The time is NOW.

This time last year:

I thought Christianity was dull.

I thought it was irrelevant.

I thought it was untrue.

Have you ever thought about how we’re passengers of time?

It picks us up… And at some point, time lets us go and carries on it’s way.

The only thing that remains constant with time is the truth.

But have you ever stopped and considered, what is really true?

Jesus said ‘I am the way, the truth and the life…’

What kind of nutter goes around saying stuff like that??… Is there really any truth to his claim?

The Dubliners 50th anniversary… What’s your memory?

With the Dubliners 50th anniversary tour this year, I decided to dedicate a post to these legends…

I’ve been brought up on their stuff, so it’s hard to decide a favourite.

But the song ‘McAlpines Fusileers’ is right up there, as it reminds me of my Dad and his work life experiences through the years.

I couldn’t find my favourite rendition on youtube, so I decided to upload it myself, along with some photos (you’ll see it’s a song that brings a lot of graphic imagery into my head!).

The gravelly voiced singer is Ronnie drew, one of the original members who died in 2008… One of a kind!

I love the violin in the background- do you hear the bittersweet tone to it?


Enjoy!

What do you make of beauty?

Do you ever look around and think WOW, isn’t this place beautiful??

Why is it that we can be left breathless when we see, for example, the sun setting over the horizon? Or a misty waterfall?

Even finding out how these things work scientifically doesn’t strip nature of its splendour!

How can we ‘meaningless pieces of protoplasm’ be filled with such awe?

Could it be a pointer that we’re more than that?

A pointer to God… A living stamp of His magnificence!

Tay road bridge (last week)… One reason to get up early in the morning!

‘He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.’ (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Be warned about the new cat treat…

Have you heard about the cat treat ‘dreamies’?

My cat becomes an absolute PSYCHO when I get these treats out.

So much so, that I have to put some on the outside doorstep and quickly shut the door so that she can’t keep chasing me for them!

It’s a bit concerning really. There must be some sort of addictive drug in there.

Nell is now in the habit of having a few each morning on the doorstep. She won’t eat her normal food until she has had some! A little spoilt if you ask me.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the advert is real…

Is there a cat rehab?

Be warned!

What horror movie could this picture be from?

 

This is a picture of my Gran on a swing

I took it thinking it was really cute.

But I now feel differently…

My cousin said it looks like a scene from a creepy horror movie!

But I can’t think which one… Do you know?

Or could this be a new horror movie idea?
