October, 2020

What strange times we are living in.   Every day for the last 6 months we have looked at the news and prayed that Covid is going away, but it now looks as if more patience and praying are needed.  However, it is not only the virus but what it brings – to the elderly and the sick or those awaiting operations or test results, unable to see a Doctor or go to hospital.  It is so sad.

I saw an advert in a magazine for an “Easy read, date, time and temperature at a glance clock.”  That’s not all.  It has accurate advanced digital timing to one second in a million years.  It also puts the clock right to jump forward an hour in Spring and back in Autumn.  It makes my little clock by the side of my bed look like something from the ice age.  It cost £1.50 about 10 years ago and it is good enough for me. 

My son showed me a video on his ‘phone of his son scoring a great goal. It was lovely to see but most of the photos and videos on mobile ‘phones are never printed, whereas an ordinary ‘photo is forever.  In fact our son had our wedding ‘photo (62 years ago) put on a canvas to display on the wall.  It is beautiful.

Kris Kristofferson, the singer/songwriter who is now in his seventies, was talking about the good times and bad times.  He described what had sustained him, saying, “The faith of my father got me this far.  The smiles of my children will take me the rest of the way.”

A New Year During my early years the New Year did not have an impact on me.  I was tucked up in bed well before midnight.  As I grew older I remember my mum opening the back door to “Let the old year out and the new year in.”  Sometimes we lived close enough to the village church to hear the bells ringing in the New Year.&n...
