too to The Ekers’ residence – thanks Ekers.

Well, just over three hours to go before I say !Hola! to Spain and for now say !Adios! to yiz all.

It’s looking a little bare over here at goodthing, so I’ve decided to post a photograph of one of Sandra’s lilies, just to add a little colour to the front page 🙂

Lily

It was photographed out in the back garden a couple of days ago.

Just testing

This is just a quick post to make sure that it all works out OK.
