Bless the Lord who forgives you and heals you. Who redeems your life from destruction. Who shows you love, kindness and mercy . Gives you good food to eat so you are young and strong. All this if you let Him. He never forces His love on anyone.Psalms 103: 3-5 ( Sandy’s understanding from a reading used at today’s service)
Popeswood has many trees but there are eleven , oak trees ,coming close to 200 years old.
I wondered why all the brambles had been cut and cleared away from each, just as they were fruiting. I know now that each of the eleven trees is being surrounded by iron barriers.
I wonder why.
Are they going to sleep walk?
Are they planning to drop their branches on us?
A few days ago I asked the “why” to the men working on burying these black, iron bars deep into the ground and they honestly said:
” I don’t know!”
Do you know?
Here are a few sayings:
Don’t cry because it is over.
Smile because it happened.Dr. Suess
In the end, it is not the years in your life that count. Its the life in your years.Abraham Lincoln
Just living is not enough. We must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.Hans Christian Anderson
Our week has no Monday . May your week be going well.

Sandy I love the quote from Dr Suess It was a beautiful funeral and pageantry Today I do feel like I’ve know Queen Elizabeth 11 personally A lady never to be forgotten x
Yes me too. It was all dignified and done with so much patience.
Another lovely arrangement. The colours are just beautiful. I hope they’re not planning to build in Popeswood meadow… That would be sad.
No! Just trying to make it more park like.
