Jesus is talking about himself and God and this is my understanding about what Jesus is saying. All the people who the Father (God) has given to me (Jesus) will come to me and I (Jesus) will not throw (cast) them out.
(There is no force only a daily choice to be governed by the Holy Spirit and His words from The Bible.) John 6 : 37
Chiavari’s market square. It is 20’C with a few spots of rain. The air is pleasantly warm and we are almost in the middle of November.
Our park up is facing the beach . As close as can be to the sea. It is free to park and dogs can run free too.
Stones and dark almost black sand. These are fragments of durable heavy minerals where the stream and wave energy has carried away the lighter quartz.
The sea and dark sands of Chiavari.
A statue of Columbus looking out to sea. He was born in 1451 in Genoa. Cristoforo Colombo the Italian explorer. On the three corners of this triangular shaped pedestal are three symbolised ships of his fleet. Nina Pinta Santa Maria He died aged 54 possibly from reactive arthritis. This could have been from food poisoning on one of his ocean voyages. He completed 4 voyages across the Atlantic Ocean which opened the way for widespread colonisation. He stands alone. A man self educated who read what he was interested in, came to his own conclusions sometimes wrong but followed his understanding. He says : “For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps.” He was 14 years old when he went to sea and ended up having his expeditions sponsored by the Catholic Monarchs of Spain.
Here are a few things he said:
“Riches don’t make a man rich, they only make him busier. “
“By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions , one may unfailingly arrive at his own chosen goal or destination.”
I wouldn’t have thought to put blue flowers on this red leafed plant edged in green. But that is how it is. Nature so unique.
A vase of artichokes. A good thing to see.
Browns/rust on navy blue.
Cream, brown and a splash of orange.
Look deep into this picture the pigeons are stealing bread from a child. All in the streets of Chiavari. Then back to the sea where…
…the Entella river meets the incoming sea approximately under the railway bridge. The Entella is a short river which with its tributeries flow from the Ligurian Apennine Mountains into the Ligurian sea.
Below the highest crest of the waves is a black dot, a person, surfing the waves with their powerful narrowing as they enter the constraints of a river bank and brown, white, grey blocked harbour wall.
It is a peaceful evening down by the sea with a natural roar of waves. Its sound blocks out all other.
Thank you for looking at this post.
