And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the different people of the earth cry with sadness, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Matthew 24 : 30 Sandy’s use of cry with sadness for mourn.
His lightenings enlightened the world: the earth saw and trembled….Psalms 97:4 Psalm 97 is filled with the Power of God‘s return.
After a high mountain pass
we travelled through open planes so different from the mountainous or seaside Greece we know.
Some of the grass had seeded already.

This flat open area is a vast agricultural area with the city of Larissa being an agricultural centre and a national transport hub linking the port of Volos and the cities of Thessaloniki and Athens. It is believed that Hippocrates died here in 370BC. He was born on Kos 460 BC.

Here he stands above his museum which is closed for a while.

Besides the Hippocratic Oath he said some other interesting things. Here are a few:

Let food be thy medicine, let medicine be thy food.

All disease begins in the gut.

Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.

Walking is man’s best medicine.

The chief virtue that language can have is clearness, and nothing detracts from it so much as the use of unfamilar words.

Hippocrates 460-370 BC

You know you are Greek when lemon juice, olive oil and oregano go on everything.

The main Greek Orthodox church in Larissa.
A gentle kiss.
Many were the bows and kisses.
A lady was cleaning the glass with so much care.
I guess covid has been the issue.

A special thought for those in Italy clearing up after so much flooding last week.

I hope you are well and safe.

Sandy 🙂
